Review of Shane's Rib Shack

Shane's Rib Shack
Ranked #20 of 75 Restaurants in Gulf Breeze
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: 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...

Excellent BBQ restaurant. Always clean, great service, and good BBQ. Many selections on the menu. BBQ chicken, pork, and beef. Potatoes, salads, and desserts. A excellent place to go. It's not a chain. A little cheaper by not being on the beach.

Thank Carl W

Having lived in Kansas City, St Louis and Texas... I really enjoy good BBQ. Sauced, rubbed, smoked (no mustard please)... it all has good flavors and nuances. Shane's left me wondering if they even bothered.

While the service was fast and friendly, the spices were weak. The sauce was bland. The meat was dry. The sides were sparse. And they ran out of their promotional burgers early on Friday evening. When that happened, and customers were upset, the order takers apologized, but nothing else was forthcoming to soften the blow,

I came in for ribs. They were very greasy (even for ribs), warm (not hot), and mostly flavorless (save for the grease).

For the price, it was not a good experience. Shane's is not cheap and for my money I would rather go without BBQ than eat at Shane's again.

Just skip this place.

I have eaten at Shane's many times during the last 2 or 3 years. I usually get take-out. I really like the pulled pork and the ribs. My husband also likes the smoked wings. Their Big Daddy b-b-q sandwich is huge and is a very good value. They have good sides and desserts, but I haven't eaten them as much. There are TV's and we watch sports while waiting for our order. Football season is nearing and we will be at Shane's picking up b-b-q.

Good restaurant however quality can be hit-or-miss. Sometimes the barbecued ribs can be dried out if you order take out so make sure you check them first. The pork sandwiches and french fries are good.
