  • Staff is excellent. Super large portions. The pulled pork and BBQ chicken are to die for!!!
  • BBQ shack reminds you of something out of Texas Unfortunately, the BBQ disappointed. The ribs were good, but my brisket sandwich missed the mark. Not one hint of the meat being smoked. ;( 3 stars

  • There is nothing bad on this menu
  • The greatest ribs in the US. Really.
  • Love the ribs and pulled pork.
  • I found the ribs to be disappointing. No smoke flavor. They tasted like oven-baked ribs slathered with a heavy vinegar sauce.
