The was good. It's almost like a Mission BBQ but a lot smaller and not as many condiments. But pretty good food.

Picked up dinner for parents and brothers and his wife. My chicken was good but they forgot my brothers Mac and cheese. I will say when I went to pick up the order the atmosphere was nice and the two employees were very polite. Food was hot but the Mac and cheese missing hurt the rating. On the fence if... More

We decided to go to Shane's Barbeque for dinner one night. We were surprised by the variety of choices were we able to choose from on the menu. We ordered and the food came out smoking hot. The barbeque was absolutely delicious. The sauces were great too! It made us want more. For dessert we ordered banana pudding. It was... More

Near the Wal-mart shopping center. That makes it very convenient to stop for a quick bite, whenever running errands. Food is very good. Always tasty and freshly made. A variety of sauces complete the BBQ experience. A chain, but run independently. I only wish there were more Shane's across Florida, as long as they were as good as this one!

They have ribs, chicken (every way you could imagine), chopped chicken, bbq pulled pork, all kinds of sides, kids meals, and they even do burgers!

Excellent BBQ restaurant. Always clean, great service, and good BBQ. Many selections on the menu. BBQ chicken, pork, and beef. Potatoes, salads, and desserts. A excellent place to go. It's not a chain. A little cheaper by not being on the beach.

Having lived in Kansas City, St Louis and Texas... I really enjoy good BBQ. Sauced, rubbed, smoked (no mustard please)... it all has good flavors and nuances. Shane's left me wondering if they even bothered. While the service was fast and friendly, the spices were weak. The sauce was bland. The meat was dry. The sides were sparse. And they... More

I have eaten at Shane's many times during the last 2 or 3 years. I usually get take-out. I really like the pulled pork and the ribs. My husband also likes the smoked wings. Their Big Daddy b-b-q sandwich is huge and is a very good value. They have good sides and desserts, but I haven't eaten them as much.... More

Description
We are the place to go for the best BBQ, ribs, chicken and more. What started in a tiny little shack outside Atlanta in McDonough, Georgia has grown to become the model of fast casual BBQ. Founder Shane Thompson quit his neck-tie-wearing corporate job, dusted off his grandfather's secret sauce recipe and along with the support of wife Stacey, made his dream of owning a family BBQ restaurant come true. Join us for lunch, dinner or catering for your next special event. Shane's grandfather, Big Dad, told him, "Do what you love, and do it better than anyone else." The result? Taste for yourself in Shane's Rib Shacks across America...
