Service was friendly and quick. The place is popular with locals. I ordered the beef but should have probably stuck to the pork as it was their specialty. Others in our party had the pork and enjoyed it. The fried okra was fantastic but the baked beans were just okay.

Sat there today on Friday for 10 minutes with just three cars ahead and decided to drive off and never even... More

We got a smoked turkey breast for Thanksgiving from this place. It was busy and seemed very popular. The turkey was fine. I thought it didn't have much of a smoked taste, but people seemed to like it.

While in Dothan for a recent visit, I stopped by the Shack, not having been there in many years. Their BBQ & sides are outstanding! I had the rubbed ribs, pulled pork, and sides. You know, ribs are really, really good when you don't want to put any sauce on them to change that special smoked flavor. I put The... More

It's the first time I ever ate a boiled peanut, but the doctors at the College of Osteopathic Medicine were right…the BBQ is great. With 9 sauces at each table to choose from, and a smoky slab of ribs or pork to put it on, you'll be happy you stopped at the shack. No need to dress fancy here…when I... More

Recommended by a friend. Drove about 15 miles to locate it and brought up the site on Tripadvisor and looking at the phto of the building thought it would most likely be pretty good since it looked like a hole in the wall. Ordered the dry rub ribs with slaw and potato salad for sides and an order of fried... More

They have a variety of sauces and i commend them for that. There's a sauce for everyone. The BBQ... More

This establishment is quite small but the BBQ is excellent. We ordered ribs and were not disappointed. They were quite moist & tender. The wait staff were so friendly we felt right at home! Would definitely recommend this place to our friends!
