Wow are they doing the business. The fried cheese is awesome. Food is good for a hamburger- bbq joint. Fried chicken sandwiches would be better without the wheat bun (too tough). Would go back, fun atmosphere.

You cannot go wrong with The Shacks ribs, brisket, or turkey. Their Frito pies(with pork and beef) are outstanding. The owners really care.

This BBQ is just average. Just about everything we ordered was way over peppered. The brisket, beans, collard greens, etc. It is okay but I have had better. Maybe just a bad cook day. Might try it again??
