"We opened the Original Shane's Rib Shack in 2002, in McDonough, GA. As the company grew, we recognized that consumer's eating habits were also evolving, including awareness surrounding celiac disease and gluten-free product offerings," says Shane. "Our ability to offer a gluten-free menu that includes garden fresh salads, flame-grilled chicken tenders and traditional BBQ pork and chicken, enables us to appeal to a broader audience and makes choosing where to eat a little less challenging for families afflicted with celiac disease."
According to Shane, Shane's Rib Shack will never veer from its traditional roots, which will always include signature slow-smoked ribs, hand-chopped pork, and a variety of southern sides. However, the company is proud to offer its customers additional options with its extensive gluten-free menu.
