Every time we go to Shane's, we are always very happy with our food! We know that Shane's is a chain with many locations across several states, but because it came from humble beginnings in Georgia, it still seems like a locally owned mom-and-pop barbecue joint. We visited for lunch last week, where we both got the BBQ pork plate,... More

First time here after a recommendation from a friend. There was nothing bad about what we had. It just wasn't as good as some other similar eateries in the area. We tried the chopped barbecue chicken, ribs and chicken tenders. The BBQ chicken was dry but the sauce helped with that. The ribs were flavorful and falling off the bone... More

Good atmosphere and food. Restaurant was clean and condiments were well stocked. Food was a little expensive for a quick lunch stop. Tables were good size and easily accommodate a larger lunch group.

Whenever I'm near Triangle Towne Center, I head over to Shane's to eat. I really enjoy their food. I didn't give Excellent score because the interior is somewhat cold feeling. I want to eat and get out. But the barbecue is very good so I stay!

Tried it for first time. I really enjoyed it. Tried rack of ribs, cowboy burger, beans, mac and cheese, fries, hush puppies, wings, and even peach cobbler. Now, we did not finish everything, but we did try it all. I was very impressed with how good and fresh everything tasted. The only thing not impressed with was fries, but all... More

The sauce is absolutely succulent and you choose whichever part you desire. Now the sides are awesome - cornbread, fries, oh wait... leave a ton of room for the Cobbler!!! Now be certain to wash it all down with my favorite Peach Sweet Tea. Yessssss, so good! I only wish the portions were larger, but if you can afford it,... More
