Description: The first Shane's Rib Shack in Bay County is now open for business and would be honored to serve you. Shane's Rib Shack is a product of time spent with Shane's grandfather, Big Dad. "Do what you love, and do it better than anyone else," was Big Dad's advice. The result? Taste for yourself in Shane's Rib Shacks across America. Every family has a secret recipe that's handed down from generation to generation. Shane got the recipe for his sauce from "Big Dad", his beloved grandfather. He passed it on to Shane just like he did his sense of integrity and his old fly reel. Shane and Big Dad spent countless hours creating, refining and perfecting the tastes they loved. Shane's BBQ sauce is great on beef, chicken or pork, but watch out, it's gonna get messy! History Established in 2002 It all started in suburban Atlanta in McDonough, Georgia in 2002. They still make great BBQ here six days a week. Shane's big idea grew from this little shack to become the fastest growing BBQ restaurant concept in the nation. Shane's Rib Shack now has approximately 70 locations across America in 14 states. The menu has expanded somewhat since the original days to now include many chicken products as well as enormous salads and burgers.

“It's the sauce”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We went to Shane's Rib Shack several times during our stay in Panama City Beach. If you like a stuff potato this the place to order a stuff potato - but I suggest you ask to have the cheese on the side. Other meals we enjoyed at Shane's - ribs, and shredded pork sandwiches. I like their sauce on the meat,but not on the potato.

“Great value for the price”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

This is one of the best Shane's Rib Shacks I have visited. The owner came around and asked if everything was fine and was very friendly. The food was very tasty and the amount of food was larger than I get in GA. I will definitely return to this restaurant when I get back to FL.

“Love the salad”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

The grilled chicken salad was huge. The greens were fresh and crisp and the chicken had a nice grilled flavor and was not dried out. If it had been served with a nice dinner roll from a bakery it would have been a perfect meal. It came with four triangles of smashed garlic toast that were less than appealing. My husband had the "Big Dad" pulled pork sandwich and enjoyed it and the potato salad. Staff is friendly and efficient. I will be back.

“Great ribs and value for money”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

If you want a well priced hit of meat, Shane's is great. For 12.99 i got a load of pulled pork, some chicken and 1/4 rack of ribs with a load of sides. Food was nice and staff were great. The setting is more akin to a fast food joint, but if you don't mind that then go for it!

“On my list to return”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

After a long day traveling we didn't want to cook and was itching for BBQ. After finding one place closed we decided to give Shane's a try and glad we did.

The place is nice with good decor, clean, a couple of tv's, some items to buy, and outdoor seating. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

I had the sampler with ribs, pork and grilled chicken tenders. I really liked the meatiness of the ribs here and they were tender and tasted very good. The pulled pork was good, like the sweet spicy sauce the best. The chicken had a very good grill taste with minor outer drying, which is always hard to prevent, and a moist interior. This all accompanied by a typical mac and cheese and a good but normal coleslaw.

DaMamma had a half rack of those same good, meaty ribs and didn't use any extra sauce as they didn't need any. She really enjoyed a good example of potato salad and the agreed the coleslaw showed effort to make it taste good.

Putting this place on my list to spend some off budget dinner money.
