Best BBQ!!!

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... read more

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

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.

We recently went to Legacy BBQ to watch sports on the many TVs scattered I the restaurant. The beer selections are very good. We were told what beers were not available that evening and could choose from many other options. After ordering the beers, food was the next choice. We were unfamiliar with the menu choices but, had some guidance... More

The food was not fresh nor was it warm. Severed out of order. I would give this place a very low rating....

I've written about many BBQ places before and several nearby during my stay in Hoover, AL for several weeks. I visited this place twice and was equally pleased with the FOOD each time. I prefer BBQ chicken and got a baked potato and green beans each time. That being said, the chicken was consistently cooked well and juicy throughout, and... More

Very clean with excellent wait staff. Good selection of beers and all the BBQ favorites. Ribs were very good (large St. Louis style) but was disappointed with the Sat. night prime rib special. Had good smoky flavor and was cooked as I liked but I suspect the grade of meat was "select" and not "choice" which would explain the reasonable... More
