One of the best in the country

I've eaten barbecue all over the country and this little place is my current favorite. The meat has a wonderful smokey flavor and the sauce is delicious. If you want to eat on site instead of getting take out, there's a screened porch with picnic tables and fan. Nothing fancy here, just... read more

If you want to eat on site instead of getting take out, there's a screened porch with picnic tables and fan. Nothing fancy here, just delicious food and friendly people.

These great folks catered my daughter's wedding. Ribs and pulled pork are terrific. They also make horseradish potato salad which I'd never had before. And it was amazing! Can't go wrong with this place for some pretty good BBQ.

We had the pulled pork sandwich. Nothing fancy, just good BBQ. Fast, polite service. Not a restaurant, just a couple picnic tables. Probably helps keep prices reasonable and I ain't got no problem with that. We will definitely return!!

We had very low expectations when passing through Foley that we would be able to find anything other than chain restaurants, but we were pleasantly surprised when we came across this place. It looks like kind of a dump but don't let the appearances fool you. The food is quite tasty and the lemonade was the best lemonade that I... More

Stopped in to try BBQ and it was delicious. We had BBQ pork sandwiches. No disappointment there! Very casual - no dining room - just a screened in area to eat outside. Very clean and reasonably priced. A must for quick stop service!

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 and the prices are about what you would... 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
