Not the worst, truly far from the best. Pulled pork plate and beef plates ordered, they were NOT bbq'd !! Maybe oven cooked but neither bbq'd.
The sauces both left much to be desired. The slaw, if you can call it slaw, was no more than minced cabbage, no addl ingredients other than maybe a splash of vinegar? The best thing on the plates were the bread, made by some bread co and bought at Sams lol.
Service was interesting....Upon ordering we asked "what is good, what do you recommend"? , she answered " the potato salad is good"...... she was right.... potato salad WAS good.... everything else either not good or blah.
We truly appreciate bbq that is truly bbq'd with sauce on the side.... this is not the place.
Sorry Whitts.... service and product rate no more than a 2 and we wont be stopping back in ;)

LOVE LOVE LOVE Whitts BBQ. The pulled pork is good but it is the sauce that makes this so special. Oh and the slaw... so unique and delicious. Never ever miss an opportunity to go to Whitts BBQ in Athens AL.

Live in the town with famous Gibson bbq but have to say without reservation Whitts BBQ beats theirs every which way to Sunday as we say in the south !!! Absolute must if you love BBQ! Just a reminder though they don't open on Sundays.

Possibly the best bar-b-cue sandwich anywhere. Nothing fancy, fresh white bun, smoked pork, vinegar slaw and a pickle slice. It is very good.
The optional sauce is vinegar and red pepper. The hot variety has extra red pepper and a touch of butter.
A must have when in North Alabama and Tennessee.
