We had a small group try out The Brick Pit on a recommendation - we were not disappointed! The food was excellent. Great pulled pork, potato salad, beans! Banana pudding is excellent. Fun atmosphere - we will be back next time we are in town!

Not the best tasting BBQ in Mobile and quite expensive for what you get. Nice location near USA campus for students and anyone visiting.

We got a single combo lunch plate with ribs and pulled pork. That was enough for 2 or more. Great slow cooked meat, delicious BBQ sauce. All the good things about a BBQ joint! And the staff and owner are super friendly. Can't wait to...More

I'm not sure, but I think they do have a kids menu or section on the main menu. I don't have small children, so didn't pay attention to that.
