Shane's Rib Shack is a true American rib shack, known for its slow-cooked ribs, hand-chopped chicken and pork, and many 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 becoming a franchised restaurant in 2004, Shane's Rib Shack has grown to become the county's model fast-casual barbecue concept.

Magazine 5,000,” as one of the fastest growing, private companies in America.
