The breakfast is really good, but you will have wait! It is a local place, nice quaint place! The BBQ really isn't the best I have had. The reviews are good and an obvious pick from the locals. It was a but disappointing.

The service is very friendly. The portions are decent. However the menu is small and all of the barbecue is vinegar-based. The food was tender but not a lot of flavor., with the exception of the barbecue sauce of course. The bathrooms are outside and they are filthy. So if you're looking for something quick and easy with a lot... More

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.
