Shane’s Rib Shack, Marrero, LA Report #6

This is one of the best BBQ joints in the New Orleans metro area.  In fact when I think BBQ this is the first place that comes to mind.

Besides sweet and unsweet tea they also have a peach iced tea that’s delicious, but very sweet.  I like to mix it half and half with unsweetened tea.

Another thing I love about this place was their 5 BBQ sauces.  Original, honey, Carolina vinegar, mustard and spicy.  But I hadn’t been here in a few months, scoured the restaurant for the spicy and mustard and couldn’t find it!  So I asked the waitress about it and she said those two flavors had been discontinued, but available in to-go packs, so she brought some to me.

I noticed smoked wings on the menu which I had never noticed before, so I decided to give them a try.  WOW!  Tender, juicy, and the most intense smoked flavor you could imagine.  Like they were slow smoked over hickory wood for hours.

To me one of the stars of the menu is the Shaniac burger.  Has to be at least an 8 oz pattie, cheese, pulled pork, BBQ sauce and coleslaw.  WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR??  It’s delicious.

Ribs.  Great.  Pulled pork (under the ribs), great.  And the sides are good.  You can tell the mac n cheese didn’t come out of a box but was baked in a pan.  And most BBQ joints give you beans that taste like they just came out of a can.  You might as well be eating pork and beans.  Once you dig into these you find chunks of charred bell pepper and other seasoning to let you know they went the extra mile.  Great place.  Give it a try.

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT:

I returned to Shane’s today because I had a hankering for their wings and the delicious Shaniac Burger.

I was glad to see they had bottles of their BBQ sauces out now. All flavors. You have a choice between smoked, traditional or boneless wings. I decided to try teriyaki sauce on the smoked wings. The sauce was good and the wings had that great smoky flavor, but this time they were kind of dry. The Shaniac burger was still delicious as always and the fries were hot and crisp. Still one of my favorite BBQ places.
