This is a counter service restaurant and they bring the food to your table. I had high hopes in that they specialize in ribs. I had the combo ribs and smoked chicken. The chicken was good but a bit dry. The ribs were excellent. Cole slaw was good. I thought the prices were a little high for a non-table service... More

We ordered the pork plate and while the meat was tender, it tasted like it had been in the warmer too long. My recommendation would be to bust your butts at the last minute before serving to retain the moisture within the meat. Thankfully, the sauces at Shane's are excellent and were able to overcome the moisture problems. However, we... More

I have eaten here several time and the ribs are very good. It's counter service ordering, and they bring the food to your table. Drinks are self serve. I think the ribs are tender and juicy, fall off the bone good! The serving of fries is huge and they are good! Extra sauce is available at the tables.

Our fav BBQ restaurant is closed on Sunday's so we thought we'd try Shane's. We shared a sampler which was perfect split. Ribs, BBQ chicken, grilled chicken tenders and fries and fried okra. Both the sides were exceptional. Sauces are varied and tasty, especially for the heat lover. Chicken tenders were a little over peppered, the BBQ chicken chopped/ no... More

Recently visiting in Huntsville with family. We took our three grandchildren to lunch at Shanes on Sunday. We fed our group of five (including two teenage boys!) for around $40.00. Wonderful ribs, chicken wings, bbq chicken and great sides. Even had some leftovers to take home! Nice atmosphere and friendly helpful staff. Highly recommend!

It's not the best of barbecue, but it is the best I've found in Huntsville. Unlike many barbecue restaurants, they have tasty brunswick stew also. The wings are also good.

I have been visiting Shane's for a few months now and this is my first review. At first I had some reservations about this restaurant as it was located in an area that the so called foodies hang out. Shane's does not fit that category, you know the one, the girlfriend loves and the boyfriend hates, but goes along with... More

Recently visited Shane's for lunch. Decided on a "Big Daddy Sandwich w/fries. At Shane's "Big Daddy" means BIG so we shared along with drinks and a peach cobbler. Service by Kyndra was friendly and quick and the sandwich was very sufficient. Shahes recently moved to a smaller location in the same shopping center and is more intimate and quiet. It... More

The experience was just excellent. Food was prepared well, service was great, facility was well maintained and prices were good. The only problem was getting into the shopping center as there was no alternative entrances. Highly recommended.
