I've been eating here for my entire life so my opinion my be skewed. This is not a place I would seek out if I were making a short trip, but if you get the chance get the pork plate. This is good, fattening, messy BBQ that I absolutely love

Another local bar-b-que place. There are other "Southern Bar-b-que" locations as this is small franchised chain with each one being individually owned. The food at each one is not the exact same quality. This review is only about the one on Cleveland Avenue in "North" Florence (7 Points area), Alabama. They serve pork sandwiches, hot dogs, and a "pork plate"... More

Nice restaurant. A little tricky to find. Staff is friendly. Very good pulled pork barbecue.Very rustic atmosphere, but clean. Back room for private parties

I eat 2 jumbo BBQ sandwiches at least a few times per week at the Avalon Ave location. They've always been excellent for the past 25 years. I also enjoy the family pack or a smoked chicken for dinner.
