Stopped in before hitting Bass Pro Shops, very nice folks, very local friendly, old south bbq, the name says it all. Great tea, prices are reasonable and a great alternative to a chain restaurant

Stopping for the family pack is always easy and delicious. We have meals for dinner and lunch the next day. I don't know how many years we've gone to Old Smokey but it's been at least 15 and I still think they are up there with the best.

You liked "Happy Days", you liked Joanie on "Happy Days", hey you even liked Chachi on "Happy Days". And, the powers that be heard you loud and clear. So, they put out "Joanie loves Chachi". And, you watched it...for, like an episode or two. Then, you wondered why in the world you were watching it. This place is like that... More

Their pulled pork bbq taste like it has been re-heated. The chicken and ribs were both very dry. I cook in bbq competitions, so I know good bbq, and this was not good bbq. Also, the seating area is very small and cramped. No wait staff. I will not go back.

Was visiting the Barber Motorcycle Museum and stopped in for lunch. It's a small place but very clean and run very efficiently. I had the BBQ ribs and my friends all ordered sandwiches. I also ordered the cole slaw which was very good. Ordered the ribs with the sauce on the side as I like to control the amount of... More

Best Cheese Burger around. I know the Bar B Q is good but we love the burgers along with an order of O rings.

this is the closest BBQ to Barber motorsports park so we stopped here for lunch. They are really authentic! The pork was awesome, the beef was a bit dry. Both were great with bbq sauce that was unlike anything I've had before. Try it!

The large BBQ sandwich is great for lunch. Be careful or you will have BBQ sauce all over you. You can stop in for lunch after you leave the Grand River Mall. Much better than the food court.

Old Smokey is the most consistent BBQ joint that I have been to in Birmingham, with the exception of Dreamland. Old Smokey constantly delivers awesome ribs, pork, and hamburgers. I can't get enough. They're located up the road from my several of my family members' homes, and we get take out every time I visit. The one thing I discovered... More
