We've been going to KC's for many years. My husband has cravings for their dry rub ribs and it's his favorite place for ribs after trying many other places. He doesn't use any of the sauces they provide at the table to add to the...More

Loved this BBQ place. The upstairs has a great vibe! The service was quick and food delicious. I tried the BBQ ribs which were huge! Others tried the pulled pork and brisket. Both were yummy. The sides were great and the corn bread was fantastic!

Love KC's Ribshack. The new bar is awesome, the tiki bar is always great and the staff make you feel like your at Cheers. My favorite is the brisket points. Always worth the drive for us.

The outside of the building is misleading. It is pretty spacious inside. Lots of interesting things to look at upstairs in the restaurant. My husband got pork ribs and they were plentiful and juicy. I really enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich and fries. My husband’s...More

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 food and exceptional service are definitely two things we take seriously.

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...
