Very cool atmosphere--exposed wood, fun license plates, classic rock in the speakers--but the food is what will keep you coming back. Soul food done right in this little corner of NH. And extremely good service from warm, welcoming people.

Yes the prices are a little high but the ribs are the biggest around and all the food is good, very consistent and the service is awesome so I don’t mind paying a little more.

I love beef brisket and theirs is very good. My Fiance had the ribs and he had to bring the rest of his meal home they give good size portions. We went back a week later and we had their chicken wings they were great.

Stopped off here for dinner on the way back to Boston from the mountains. Ribs & pulled pork were great. Friendly staff, quick service and good sized portions. Would definitely visit again if in town.

My husband and I love the BBQ food here. The staff is friendly. The s’mores for dessert is an awesomely fun thing to have. Don’t miss out...save a little room to make your own s’mores.

We drove from the Boston area to The Currier Museum for the day and then wanted a place nearby for lunch and this restaurant popped up in our online search. We both hadn't had barbecue in a while so we agreed to try KC's. We...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. 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...
