Great place right next to the motel I stay at. My favorite is the Shack Sampler, which me and my husband always split. It is a mixture of all the meats (tenders, ribs, pulled pork, sides). Have ate here numerous times, and will be back!

Had lunch with a friend today. I had the half bbq chicken with beans and fries. My buddy had the pulled pork and coleslaw. Everything was tasty and this is a great place to grab some quick bbq for lunch or dinner.

My family loves all things BBQ and Shane's was right on the money.Great food, great prices and literally less than 5 minutes from our hotel. The pulled pork platter and the chicken tenders are some of the best around.

Ribs fall off the bone and the price is reasonable. Just a short distance from the center of town. Very handy for guests staying at Best Western.

It was conveniently located next to our hotel - we walked there! The food was delicious and the portions were huge! We were able to bring leftovers home and enjoy later.It was a bit pricey - but we enjoyed it.

Food here was ok but nothing great. I think it is expensive for the food you get.Sides were okay, but again nothing special. There are better BBQ places to eat in Athens.
