We went here based on a recommendation from a friend who likes their hash/brunswick stew. The place looks run down and the inside is pretty spartan w/ styrofoam cups, plastic forks and wooden bench seating. Being from Texas, I had to try the brisket sandwich...should...More

Having a taste for a barbeque lunch, I saw this place and stopped in. The service was friendly and good. The beef brisket sandwich was delicious. The Brunswick stew was the best I have ever had, and the banana pudding was very good.

Good food and service. We had pork sandwiches with chips and slaw and stew( best ever). My husband loved the banana pudding. This was lunch quick and easy. Will be returning to try the ribs and chicken.

We have visited the BarbequCUe Shack many times over the past ten years. The service is always fast and friendly. While there are many good choices on the menu, our favorite is the chopped BBQ pork sandwich. The meat is incredibly lean and well-smoked. Customers...More
