Look this is somewhat fast food barbecue but it is awesome. The price is right and food is great. The barbecue sauce, ribs, baked beans, and coleslaw are awesome. Great place for a solid and affordable meal.

Glad this place closed, the food sucks: dry, sauce less, bland, you name it. Got food poisoning on my first visit, never returned since.

This Shane's, unlike all the other local Shane's, closed down a few months ago. Just goes to show, you can't live off reputation. You still have to serve food warm, you still have to clean the place and you can't have workers watching tv during their shifts. good riddance.

The food here is very average. I feel like I have had this a million times at every average rib shack and BBQ place and I HATE the way they pack your to-go food. They just slap some pulled pork onto a piece of paper and it honestly looks like dog food when you open it to eat it. PRESENTATION... More

We (4 adults, 3 teens) had intended to eat at Jason's Deli (down the road) prior to leaving town by air. Unfortunately, because it was New Years Day, Jason's was closed. We decided to give Shane's a try, because all of us like barbeque. Bad choice. We had a variety of dishes, but no one enjoyed any of them. (Fries... More

I am a big guy and I usually finish my meals but I was stuffed and couldn't finish the chicken fingers I had 6. They are super meaty and the sauces here are great too!

Had heard good things about Shane's so decided to give it try. Should have been tipped off by only 2 tables occupied at diner hour. Never had barbequed ribs with absolutely no barbeque sauce. Meat was tough and dry. Not even close to "falling off the bones". Extra sauce on the side was watery and sour - I prefer sweet.... More

I tried this place out once and will never go back again. The food was not fresh and the meat was dried out. I rarely eat BBQ but my boyfriend loves it. This ruined it for me.

#Bocaraton Never heard of this chain prior to exiting on Glades road in Boca. Pleasantly surprised. My wife and son truly enjoyed their Beef Briscuit, and I did well ordering several vegetarian, albeit massively carb heavy sides. Staff was very friendly and the restaurant was clean. Pricing was O.K. but not horrific. In the end, if I see one of... More

Two years ago, we were regulars at this Shane's, going once a week because the food was so good: it honestly was some of the best BBQ we had ever had. The food was aways hot, the manager was so nice (haven't seen her in awhile ...) and the place was clean. Since then, everything has gradually plummeted. We have... More
