“Still awesome”
Review of Shane's Rib Shack

Shane's Rib Shack
Ranked #5 of 38 Restaurants in Pace
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...

“Great BarBQ”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We've been several times, and not only is it reasonable, it's good food! The Brisket is far out! so's the chicken salad sandwich, one of the best chicken salad sandwiches ever! Most meals are $8.00 to !0.00 each!

“Now that they have been open for awhile. ”
Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

When Shane ' s first opened in late spring of '13 they were packed, lines almost out the door all the time. I'm not sure how any new restaurant could handle that type of volume day after day right at startup but I think they did a good job at it although parking and seating were a problem then they are not now that things have calmed down.

We're local and Shane ' s has become a welcome addition to Milton/Pace. The BBQ is good, I particularly favor the Virginia Style Pulled Pork sandwich, it's large, under $7 and comes with coleslaw on top...YUM! They are for sure friendly and the place is clean and we'll maintained. When entering Shane ' s you get in line to order your food at the counter, pay for it then they give you a table stand with a number (like a little flag that rests on the table) You choose a table get your drinks from the fountain and sit down. In a short time your food is delivered to your table. Take - out and catering are also offered. Some here say it's pricey, sure I wish my favorite sandwich was cheaper but I think it's priced just right for the size and quality.

Give Shane ' s a try if you like real BBQ I think you're in for a treat.

“Great BBQ outside of Kansas City”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Being from KC, we know good bbq....while Shane's is not KC style, it is very good southern style bbq....more smokey and a vinegar based sauce vs rubs and sweeter sauce in KC. The BuffQ chicken sandwich is what i am addicted to. Huge potion and very good...they have awesome wings too! Highly recommend.

“We liked it!”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

This was our first trip to Shane's! I had a Buff Q Chicken sandwich and okra! Both were good and a generous portion! My wife had a BBQ pork sandwich and baked beans! She said both were delicious! The parking lot has been packed every time we passed by there so we decided to try it! We will definitely make a return visit! It is not fancy but it was clean, the food good and reasonably priced!
