My husband, daughter and I were in town from Georgia visiting family, and my husband's aunt had dinner catered/delivered for us at her house from The BBQ Shack. It was sooooo good!!! The bbq was absolutely delicious, and the fried okra was out of this world good!! The best I've ever had! The chicken fingers were very good also, as... More

Rubbed ribs were excellent with just the right seasoning with a tug of bite through. Sides of mashed potatoes with gravy and okra were a good compliment to ribs. Homemade banana pudding is worth trying. Only downside was the Brunswick stew which tasted bland. All in all a good experience, suggest trying.

Stopped by on our way through town. Since we are not from the south and are unfamiliar with some dishes down here we chose more familiar sides with our ribs and brisket. While we were waiting for our dinner the staff graced us with friendly conversation and complimentary samples of some of their special sides. Green butter beans, cheese grits... More

I have had their food several times since coming to Dothan but always as delivered very. The food is always good, especially the barbecue, and the sides are good too. I need to get there someday to see the place. The price is right.

The place may look like a dump, but the food is not. Went there on a whim & recommendation from a front desk clerk at a local motel. This place is tiny, but the food portions are good. Prices are reasonable based on the food. I went for the ribs, as I use that standard to base my judgements of... More

This restaurant closes at 8:00, We walked in the door at 7:30 and the girl behind the counter was NOT happy. I ordered a shredded chicken sandwich with medium BBQ sauce on the side. My husband ordered a sausage sandwich and French fries . When we were ordering the food the girl at the counter would barely speak. I had... More

The bbq here is excellent!!! I've eaten here many years and have never had any fat in my bbq! The banana pudding is great!!! The only issues would be kind of slow service and prices are a little high. But other than that worth a trip to the shack!!!!

Now, I'm going to be honest. Is this the best bbq I've ever had in my life? No. But, it is a great local option when you want solid and consistent good food. My favorite go-to was the lunch special with pulled pork, cole slaw, and baked beans. The pulled pork has a nice (but not overwhelming) smoke flavor and... More

Service was friendly and quick. The place is popular with locals. I ordered the beef but should have probably stuck to the pork as it was their specialty. Others in our party had the pork and enjoyed it. The fried okra was fantastic but the baked beans were just okay.

I have been a customer for many years but enough is now enough . Prices increase it seems like with every trip and do not ever try and go through the drive thru unless you have a day . Sat there today on Friday for 10 minutes with just three cars ahead and decided to drive off and never even... More
