The BBQ is tasty and an excellent value. They know BBQ. I particularly recommend the brisket and the pulled chicken. Great place if you are in the Kennesaw area.

Family friendly. Fast. Delicious! Ordered the $20 sampler platter since it was our first time. Came with five or six meats and two sides and our kids loved all of it!

Went there for lunch. Quick service. I had the smoked pork sandwich. The sauce came in the side. Deliciousness in a sandwich.

Not sure what happened but this place kind of went down hill, not that it's terrible, just not as good as I remember. It's always a plus to go and get dog bone too

Sorry to hear that you feel our quality has "went downhill". We use the same quality meats and the recipes have not changed in 8 years. I would love to know what you ordered so I can keep a closer eye on the product. Thanks for your business!

Big Shanty is a barbecue joint. It's not fancy. Seating is fine but it's not a place that will impress restaurant designers. Parking is terrible. Where it will impress anyone who knows good cue is in its barbecue. Quite simply the best brisket around. Any meathead can smoke pork butts, but it takes a great deal more skill to consistently produce good brisket. And their sausage, made from rib meat, is outstanding!
