Lots of soul...phenomenal food.

A simple Google search (because my phone wasn't connecting to trip advisor for some reason!) resulted in dinner at this little gem and I am so glad!

Had a few hours to kill before our flight. I'm not from Birmingham and wanted to try some local bbq. Well, this place is the real deal. We had a pulled pork sandwich, and the shrimp n grits special. The pulled pork was really good - not too heavy and just perfectly smoked, not dry at all. But the shrimp... More

The food was great but I fell it was a bit overpriced for the amount of food I got. I had the cheese grits with fried shrimp. I understand that shrimp may be pricey but grits aren't so I think there should have been more for the amount that I paid. Other than that, everything else was good. The atmosphere... More

I went to this place with favorable anticipation based on the reviews; the reality wound up being a little less than expected. This is a VERY small space; your order is taken at the counter, you are given a number, and then you have to find a table at which to wait for your food to arrive. Well, a bunch... More

We like to grab some takeout and go next door to Avondale Brewing for a cold beer or two ;) The food is good, the service a bit slow, but we are generally not in a hurry when we go.

My advice is to get your food to go or better yet, phone in your order. This place is small, hot and popular which is a tough combination in the summer. Friendly servers and fair prices for good portions. The pulled pork and fried okra were awesome. The greens looked outstanding too. There are a couple picnic tables outside or... More

Great southern food. Love the barbecue. Green tomatoes are out of this world. A little cramped, so get there early. Very economical.
