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. Highly recommend this restaurant.

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.

Driving through town we saw this location on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a shot. I can tell you that we are glad that we did. The food was fresh and the taste was amazing. The turkey platter is a must try. I wish we had a location in Florida - I would be a weekly visitor. The... More

We just happened to see this place while driving from our hotel. Very friendly staff and very good food. Great BBQ and sides. Not one complaint. We also had a toddler and the booths were very roomy.

One of the best BBQ places in town, friendly servers, excellent food and conveniently located. You can indulged in barbecue Ribs, Chicken, Brisket and Sausage. Any of these items have three basic ingredients; (smoke, meat and time". Their Cheese Biscuits are excellent. If you're hungry and enjoy Bar-B-Q, this is the place to stop and enjoy.

After waiting for our order to come out for over 25 minutes we were informed they were out of potatoes and could make our son's BBQ potato. Our daughter in law's grill cheese was cold and the toast... More

Had dinner here since it was close to hotel. Service was good but the food was just average. It wasn't bad but wasn't over the top good either. I would come back if in the area looking for BBQ but wouldn't make a special stop for it.
