Had lunch platter and husband had pulled pork sandwich. He said sandwich was ok, but mine was not. Ribs were extremely dry and lacked any smoky flavor. The sauces available were bland. The potato salad was inedible (maybe it was old??) The baked beans were ok, very sweet due to lots of brown sugar. Would not return.

Every time we go, we get the sampler plate. It's enough for two people. I always get their fried okra....it's AWESOME and always tastes fresh. Love their selection of bbq sauces, their original is my favorite. Inexpensive and good....can't beat that!

Shane's is set up like a fast food restaurant, with a menu limited of slow-cooked barbecue and ribs, and comfort food side dishes. The staff were friendly and brought the food to our table. The room was clean. Portions were ample and all the food we had was very good: pork barbecue and half slab of ribs; sides of cole... More

I ordered a two meat plate (ribs and hot bbq tenders) with fries and macaroni as well as a Peach Tea. I was pleased because the food was freshly made, came out in a decent amount of time, the fried food still had a crunch to it (like it is supposed to), and was delicious. Although the price was more... More

I had the rib and pork platter. Portions were good but it tasted as if they'd just passed the pulled pork and rib meat through a smoke filled room. I've eaten a lot of barbecue in my time, I've had excellent well smoked pork and I've had barbecue that's been 90% cooked in the oven and then put in a... More

I ordered the sampler Ribs were dry and tasted like they were at least 4 days old. The pork bbq was tasteless even the bbq sauce didn't help.The chicken tenders were ok but ice cold All the manager did was stare at the customers like we were going to steal something Made me very uncomfortable even heard another patron say...

Stopped here on a whim and we were very impressed. I ordered the chicken salad and my friend ordered BBQ. It was great. We will definitely be back again.

My wife and two teenaged daughters ate lunch at this place to try something new. We all ordered the pork barbecue sandwich and fries and the bill was around $40. The barbecue was pretty good and the sauce was tasty. The facility was clean and we were some of the first customers of the day. We had a good enough... More

I got a discount code this morning from the "plum app" for any shanes burger and fries 6.99. I had never had a Shane's burger before... I ended up going big with the "Shaniac burger". Folks this sandwich is ridiculously huge.... so it's a huge thick and oh-so-juicy burger (with amazing flavor) topped with pulled pork and Cole slaw (like... More
