“Number One ~ Not a Doubt About It”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

I had heard many raving compliments on this place and had an opportunity to stop by just at opening time. Saraland has got a rare gem hidden here. Among their many items, were some excellent sweet sauce wet ribs offered up with several amazing Southern comfort side items. This is a "gotta get it" kind of place. Completely down home and absolutely delicious.

“Home cooked food!”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

They talked me into getting the buffet instead of a slab of ribs. That was a great decision. Fresh food on the buffet, ribs included, Greens, sweet potatoes, fried chicken, sausage. All of it was great. Fresh cut watermelon for dessert. Friendly service, my tea was never more than an inch below the rim. Wish they were open on Sunday so I could have it again before I leave town.

“Sweet little BBQ joint”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

The good news - generous portions of delicious BBQ.
The bad news - closes at 7pm, so come early!
Don't be fazed by the external appearance of this place. It's what's inside that counts, and you won't be disappointed. They seem to do more take-out than eat-in but we were treated graciously even though we were the only ones at a table. Come hungry and enjoy!

“The South's best BBQ”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

I have enjoyed J Rodgers BBQ for several years now. The recipes have not changed nor has the staff. I appreciate no surprises! The ribs are absolutely amazing. My favorite item has got to be the macaroni & cheese. The vegetables are superb as well. There isn't a single item on the menu that's store bought. The owner also has a bar that she added on behind the restaurant. This has got to be the nicest bar I ever seen. I am a loyal customer who will continue to stay loyal for years to come. You've got to try this place!!
