We have eaten here several times and we are never disappointed. The atmosphere is is rustic and the food is really authentic BBQ. For a larger group you need to try the SHOVEL and sample a host of different meats and sides. We will certainly...More

Someone forgot to put the mayo in the coleslaw. Ribs, fries, and pulled pork were great as usual. Kevin a little quality control on the slaw please.

Had the ribs smoked perfectly with collard greens which were done to perfection along with one the best onion rings I'v had in very long time. Service was excellent, prompt attention from the waitress when we seated and she followed up after we received our...More

This was my second time at Best BBQ I've ever been. Great food. We were three and ordered the shovel it was enough for five! We took food home. Best fries ever! Service was great. We will definitely go back when we visit Manchester again.

KCs is a great place for a family dinner. If you're really feeling adventurous, order the shovel for the entire family. Four of us were eating it, and we're still able to take home some leftovers.

Good ribs and beer but the sides need some work. I had the wings the last tie I was there and the garlic wings were real good. I have eaten her probably 10 times and enjoy the barbecue. I would recommend they get a few...More

We loved everything we ordered. Ribs were amazing. The sides were also very good. Ate outside and really enjoyed ourselves. Recommend this for both parties and catering!

We come here once every 6 months. The food is great and the servers are all very pleasant. They have a kids menu for your children.

I dine at KC's quite often - I enjoy good BBQ and this is one of the best in New England. Portions are generous, the ambiance of the restaurant is interesting (although I prefer the booths to the newly-remodeled high-top tables). The Brunswick Stew is...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...
