I think next time I will get my BBQ on a bun rather than on Texas toast, I thought the bread got... read more

After spending some time at the Foley outlet mall, we thought it was time for some lunch. Yeah, there’s a Lambert’s Café in Foley - it is rated number one; and we enjoyed eating there a number of years ago but we opted for something different. We drove south of town a bit and down a county road a short... More

FYI- there isn't any indoor seating or bathroom facilities but not an issue for regulars as ourselves.They do have an outdoor screened area with picnic tables that... More

Just a take out location. Have gotten barbeque from these folks many times, always good. Not the best ive ever had but good. Skip the slaw. Folks are most always friendly.

If you want GREAT BBQ qhile you're at the beach, try Down South on County Road 10. We've lived here for 11 years and tried several different places before we found Down South. We keep going back over and over again. I recommend the large pork sandwich which is more than two people can eat. The camp/brunswick stew is some... More

Friends of ours stayed at our home in Gulf Shores over the summer and raved about this bbq place in Foley that we had never been to before. Definitely no-frills and everything is packed to-go. Some of the reviews complained about their hours so we made sure to go early. I had a pork plate and my husband had the... More

Great BBQ, Great prices and we really enjoyed ourselves sitting in their eating area just watching the people and visting. For a quick sandwich and great BBQ don't miss this hidden gem just... More

Food is always good. BBQ that lets you taste the meat itself. A great smoke on every type of meat I've gotten. Owner says he makes Thanksgiving turduckens. Would love to try them!!

Found this place thru TA & HAD to add to my stop list. SO glad I did! It was AMAZING!! Had the brisket, mustard potato salad, and green beans. Service was fast and friendly. Ate in the screened room. Would not hesitate to go back again when in the area!! I would've given it more stars if possible!!!
