First time family of 5 ordered this last night for the first time, and we were all very impressed! Definitely will recommend and be eating here once a week for the rest of our lives! Thank u for great food! – Kathryn

We used them for catering and bartending at our wedding and they did an amazing job! Barbara was very helpful throughout the whole process and responded very quickly to any questions that we had. All of our guests loved the food and constantly asked who catered. If I could recommend any BBQ place for catering, Shack in the Back would be my answer. They have reasonable prices, great customer service, and they are one vendor that you will not stress about the day of your wedding.- Ciera

Best BBQ in the city. Nice family atmosphere and the best ribs I have ever had. White Lightnin’ sauce and chips are a must! Great prices, great food and great people. – Joe

This has to be the best bar-b-que in the south. The food is delicious and the price is more than affordable. If you are a fan of “famous” places, you will quickly become a Shack groupie! – Joan
