Lightening fast service. The BBQ sandwich had the perfect amount amount of smoke flavor. The Brunswick stew is the best I have ever had-- super good!

This is a go to place for me in Auburn. The breakfast is the best in town and probably one of my favorite anywhere. The chipped pork sandwich is what I get pretty much every time and it never disappoints. Probably has my favorite brunkswick stew of any BBQ place anywhere.

Best barbecue in AL. Great atmosphere and Mr. Price is always there to greet you with a smile. War Eagle! The Q-Stew is a must.

While the BBQ at this Auburn mainstay is pretty good, the breakfast is phenomenal. It has, for many years, been the place to go if you want a really good, full on breakfast. They have eggs, ham, bacon, pancakes, biscuits, and on and on...LOVE IT.

The Barbecue House is one of those "must-eat-at" places for anyone coming into the Auburn/Opelika area. They are well-known for their great breakfast and their barbecue is fabulous. They also provide great take out services for tailgating or will cater your party or event.

I had the barbecue sub and the sandwich was delicious. I knew this place was going to be good when I saw the woodpile and took a whiff. The service was fast on a Friday afternoon on a gameday weekend. They don't have a LOT of choices but what they do, they do well.

We ordered take out to share with our daughter and her family. We only have an opportunity to get BH BBQ when we are in Auburn occasionally, so it always is a treat to order take out and share it. It was great!!!

When attending Auburn University in the 1980s, I regularly ate at the Barbecue House. Whenever I come back to Auburn, the Barbecue House is the first stop! I have eaten barbecue all over the south, and the Barbecue House is the best I have ever had, by far. On this trip to Auburn to bring my daughter for a college... More

Has heard this was a good breakfast place so tried it. It is a true local university place. Mid week but still crowded. Biscuits and grits were excellent; eggs and sausage were ok but not as hot as I like. Certainly recommend you try this.

Mr. Price and his wonderful staff provided us with excellent service and the food is always good. They helped us cater a wedding shower for almost 100 people and they had everything hot and ready when requested and helped us box and load it into the car. Everyone raved about the food and wanted to know where we got it.... More
