Headed to KC’s for family dinner out before our older son heads back to school While we had a bit of a wait for a table, once seated, the service was excellent and our food came out very quickly after ordering!

KC's Rib Shack is possible the best BBQ restaurant outside of the Lone Star State! The meat is cooked to perfection. The portions are Texas sized. The restaurant is coolly decorated. The upstairs bar is a great place for meeting friends and a predinner drink....More

Description
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...
