Travelin’ foodies will take a short drive for long smoked meat slathered in an array of tangy sauces. Omaha’s Fat BBQ Shack lives up to its name with hearty, hefty meals made fresh-to-order by folks that know what to do with the ‘que.
The Shack is known for a variety of smoked and BBQ’d meats, the most popular (and challenging) menu item being the Shack Attack. When we say “challenging,” we aren’t joking. The Shack Attack is a meal built for battle. It starts with a heaping mound of hand-cut fries loaded (seriously loaded) with nacho cheese, your favorite BBQ meat, house sauce, more cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing, jalapeños and chives.
Meat fans love to sink their teeth into the smoking gun sandwich stuffed with house made sausage and the Shack’s award-winning brisket. Skip the bread and go for the bone with the ribs, slow-cooked for 18 hours and sprayed with a blend of pineapple and apple juices. Good meat requires a strong sidekick, and Shack sides are nothing short of crave-inducing. Mac & cheese made with nine cheeses, meaty baked beans, and crispy-yet-creamy coleslaw.
