I rarely give out a 5 but as the best BBQ in the 3 city area, Down South deserves all 5 stars.

They have excellent ribs, pull pork and brisket. I like ordering the spicy crackling cornbread sandwich which is 2 corn bread pancakes with jalapeno peppers, a scoop of pulled pork and a scoop of slaw. The horseradish potato salad is world class if you like spicy food. The staff is very friendly... read more

I always stop and get live shrimp at the market on the corner on my way to the beach, fill my cooler with ice at "Twice the Ice" behind them and then get a pulled pork bbq sandwich and a sweet tea at Down South behind them. This is a true Southern "hole in the wall" place that has fantastic... More

They have excellent pull pork and brisket. I like ordering the crackling cornbread sandwich. 2 corn bread pancakes with jalapeno pepper s, a scoop of pulled pork and a scoop of slaw. The people are very friendly and pricing is reasonable. They close around 6 PM and seating is outdoors.

Stumbled upon this little gem last year and had to come back. It's a walk up BBQ stand where you can get it to go or have a seat on their screened in picnic tables. This is some good meat. Fall off the bone ribs and super juicy chicken. The locals that were there told us "you can't go wrong... More

My wife and I always visited this place for a pound of pork when on vacation in the area. We like the area so much that we moved to Pensacola two months ago. We stopped by Down South today for a pound of pork to take home for sandwiches, paid the regular price, and was told that we were given... More

Very inexpensive. If you like BBQ you will enjoy your stop here. The staff is friendly and efficient. It is primarily a takeaway restaurant. We actually ate on picnic tables in a screen in area. I had the ribs and my husband had the pulled pork. The potato salad, the slaw, and the sweet tea were delicious.

Didn't have anything hot. Also out of a lot of sides (slaw, cornbread). Wish they put on website that they were closing early (2:30). Picked up ribs, brisket & brought back to condo to heat up. Both very good. Coming back down for Xmas. Will call 1st & hopefully stop in on the way from the airport.

Fantastic smoked BBQ. Tender and tasteful they do an excellant job of making every dish one to remember. The sides are equally delicious. Try the Horseradish potato salad. as different as it is good. makes you want to go back for more everytime.

Down South makes the best ribs, cole slaw, pulled pork sandwiches. and potato salad in the Foley area. We are looking forward to our next visit and plan to try the cornbread and pulled chicken.
