Truly a wonderful place to have lunch. Great service, fast, large portions, very fair prices and not to mention everything was very tasteful!!! This place is a little off the beaten path but, I'll be going back.

We love this place. Very good place to eat BBQ in or to go. We get the salads and the large is big enough for two people. Even take it on the boat!!

Yes its a mom and pop type of restaurant but its well worth the drive. I get a slab of ribs almost weekly. My wife loves their BBQ sauce and pulled pork sandwiches.

Great hole in the wall, locally owned BBQ. Take out and dine in. Extremely friendly owner and staff. Fast service, and high quality food, both desserts and dinner. Can't sing high enough praises. We would go back.

Have eaten at The Shack a couple of times when in the area to attend Nascar races. Everything I have eaten has been good from ribs, to meat, to the sides. Will definitely return when in the area again.

Nothing fancy. Just consistently good bbq and sides. A little out of the way to get there and the lake crowd can sometimes take it over. On the interior of a curve so look thrice before getting on the highway.
