Customized Catering Plans Simplify Holiday Meals

Tampa, FL, December 19, 2007 --( Focus on spending time with loved ones this holiday season rather than on spending time in the kitchen. Shane’s Rib Shack is all about family, community and great food. A “true” rib shack that prides itself on mouth-watering Baby Back Ribs and a family secret barbecue sauce, Shane’s Rib Shack will customize menus for parties, meetings or events of any size.

Shane’s is famous for its sauce and everything it touches – baby back ribs, heaping pork sandwiches, chopped barbecue chicken, chicken tenders and chicken wings. Party platters and Shack Packs can fit any catering need. Party platters are suggested for gatherings of ten guests or more. Available in size small or large, the platters can include barbecue ribs, chicken tenders or chicken wings. For family meals or parties of eight or less, check out Shane’s Shack Packs. Shack Packs offer a combination of meats and sides and make deciding what to have at any meal a simple choice.

No true Southern meal would be complete without side items. Shane’s made-from-scratch sides include favorites such as baked beans, macaroni and cheese, coleslaw, collard greens and corn on the cob. Not often seen items such as fried okra and Brunswick stew complete the Southern array of options that are certain to satisfy even the hungriest of appetites.
