only about two minutes from the interstate, Porky's is a great place for a BBQ. Serving does not disappoint. Just get the jumbo sandwich and you will not regret it. Friendly and down home place. Don't forget it.

If you are traveling down I-65 and your hunger threatens to get the better of you give Porky's a try! Tasty sandwiches and ribs. Whole in the wall kind of deal.

The food here is always good. My favorite is the chicken finger sandwich with bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese. Also the thick sliced fried baloney sandwich is awesome. But everything is good. Always stop for lunch when I have time.

A hidden local jewel. I was looking for a great steak and found it!! So Juicy and delicious. The ribs are fabulous and fall off the bone. They have a bar on one end and offer a cook your own steak if you like. You can pick your thick steak and grill it on a huge indoor grill as you... More

A little mom and pop place. Looked a little rough outside, but was really nice and clean inside. Large portions, super friendly. Recommended!

We saw the good reviews and decided to stop by for dinner. Wife and I were the only ones there in this small, family owned place. We each had rib platter with two sides. Ribs were large pork ribs but were very tender. They had a dry rub bur were served with a homemade BBQ sauce that was delicious. Fried... More

We found this joint via other TripAdvisor comments and they were right. Great local flavor. We were visiting my daughter at Birmingham Southern and staying in Fultondale. The owner took our order and treated us like family - in a good way! BBQ was really good. My daughter had the smoked sausage and it was solid, too. Good sides. It... More

Porky's is a bit off the beaten path but well worth the short drive off I-65. The pork sandwich is delicious and loaded with pork that is tender, smoky and moist. The ribs are excellent as well and fall off the bone tender. The sides are average but good and the homemade desserts are hit and miss depending on your... More

When talking BBQ in Birmingham, the first choice for many is Dreamland's. Porky's Pride, a small and simple joint in an outskirts of Birmingham, rivals its much better known rival. The BBQ pork ribs here are wonderful! We also had the catfish plate and the banana pudding, both of which were also outstanding. We actually preferred the simple charm of... More
