Barbeque Time

Shakedown BBQ is a little out-of-the way dive in Grantville, PA. Hidden between 1-81 and the Alleghanys, you will find tasty, tender, fall of the bone, BBQ. Their menu has brisket, pulled pork, smoked sausage, smoked turkey, and wings. Their sides are seasoned fries, baked beans creamy mac and cheese, and coleslaw.

If you can’t decide what tasty choice of meat you want, try the sampler. The sampler consists of three meats of your choice and two sides. Wings come bathed in a creamy jalapeño sauce; definitely not for those whose taste buds can’t handle spicy, but not spicy enough to make you sweat.

Shakedown is a bit on the pricey side, but portions are big. Before you go, remember that seating options are limited. It is recommended to go on a nice day so outside seating is an option for your visit. Also, their BBQ only lasts so long, so when it is gone, it is gone; plan to go early so you can get what you want.
