About Shane's Rib Shack

Shane's Rib Shack is a true American rib shack, known for its hand-cut baby back ribs, chicken, pork and 10 southern sides to compliment each plate. The original shack was founded in 2002, in rural McDonough, Ga. by Shane Thompson, who started the restaurant with his grandfather's secret BBQ sauce. Since Atlanta-based Raving Brands acquired the concept in 2004, Shane's Rib Shack has grown to become the country's fastest growing fast-casual barbecue concept.
