BBQ for lunch

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!!!

We went to Southern Legacy barbeque after a football game. There were lots of televisions to watch other games and the restaurant is comfortable, with pleasant workers, but the food is always lacking. My husband had nachos that were not very warm and I had a loaded barbeque baked potato that was not cooked soft enough.

I ordered the fries with pulled pork appetizer as my meal and it was delicious! My husband ordered fried catfish and he really enjoyed it. Our server was great and very friendly.
