The “Original” Shack has been feeding families since 2002!


McDonough, GA (April 12, 2019) The “Original” Shack, located on 2136 Highway 155 North, was founded by Shane Thompson and his wife, Stacey. In 2002, Shane left his corporate job, tossed his briefcase and tie to the side, andelected to pursue his passion for barbecue.  Shane dusted off his grandfather's secret BBQ sauce recipe, and Shane’s Rib Shack was born!


This year, The “Original” Shack celebrates its 17th Anniversary! Shane, Stacey and the Shack Crew would like to invite YOU and your family to help them celebrate this ‘super’ exciting time! Tuesday, April 23rd and Wednesday, April 24th from 4:00PM to 8:00PM, you’re invited to visit The “Original” Shack to partake in the celebration.  To go along with the theme, 17 Super Years of Great BBQ, Kids EAT FREE* when they come dressed as their favorite superhero! 


Your family can also expect a bungee trampoline, face painting, prize wheel, cotton candy, a cake walk, and raffle prizes galore! Raffle Prizes include: Zoo & Aquarium Tickets, a Popcorn Maker, Weber Mountain Smokers, Corn Hole Boards, an ILIFE Pro Robotic Vacuum & MORE!


Shane believes the real secret behind great BBQ is a sense of community.  The brand looks forward to commemorating this special milestone with Shaniacs, loyal customers, neighbors, family and friends.
