Stopped for a quick lunch after what might have been a busy lunch. One person at counter taking orders and most tables cluttered and no bussed.
Had brisket sandwiches and pretty good but the place is very industrial.
We came away pretty disappointed.
Lots of sticky BBQ sauce squeeze bottles. Need some wiping!

This place is not fancy, but the food is quite good. My husband and I split the 3 meat plate, which had brisket, pull pork and smoked chicken. The chicken was a little dry, but th pork and brisket were both delicious. The brisket was juicy and it fell apart. We chose beans and mac-n-cheese for our sides. The mac-n-chees wase not as creamy as I would have liked. The beans were good. We wish we had tried the corn bread. The sauces we tried were all very tasty.

A smaller dining area, but a great brisket. I ordered the brisket meal with cornbread and mac & cheese. Cornbread was very good. Not a big fan of their mac & cheese. It was ok though. The brisket could have been hotter. It was served just warm. The flavor was fantastic, and the serving size was just right. There is a wide variety of sauces, which I found the Memphis to my liking.
If you're in the area, don't pass this place up!
This is good BBQ!

Rack shack BBQ is so good. We have ordered food for parties a few times and it never disappoints. The pulled pork and brisket are so good. They smoke it for 14 hours. It is real BBQ with all of the traditional sides offered. They have a number of BBQ sauces for everyone's tastes. The dining room is small, we prefer to pick it up and take it home.

Their hobo is their flagship staple - a baked potato on steroids - and it's a must-try if you're a foodie.

Their meats are legit. Brisket, pork, chicken all good! Yummy sides and delicious house-made sauces.

This place will kill your bbq hunger pangs with meaty goodness.
