Very good BBQ. Try the chicken or pulled pork tacos. Even better is the chicken and sausage gumbo. You will leave satisfied. No indoor eating areas, but there is covered outdoor eating.

Welcome to Woodburn Shanks, Morgantown's only authentic Pit-Style BBQ. We specialize in hand-made, home-style comfort food. The Beef, Chicken and Pork BBQ made here is slow-smoked with locally sourced hardwood in an Old-fashioned BBQ Pit . No gas, electricity or pellets here. A special blend of Hickory, Cherry and Mesquite is where we get our heat. Our meat is always fresh, and our BBQ Sauces and Spice Rubs are hand-made and were developed right here. Give us a try and you'll see the difference
