The food is so good we always order extra so we have leftovers. The atmosphere is casual and fun. We love going in the summer and eating at the Tiki Bar Outdoors. Sometimes they have live music and it's just a really great time.

We were in the area, at a local hotel (no power at our house) and decided to check this place out. We were not disappointed. We were greeted promptly, seated quickly, and our drink order was taken right away. The selections on the menu were...More

I have been eating here since January 2017. I’m from Texas and this Texan loves BBQ. KC’s Rib Shack has been a great spot for me to get my BBQ fix!

We love the ribs and you got to try the pig tails-so addictive. Best deal is to join the points program.

Food was delicious and the service was extremely attentive, even with how busy it was. The feedbag shovel can easily feed four adults and I would highly recommend it. Sides were excellent, if we ever drive through Manchester I will definitely stop here again!

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. No white tablecloths here, you'll sit at butcher paper covered tables under the Christmas lights and pull from a roll of paper towels to wipe our homemade BBQ sauces from your face. 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...
