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.

I have lived across the country, no one does a barbecue sandwich like Whitt's. It's consistent and delicious. I frequent the one on Elms Street in Athens and the one and Forrest in Athens. I have heard some of the other locations are not as good. Excellent food and lightning fast service.

Have had takeout from Whitt's many times over the years and am quite pleased with their bbq pork. It has a certain taste and unique tenderness associated with it. Not a fan of their ribs or chicken though. Just stick with bbq pulled pork and you won't be disappointed.

I love southern "BBQ" which is really smoked pork....and nowadays, chicken, turkey, ribs, and brisket. I like Whitt's much more than the others around because it uses more vinegar when smoking, so it is moister. Great white sauce. For those who don't know what that is: mixture of mayo, vinegar, black pepper......yummy!

This is my favorite barbecue sandwich of all time. It is always consistent. The stuffed potatoes are always good. Pork is my favorite here, but I also like the turkey.
