My husband and I went here on a rainy Saturday to try somewhere new. The food was fantastic and the portions were great. This place knows what they are doing. The sausage and ribs were fantastic. We will be back soon!

Not a discount operation, this place provides superb products and a comfortable atmosphere. Family friendly, and a menu that offers every conceivable option, this is a great dining experience. Portions are very generous, and sides (side dishes) are fabulous. Not overpriced, but not inexpensive. You...More

Big spruce up done recently and the place looks great. Upstairs bar has quite a few tvs and a huge one at the end of the bar. It is a lively and fun atmosphere! Food is good in general. We brought a guest from North...More

I've eaten at BBQ restaurants before, but by far, KC's is the best. I had the "BBQ Beef Brisket Sammie" with mashed potatoes (from scratch, because they're just like they ones I've made at home) and my husband had "The Cardiac Sam" with fries -...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...
