The pulled turkey was a great surprise It was tender & juicy. Quick service. I will definitely try again. Like most BBQ in this area the sides aren't very exciting It is all about the meat. We also got ribs & pulled pork. The ribs...More

Good Barbecue nachos. Good Pulled Pork potatoes. They have really good sauces. Worth a try but their pulled pork is best.

Lawler’s BBQ is great every time. My wife and I really enjoyed the brown bag lunch special that they have on Tuesdays. The Mac and cheese is also great.

LawLers Barbeque is amazing! You can dine inside or go through their drive-thru. (Don't be mistaken! This is not a fast food restaurant!) I highly recommend LawLers Barbeque!

In 1978, in a little Tennessee town called Pulaski, two brothers from Athens, Alabama decided to go in the barbecue business. Many years and many pounds of pork later, Phillip and Jerry… (One’s older…one’s smarter)…have created quite a reputation. Through hard work, thick smoke, the help of good people…and by the grace of God, a legend was born! LawLers, the most flavorful, highest-quality barbecue in all of North Alabama and Southern Tennessee. Using old-fashioned recipes and time honored traditions, we still smoke barbecue real slow with love in Alabama. This insures the highest quality and consistency so that every customer at every location gets the same tasty, tender, juicy barbecue. We have developed systems and procedures that allow us to offer you almost fast food speed of service…yet everything is made as you order! We always have plenty…so if you need a big order at the last minute…we have you covered!
