The ribs and chicken are awesome. The Brunswick stew is seasoned just right. The servers are friendly and always constantly checking to see if you need anything.

My husband and I were visiting my brother and his girlfriend and they mentioned coming to this restaurant. Looking it up online, I wasn't too impressed, but we ended up settling on it since no one had a better idea. Plus, we were visiting the original shack, so that was worth checking out. We walked up to the small shack... More

Buffalo chicken salad is very good and XL. More than enough for 1 meal. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Good tea. Mac and cheese, BBQ sandwich and baked chicken are ok. Service is quick.

Shane's at this location is mostly takeout and it does a lot of business. We usually order the sampler platter and there is enough food for the two of us. Pulled pork is always moist, chicken strips are hot and fresh, and the ribs are (usually) tender. Great place to order takeout.

I have been going here for 7 years. It's fast, quick and easy bbq. Not great and not bad. Their tenders are always try inside but crispy outside. The bbq meat is good at best and the sides suck. Staff at this Shanes is awesome.

Staff was very friendly. Order was promptly taken and it didn't take long to receive our piping hot food. I ordered the chicken wraps, fries and sweet tea. It was very delicious! I would eat here again :)

I don't know what they use in that stew, but it was horrible. Barely any meat at all! Only traces of pork. The base had a gooey gel substance that was disgusting. In the trash it went. Stay away from the Brunswick Stew!

I've been eating at this particular Shane's for years. The food is great of course... I don't think we will be dining in again until this particular location does something about all the loitering and rowdiness/horseplay that goes on with large groups of teenagers. The most recent (of multiple) events happened tonight (September 17th) is what caused me to write... More
