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.

I love Whitt's bbq, hands down the best in Decatur. I even really like their cole slaw, and I don't like cole slaw. Great food!!!

I love trying BBQ since it is so different in many regions. I love Whitts and would say it is my favorite. The smokey meat with the vinegar based cole slaw is fantastic. It is inexpensive and filling. I like the regular sauce, but my husband prefers the hot.

The BBQ is awesome here!!! Everything is seasoned perfectly and the meat is always tender. The prices are reasonable and the service is great. DO NOT leave the Decatur area without trying their BBQ!!!

Turkey sandwich is great but the regular pork sandwich is terrific. Comes with lots of juicy slaw. Slaw has a strong vinegary hint to it but perfect for their tasty BBQ. Pair up with chips and sweet tea! Now we're talking!!

There is no BBQ like the BBQ in Decatur, Alabama and Whitts is tops in Decatur. Lunch boxes are a great deal too.
