Great place to stop, take a break and eat

We were on our way from Mobile to see family in Hamilton and needed to take a break and get a bite to eat. No home football game sp we figured we would be good. It's one of those places you order at the counter and pick it up and sit or carry it out. Hubby had a pulled pork... read more

There is reason that they are one of the top barbecue restaurants in the state. The ribs and smoked wings are legendary. Stay away from their crawfish (prepackaged and frozen) and some of their sides are not very good. But the quality of their barbecue is top notch.

Probably some of the best wings I have ever had. Not your usual wings, but smoked and delicious. They have a complete smoked meat menu. Some say the ribs are unbeatable. Maybe next time.

These ribs fall off the bone and have the best flavor of any I've ever tasted! The BEST! Very casual atmosphere - only one large table for everyone to share and a bar around the wall but everyone is always nice. Carry out is also available.

These are some of the best barbecue ribs I have ever eaten. If you are in Fayette, Al you have to try the ribs and smoked wings. It will be well worth the trip.

This could very well be the best mom & pop local BBQ joint in which I have ever eaten, and I have been to quite a few. Sam's menu shows that he does ribs, BBQ, wings, and chicken. He also lists fish and crawfish, which are the only items I haven't tried. I would have made a photo of the... More

Now, I know some have their likes and dislikes about places. So you have decide how you like this place. For me, I rather eat some where else. BBQ sauce is not my cup of tea. Not really much about the cole slaw too. I would like to have my meal more warmer than what we had. Service wasn't that... More

The smoked wings and ribs are cooked to perfection. You will eat so much you will hurt yourself. The adds are delicious and served with fresh bread. Southern cuisine at the finest. The looks from outside will make you say are you sure but once you taste the food you will smack yourself for not trying sooner. The restaurant is... More
