While on a road trip, W. Shanks was very close to my hotel. It's a tiny shop, but makes up for it in taste. We ordered a three meat combo: brisket, ribs, and pulled pork. Excellent quality, good portions, and overall wonderful taste. They have...More

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.

This is a hidden BBQ shop in Morgantown. It was very good. The mac and cheese was to die for. The meat was so good. I highly recommend this place.

The food is worth the trip. To top it off it is locally owned and operated. The brisket was the best

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.
