Surprisingly good lunch

Stopped in with a friend for lunch. He promised it would be good. Quick service, good food and good price. I loved the brisket.

I'm perplexed as to why Whitt's BBQ isn't #1 Absolutely best pulled pork around ! My personal favorite are the oversized sandwiches they offer at many locations ! Enough said !

I always loved Whitts but the new add on to the menu is even better. The grilled corn is excellent along with my pork box lunch!

Nice, clean, friendly, with excellent BBQ (athough that WHITE BBQ sauce ... what's the deal with that?) Fortunately they had others, including my favorite Carolina Style. My pulled pork and my wife's chicken were both excellent, with good sides.

Whitts Barbecue is the best in north Alabama. No other barbecue even comes close to being as good as Whitts.

Whatever Whitt's is doing, their formula is working! Great place to pick up bbq and take home or to work! Tasty sandwiches, great potato salad! Lots of people get box lunches! Not my fav in Decatur but is for a lot of people!

I have never been disappointed at Whitt's! It's super easy to go through the drive thru with the kids! They have the best Brunswick Stew ever.

If you want simple for a quick lunch or a lunch to take to the park this is it. There box lunch is only $6 and you get a lot of great food. It is carry out only.

Sorry it was okay. Did not like coleslaw like too much pickle in it. Bbq pork good. Needed more sauce but pork tender and no fat. Maybe should try something else. But okay not fantastic.

This restaurant is always packed during lunch. Its a walk-in, place your order OR drive thru only but everyday during lunch it is packed out. But well worth the wait.
