I had a to me combo with ribs and pulled pork and it was very good. The sauce is an interesting Fusion between Carolina vinegar in Kansas City Style.
Mac and cheese was very good as was the Brunswick Stew.
I always felt you could really rate a bbq place by it’s ribs or chicken. In this case I had the ribs and they were off the chain! Smoky yet not dry... I’m not a fan of the “meat fall off the bone” ribs that...More

Thanks for your review! I think you will be equally impressed with the Smoked Half Bird.
The small main seating area is expanded with an air conditioned porch. Authentic barbecue, smoked on site and always served fresh. Plates and sandwiches are good values. Pulled pork is my perennial favorite, and brisket is outstanding, though everything I've had here is excellent. I...More

Are you sure you were at Big Shanty Smokehouse? In the last 10 years I've never heard our Ribs described as "fatty, greasy and hardly any meat". Our Potato Salad is one of our most popular sides and is $1.95 for a 5.5 ounce portion.
