Shababy's Rib Shack

7900 Bailey Cove Rd SE suite v, Huntsville, AL 35802

Score: 98

They're firing up the barbecue and getting ready for hungry customers.

At Shababy's Rib Shack on Bailey Cove Road in Huntsville, you know the food is fresh. The smoker right outside infuses great flavor into ribs and wings coated in a secret rub.

And what's being cooked up in the kitchen is just as delicious. Add a side of homemade hush puppies with a little jalapeno kick and finish your meal off with a refreshing homemade banana cream pie with a fluffy meringue top.

Enjoy sandwiches salads and homemade barbecue sauce in a comfortable setting.
