I can’t think of a better way to thank our loyal guests while, at the same time, celebrating National Barbecue Month.”

In addition, throughout the month of May, Shane will be showing up around Metro Atlanta delivering racks of ribs to unsuspecting folks. Spot him, and you could personally receive free ribs from the man himself.
