“My absolute favorite place for Home Style cooking”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

I learned about Shannon's when I was going to Texas A&M. It cafeteria style, and believe me, you will not leave hungry. Menu usually includes Fried Pork Chops, Beef Tips and Rice, Fried Catfish, etc. The typical southern "soul food" that i have come to love. On week days it will be lined up out the door with blue collar workers from around the Bryan area. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food makes up for it. If you have a chance, you've got to stop. I think its around 10 bucks plus a drink. Well worth it.
