“Best pork sandwiches in the flathead! Chicken is also awesome:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

If your looking for a fancy restaunt to take your millionaire cousin from Switzerland, this may or may not be your place. They have plastic utensils and paper plates. But the food is well worth the wait:) don't be fooled by its looks. The staff is always making sure the food is excellent, if its not to your likings they will fix it.

A very friendly staff and the food is great. I recommend everyone to try the loaded smoked potato. It was the best meal we had!

“No order too big!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

There's nothin' like chicken when you're gettin' a hitchin'! We are from Canada and our daughter got married in Whitefish in Oct 2011. We scanned the internet for food ideas for the rehearsal party and decided to try "THE SHAQ". What a pleasant surprise when we picked up our food (125 pieces of chicken). The food was hot, meat was moist and crispy and the pieces where HUGE! Everyone asked where we got this delicious chicken. We stopped in for lunch again this week and found the staff very friendly, place was clean, price was right the food just excellent AGAIN! We'll be back again on our next visit.

“Sunday After Church Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

My husband and I live in the area. We have tried BBQ at the other two locations and agreed that the Shak has the best ribs. They were tender, meaty, very flavorful and not greasy. The servings were more than enough to fill. The employees were attentive and ensured we were happy with our meal. There was fun Cajun music playing in the background and the dining area was clean. This was our second or third visit and it was a little cold last time, about two-three weeks ago. But the heat was on today and it was warm and toasty. I would recommend the Shak to everyone who wants the best BBQ and Southern food in the Valley!
