“One of the best around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2011

My husband and I love eating at the BBQ Shack. Not only is their BBQ great, but their stew is the best around, hands down. We live in Hoschton, which is a good 30 min. drive from Athens, but it's worth it for the BBQ!

“Excellent Bar-B-Q”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2010

I went there on a Thursday for lunch and had not been there in a while. Had a BBQ plate and tea which came out to 9.99. The food was execellent and the waitresses were even better. Its not a cheap lunch but excellent food and service. Heads up they do not take credit cards this is a cash only establishment.

“The Barbeque Shack has the best chopped pork and banana pudding in Athens.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2010

We have visited the BarbequCUe Shack many times over the past ten years. The service is always fast and friendly. While there are many good choices on the menu, our favorite is the chopped BBQ pork sandwich. The meat is incredibly lean and well-smoked. Customers can add their own choice of several sauces. The banana pudding is freshly made daily from scratch, including the custard, and is topped with thick meringue. If you're lucky, you might arrive when a fresh pudding has just been pulled from the oven and you can eat it while it's still warm! The restaurant is nothing fancy -- a basic barbeque restaurant -- but is always spotlessly clean. Open Thursday - Saturday.
