Great smokey tender brisket. I also had the spicy sausage which was equally great. Got a lot of food so took enough home for lunch the next day. They certainly deserve their place in the Top 50.

Great tasting lean brisket and pork ribs - the warm bbq sauce adds to the great flavor. Beans are delicious too!

Being from the Northeast, I just love trying out different TX BBQ joints. BBQ shak doesn't disappoint. It's sorta along the highway, squat little building, it was hot outside (of course), pile of chopped wood around back. Walk in the door and it feels old,...More

My Wife and I were in a bind, driving to visit friends and arriving about midday meant bringing some food to offer for lunch. We'd noticed "The BBQ Shak", a little roadside building on previous visits and decided to give it a try. So from...More
