The best ribs ever and the most friendly accommodating servers and owner ever, too. Graffiti covered walls, but not crude. Extremely welcoming staff, from the cooks to servers to owner. Wish it was close to home so I could get a fix. They obviously start...More

An old house-not much to look at. Nice people, very small place, BBQ is only dry smoked meat, not BBQ cooked on like good q. Dry smoked meat is NOT BBQ!!!

Lunch rib platter had 3 ribs, only one was good. Pulled meats looked better. Potato salad and cole slaw are very sweet. Just not to my liking. Friendly, local spot. Limited seating.

They actually smoke the meat on site, you can smell it as you drive up. Best Bar b que I have eaten in Mobile. The sides were all very good, and the workers were all very friendly.

If your going, be sure to bring your appetite. The portions are huge and the prices fair. Not the best BBQ I have had but definitely very good and worth a visit. I would come back in a heartbeat. The staff was friendly and attentive....More
