As usual, KC’s hit it out of the park. The service, food and atmosphere are great, this has become our favorite q in NH. Stop in, and you will not leave disappointed.

Great meal but review downgraded because they didn't ask if we wanted straws (and straws hurt our environment).

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.
