We chose to order take out. We ordered chicken barbecue with coleslaw, potato salad and Texas toast. While we waited (about 5-10 minutes) we perused on one of their walls the interesting history of this particular barbecue joint. The place was clean and friendly. We...More

I think this might be the best wings I’ve ever ate. They smoke them and the taste is unbelievable. We usually order to take out, but they have a nice dining room too! If you want good wings and good service give this a try!More

We are the place to go for the best BBQ, ribs, chicken and more. What started in a tiny little shack outside Atlanta in McDonough, Georgia has grown to become the model of fast casual BBQ. Founder Shane Thompson quit his neck-tie-wearing corporate job, dusted off his grandfather's secret sauce recipe and along with the support of wife Stacey, made his dream of owning a family BBQ restaurant come true. Join us for lunch, dinner or catering for your next special event. Shane's grandfather, Big Dad, told him, "Do what you love, and do it better than anyone else." The result? Taste for yourself in Shane's Rib Shacks across America...
