It is a busy little place with limited seating. The food is well-proportioned, well-priced, and tastes pretty good (I found my ribs a touch too salty and cole slaw had too much sauce). I would come back :)

The food was absolutely delicious but the service was even better. Adel was super friendly and went out of his way to give excellent service.

Great Portuguese food. Very small and rustic. Take out great. Either lunch or dinner. Wonderful serving staff. Very little indoor seating. A few picnic tables outside. Have been there a number of times. Take out an order and go to our magnificent waterfront.

Always delightful. The guys are incredibly polite, friendly, ambitious, and make ridiculously delicious food. Only my 3rd visit, but if I lived closer I would surely spend most of my budget here. :P

My hubby and I each had the chicken plate. One with hot sauce and the other mild. Everything was delicious. The potatoes, the rice, the chicken and even the slaw. The Shack is totally worth the drive.

We were very disappointed. The chicken was very spicy and the potatoes were mushy from being over cooked. We really don't understand the good reviews on this eatery....
