Great Q. Huge portions. What else is there to say? Bring some friends and get "the Shovel". You won't regret it.

We sat out in the tiki lounge for the first time and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the music. Our food arrived quickly and as usual, was most excellent. Another fun night at KC's!

This is a hidden gem. A great bbq restaurant, great food , a down home old style atmosphere. Great homestyle food at a decent price. The only reason we scored 4/5 was the staff could have been a bit more friendly.

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...
