Service was slower than usual. BBQ potatoes were smaller than in the past. Prices a little higher than other comparable BBQ restaurants.

This is the best bbq I have had since I have been here in Alabama. I paid $12 for huge slab of ribs (1/2 slab), 2 sides and corn muffin. It was melting in my mouth.

The food when we finally got was good. There were several empty tables when we ordered. It took a long time to get our food. We didn't get our cheese biscuits until half way through our meal.

Always eat here every time we go to Gardendale Al. Service is amazing. The hot muffins they bring to table will melt in your mouth. My husband loves their brisket and the stuffed bbq baked potato is more than you can eat in 1 meal....More

Over experience was great overall. Pleasant interior with a very nice waiter. One the items we wanted wasn't on available so they gave us desert on the house. The food was tasty and large portions. You can't go wrong.
