Rib Shack is a great local barbeque restaurant in Galesburg. The prices are right and my wife and I have never had a bad meal there. It does get crowded on weekends, but that is only an indication of the quality.

Indoor picnic tables with paper towel rolls. How else do you eat ribs but making a mess? Crowded on weekends.

Really enjoyed the food we had pulled pork, ribs, wings, fries, and baked sweet beans. All was very good. Beer and soft drinks, no mixed drinks or wine. Service was acceptable to good.

Rib Shack has the best pork ribs we've ever had - hands down. We go whenever we can afford the splurge (calories and otherwise!)

My dad loves smoking meats and loves eating smoked meat. My family has eaten at many BBQ joints just to hear "not as good as rib shack". Their full slab of ribs is big and delicious, as is their half chicken, and their brisket. The sauces are wonderful spicy or regular. Its a small family owned place with not a lot of seating. If you like meat this is the place to go.
