Grabbed a two meat platter and had more than enough food. Brisket was little dry but ribs had great flavor.

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.

I honestly don't know why people go stupid for the place in Wolfforth, but The Shack is my first choice when in the mood for BBQ in the LBK. To be honest, brisket is so-so, sausage is good, but pork ribs are some of the...More
