I've been a take-out customer for years, buying mostly ribs and brisket. Always good, and the staff is small-town friendly, which is an important factor for me. I'm sure if you ever got a less than satisfactory meal (never happened to me) the staff would make it right. Ordered a smoked ham for Thanksgiving - I know that's not traditional,... More

Good Food and very nice service. I would eat here again. Smoked turkey is great. I had the ribs and they were so tender, fell off the bones. The beans tasted so good, just like my Grandma cooked.

Have eaten here quite a few times. They always have a Lucy special during the week and almost always very delish.

We love the Rib Shack but please call ahead to be sure someone will be there! We can't keep up with their odd hours. Food is great! Pickles are incredible! We buy them by the quart to bring home!

Rib Shack is a good BBQ place with daily specials. I have had fast, friendly service the couple of times I've gone. Like most BBQ places, the food isn't cheap.

Just took several people to the Rib Shack for lunch, the service was fast and the food was excellent. Felt like it was a good value as well, no problem recommending them.

I love to visit relatives in Granbury so I have an excuse to eat at the Rib Shack. The ribs have been consistantly good, can't vouch for other items as I do not stray from the rib plate when I visit. The service, desserts, and piggles are great too!

The day before Thanksgiving, when I picked up the smoked turkey and giblet gravy I'd ordered, I was surprised how small the turkey was. It came with a quart of giblet gravy, and I bought an extra quart. And I was surprised that there wasn't even one little piece of giblets in either quart container of gravy. So, we went... More
