Upon our recent visit to KC's we decided to order the "Shovel" as family members were with us and they wanted to try a little bit of everything. The food and service were "spot on" and we even had leftovers to take home.

Friendly, fun and happy restaurant. The food is outstanding and you just can't wait to go back again. When the weather is warm the outdoor atmosphere is great with a tiki bar and entertainment. You will love this place!

Plasticware and plates. Paper towels everywhere on refurbished spickets. Like a true BBQ, the effort is in the food, not the wares. Four different sauces brought to the table do u don't hafta commit to one taste. Great sides and fair prices.

The BBQ is always awesome. You won't be disappointed. It is our go to restaurant. The atmosphere is welcoming and the staff treat you like an old friend. When the weather is accommodating the patio is a very pleasant place to have your meal.

Welcome to KC's Rib Shack Barbecue restaurant. New Hampshire's favorite BBQ for close to two decades. At KC's Rib Shack, serving the world's finest hickory-smoked ribs and BBQ is our passion.

Our Southern style Barbeque, Bar-B-Que, Bar-B-Cue, just Q, or however you spell it, is seasoned with our own recipe of different dry rubs and cooked without sauce. Its then cut to order and prepared straight from our smokers which run 24 hours a day...
