Loved the building.

Pretty good value and pretty good bbq chicken. I didn't try the actual bbq so I cannot comment on that but those with me seemed to be satisfied, though not overly-impressed.

This was my 2nd time going to the location on HWY 155. It is about two miles from my house. It is always busy when I go by it and wanted to give them another chance. The best thing to come out of there was the peach cobler. My wife raved about it. I did not try it, I did... More

I visit this location a few times when I'm passing by 155 to get to Stockbridge. The food and atmosphere is great. The staff is friendly and when I call in my order, it's always ready when I arrive! Talk about prompt service!

I've eaten at the Hwy 155 original site before, but I prefer the Hwy 81 site. Recent updates helped the interior dining area. The staff is always polite and attentive to customer needs. The food is consistently good, though not gourmet BBQ. I recommend the fried okra...it's some of the best that's not homemade.

Had the combo, food was barely warm, no flavor! The pulled pork was tasteless, And very finely shredded, even the okra was bad, ....undercooked. My wife had the pork salad, no flavor and the lettuce was partially frozen. In Georgia, and bad ribs.......never again!

Shane's delivers on the product they serve but the atmosphere and service is just not great. They stand behind the counter and take your order and never check on the guests. If you don't care about that and just want some pretty good and value priced BBQ this is your place...

Did my 50th birthday dinners @ the original Shane's. Full rack of Ribs an 2 sides are enough to share. And I am a BIG eater. I'm from Florida and was standing in an Nascar autograph line and asked everyone around me where's the best BBQ in Atlanta. 9 out of 10 said Shane's Rib Shack. And it did not... More

BBQ is very average. I understand they are trying to keep the original shack going but it could really use an overhaul. Unfortunate that this place isn't better since its the closest BBQ to me but its the last place I think of when I want BBQ.
