Having a taste for a barbeque lunch, I saw this place and stopped in. The service was friendly and good. The beef brisket sandwich was delicious. The Brunswick stew was the best I have ever had, and the banana pudding was very good.

This is a traditional southern bbq type place. A plate of chopped pork, two sides, with white bread and a bag of chips. Nice folks, good food, honestly not the best by any stretch but better than average. If you are in the area, sure. Drive from a distance, probably not. You can get a nice meal for a very... More

If you are expecting great Texas or North Carolina style cue, just keep driving by Athens (and perhaps Georgia). In my opinion, this is the best of Athens. The Brunswick stew is fantastic and the pulled pork is reasonably good. The ribs and chicken are passable. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and they finally take credit cards. Open only Thursday through... More

Good food and service. We had pork sandwiches with chips and slaw and stew( best ever). My husband loved the banana pudding. This was lunch quick and easy. Will be returning to try the ribs and chicken.

Purchased 1.5 lbs of BBQ ribs to go and was very pleased with the flavor. The staff was very friendly.

My husband and I love eating at the BBQ Shack. Not only is their BBQ great, but their stew is the best around, hands down. We live in Hoschton, which is a good 30 min. drive from Athens, but it's worth it for the BBQ!

We have visited the BarbequCUe Shack many times over the past ten years. The service is always fast and friendly. While there are many good choices on the menu, our favorite is the chopped BBQ pork sandwich. The meat is incredibly lean and well-smoked. Customers can add their own choice of several sauces. The banana pudding is freshly made daily... More
