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!!

Great food, nice people. Love the box meal and the brunswick stew is so, so good. Not a sit down and eat place, strictly to go.

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

Actually got a quart of barbecue and some slaw to go. Seems like every town in the South has several "famous" barbecue restaurants. Each one's sauce is different. I'm very picky about the taste of barbecue sauce. I happen to like Whitts better than most others.

My fave BBQ in the TN Valley. Love the BBQ turkey. Pork is great too. Grab and go for a fast and filling lunch. Or call for a big party. They've catered several events for us and are easy to work with, reasonable prices and lots of delicious food.

Great food, love the ribs and the sauce. Combo plates are really good. Price is very good! This a drive thru but you will always see cars lined up to order their food.
