Great bar be que at an affordable price!

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.

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!!
