I have wanted to try this "shack" for a long time. Finally, we ordered a meal for the family there two weeks ago. It was delicious. The ribs were superb. The pork, which was pulled, was fantastic. We liked the potato salad and coleslaw as well. I recommend that you take out. The atmosphere inside is not really conducive to... More

The ribs here are very tender and good. It's kind of a small place so be prepared in case you have to take it to go. The wings were good too. My son had a sandwich and it had lots of pork piled on the bun. Good place to get some BBQ.

The pulled pork sandwich was very good. The amount of pork was plenty for lunch and the BBQ sauce was amazing. The Mac and cheese was bland but since it was just a side it's not a big deal. The BBQ sauce is the key as I think it would go great with anything on their menu.

Great BBQ the smells got me in and worth the stop. I had take out and enjoyed it for two nights. The shack is moving 3 blocks east in a few weeks but I'm sure the BBQ will still be great.

This place delivers on BBQ and value. It is a true BBQ joint as a hole in the wall that it should be. The kitchen is a little slow for BBQ standards but the value is incredible. Get the C dub it's a can't miss.

We followed the Smoking Rib van towing a smoker across the Courtney Campbell and Bay-side bridges all the way to their restaurant on our way home from a 500 mile motorcycle trip yesterday [Sunday the 24th of April 2016]. We were starved. The smoke drew us like a magnet. Along the way we met another Biker who followed us to... More
