Good smokey flavor, with lots of options...and it's all very good! 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! The restaurant is very clean and set up well - great staff, great service, and many different types of BBQ sauce! If you like... More

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

Good restaurant however quality can be hit-or-miss. Sometimes the barbecued ribs can be dried out if you order take out so make sure you check them first. The pork sandwiches and french fries are good.

From what I recall, they only have Pork, chicken & Bergers...NO sausage or Turkey. Sauces were varied & they had sweet potato fries!

My family stopped on the way out of Pensacola Beach. Four of us are for $30, including peach tea and cobbler. We had option of splitting shredded barbecue between chicken and pork. Carolina sauce was our favorite sauce. Potato salad was as good as homemade. Sweet potato fries, fried okra and coleslaw was all delicious. We will return on next... More

We usually get the Big Dad sandwich for take out or order the pulled pork by the pound. It is always great-tender and no fat or gristle. Delicious!!!

Some fall off the bone ribs are always a hit. Lately we've been getting a loaded baked potato which is enough food for 2, loaded with bbq pork or chicken etc. friendly service by young people who have been taught how to help people.

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...
