This was my first visit to a Shane's. Overall I was disappointed. I got the pick two with the ribs and pulled pork. My sides were the baked beans and potato salad. The sides were the highlight of the meal. The BBQ was just ok, but being from central NC, I have had a LOT of BBQ and this was... More

This was a great place to pick up dinner and bring back to the hotel. Got a pulled pork sandwich and pot. salad for two people for under $15.00. Quality was very good for "take out"

Hoping for a quick dinner I ignored reviews and went to this place. The staff were disinterested, everything was sticky:the table, the salt and pepper, the catsup, the burger was pretty good but hastily put together, the bun in no way stood up to the burger: big, squishy, soft, white bun, the french fries were cold . Never again

Stopped in and enjoyed a delicious bbq plate. I had the 2 meat plate, including baby back ribs, chicken wings, fried okra, and brunswick stew. All was very good as the full house of customers would attest to. Service was excellent, friendly and timely. I will be back.

Order here to go all the time , decided to eat in and we pick a very bad time. Service was horrible and all the employees were out front having a grande time. Waited 20 minutes on our dinner. So not like Shanes

Obviously the locals love this place. Arrived approx 12 noon on a Friday and was quite busy. Orders taken at the counter, and delivered one-by-one to the table. Four us ate, wings first (wait), pork sandwich (wait), hamburger (wait), final hamburger. Food was pretty decent.

The smoked wings are awesome! I love them. My wife loves them. My kids love them. Very casual, I dine here weekly. I like the fries as well. The two meat plate is a good deal and a great way to try something new. Service rocks!

1. Strip mall joint 2. Informal atmosphere 3. Ribs are finger-lickin' good 4. Family place-no alcohol served 5. Just basic, but very good southern style bbq on the bone or shredded available with different sauces. 6. Inexpensive and very casual 7. One of the best bbq joints I've eaten at!

Wife and I eat here while on a one night stay for a Spartan race. Food was served up quick and hot. Place is a little small so it was somewhat noisy. They do not serve beer or wine at this location. Had the bbq plate and the boneless wings. Bbq is pretty good for what I consider fast food.... More
