I've never been to a Shanes' before and I will compare this with other chains- I'm a big fan of Mission, and can tolerate Dickeys', less so Famous Daves. This visit I'd say fell within the top three. menu is a bit confusing so we took a moment to consider. We also wanted to try a few items so we... More

We tried this place for the first time and really liked it....Its fast food, but the BBQ was really pretty good AND there was a couple of BBQ sauce choices. AND, there was outdoor seating--perfect for a fall day!

Got a half-pound of BBQ pork and a side of fried okra. Pretty good, and a good value. Good menu. Nice place to eat in, but I got takeout. Part of a chain, but it didn't feel that way.

Should have known when I walked in and the place was empty. I ordered ribs,mac and cheese, and fries. Ribs are so dried out they crunch when you bite into them. No pit smoke flavor at all. Mac and cheese tastes ok...like velveta melted over macaroni. Clean and well maintained.

I'm a local and was fairly excited when Shane's opened in Clifton Park a few years ago. I'm mostly been during the lunch hour on weekdays but have visited during dinner hour once or twice since they opened. I've been to lunch there about 8-10 times, mostly because I eat out a lot and get sick of the other places... More

All of the food choices are terrific. There is plenty of parking. The restaurant never seems crowded. This is the only barbecue place left in the area.

We stopped in for a meal and we waited about 40 mins for the food to come, just as we were going to ask for our money back, the food arrived. The help was doing their best but there was no management on site. We expressed our exp to thrie website and never got a response.

Good BBQ is not that difficult but excellent Q takes ingredients of high quality and a level of experience most could never even approach. This place has somehow managed to take the most basic styles of BBQ and screwed them up in unimaginable ways. Dinner was ordered to go, one pound each of chopped chicken and brisket and a half...

We have been to Shane's many times over the years and have especially appreciated the gluten free menu option for one of our elder family members. HOWEVER, yesterday, we had a bad experience. Problems: 1. Inexperienced cashier and other front reception help. Not sufficiently trained on menu options and couldn't find them on register. Also slow at getting waited on.... More

We go here for the ribs and they never disappoint. They are tender and fall off the bone. Would recommend if you're in the mood for ribs. Can't speak to other dishes as we on,y get the ribs. The sides are tasty too
