Review of Rib Shack

We only had rib plates so can't comment on other meats. We couldn't keep the meat on the bones! Compared to some ribs, they might be a bit dry, but I think it's because you add your own sauce. I loved, loved, loved them. Good price too at $8.95 for 1/2 pound and 2 sides. Potato salad good, but other sides just okay. You order at the counter and everything is self-serve and a little slow. Atmosphere - not much. But it's cool, comfortable enough and friendly. Will definitely return.

I used to live in Stephenville, and I am a big fan of Hard 8 BBQ. This BBQ is better. It's a little bit slow, and the tables are crowded, but the food is great.

Shack-y place with better than average BBQ. The ribs are quite good. Sides are average unfortunately.

Down on the farm looking tin shack with amazing smells coming out of it! Great ambiance runed by tables full of trays and used plates, glasses and silverware. Had the largest rib plate, (about 3/4 of a rack of baby backs) at a very reasonable price ($12). Found the rib meat well smoked, and tasty but too dry, all the fat had been cooked out of the ribs. The meat fell off the bone but the BBQ sauce needs some flavor to make up for the dry meat. The special sweet and hot pickles were nothing special, sort of bland at first then just hot, no sweet to savory taste. Sweet tea was good. Took a long time to get the food considering all that had to be done was dish it up. Never saw anyone come from behind the counter to check on the rest of the house, the several tables piled with the remains of other diners sort of spoiled the very good decoration and ambiance.
