  • 1/4 slab 1/4 chicken and rum beans. Can't go wrong.
  • The mac and cheese is amazing
  • 1/4 ribs + 1/4 chicken + New Brunswick Stew + Macaroni and Cheese = One phenomenal meal. I kicked the plate clean, went back to the register and got pecan pie. A meal never to forget. Ever.
  • Some of the citys most tender ribs are paired with live music every night.
  • This place quite literly is a shack, so if that's not your thing look elsewhere. Order meal in front with woman whith the missing teeth. Maybe best BBQ in Atlanta but that's not saying much.
  • Its call the "Rib Shack" for a reason. The meat falls off the bone like it should with any good bbq. Try the rum baked beans and the mac-n-cheese. Live blues nightly.
  • I'm always skeptical any place with lots of hype but this was the real deal. I wasn't even hungry and went back for a second half slab after a 1/4 combo. Sweet potato pie was awesome!
  • Pulled pork BBQ sandwich is awesome, but you may want to get two... they are kinda small.
  • The Combo (1/4 ribs, 1/4 chicken) is a good choice for takeout. But make sure you get plenty of napkins!
  • Get the mac-n-cheese!
  • The ribs melt in your mouth, the sauce is perfect, and the rum baked beans are stupid!!!

  • Bar none..the best bbq in all of Atlanta. Those ribs are art!!!!! Rum baked beans are heaven.
