Must go on Oxtail Mondays!!

Can't say enough about how wonderful the food is here. Very small menu/selection but all done to perfection. We've been twice. The oxtail isn't to be missed (though I believe it's only served on Mondays) Best greens I've ever eaten! And when we were there on day before Thanksgiving we decided that... read more

Shannon's is touted as soul food and that is an apt description. The food is reasonably price while servings are generous. All items are ready for you to pick and choose. They dish you up, you pay, then sit and eat. This isn't just a dive, but an old dive.... On popular days, the line will snake around your table.... More

Shannon's is an experience, not just a place to eat down home cooking. You place your order at the beginning of a short production table, with choices such as greens, mashed potatoes, yams, cornbread muffins, and short ribs, fried chicken, smothered steak, and ox tail, accompanied by an assortment of soft drinks or tea. I'm not sure just how healthy... More

I learned about Shannon's when I was going to Texas A&M. It cafeteria style, and believe me, you will not leave hungry. Menu usually includes Fried Pork Chops, Beef Tips and Rice, Fried Catfish, etc. The typical southern "soul food" that i have come to love. On week days it will be lined up out the door with blue collar... More
