Okay food- great service

The food was okay. I can't say it was good and I can't say it was bad. The pork was a little dry. The waitress was very nice along with the hostess.

We stopped by for lunch one day during training, and it was pretty standard BBQ. I love BBQ, so I really look for something that makes it stand out like a good Memphis rub, etc. the restaurant was really well kept and had a nice bar. The staff was friendly, but the waitress was a little inattentive. We had to... More

We had never eaten here - had a late lunch on a Saturday. Food was average; service okay. I've had better but certainly have had worse. Probably rocks out at night.

My daughter and I went here for my birthday. We enjoyed the atmosphere and very much enjoyed the food. Four of the employees came out with an ice-cream sundae and sang happy birthday to me. I am more than pleased with the service and the food. All in all it was my best birthday ever.

Great service, I go there for their hamburger, don't recommend anything else, ribs are more like beef jerky and dry chicken, laid back atmosphere

This by far is one of the most average barbecue restaurants in Birmingham. The food is okay and nothing was spectacular.

Was looking for some good take-out BBQ near my hotel, and Southern Legacy seemed to have good reviews. I went to the restaurant to order, planning to have a beer while waiting, and take my food to go. It wasn't busy at the time, yet the bartender was clearly more interested in talking with her friends than taking my order.... More

We went with a large group. Service was friendly and accurate. The brisket was tender, but no smoke. Yummo fried tomato BLT, but the highlight of the evening was the bread pudding with carmel sauce. It comes with vanilla ice cream. They are happy to pack it up to go if you're too full to eat it there. This is... More

Southern Legacy BBQ was recommended to us and did not disappoint! We ordered a two-meat plate of pulled pork, which came with four pork ribs. The pulled pork was excellent -- very tender, and the Legacy sauce was delicious! This plate also came with a choice of two sides. Very generous portions! Definitely got your money's worth!!! Christy, the bartender,... More
