We wanted to try authentic Alabama style BBQ and heard that this place had great tasting barbecue but the atmosphere had a lot to be desired. I did not mind the writing on the wall and the simple furniture. However, we could not get past the foul odor in the restaurant. I knew we were in trouble when my 5... More

This place has amazing BBQ, especially the ribs. There isn't much in the way of atmosphere, so a lot of people use the take-out option. This is a carnivores delight with amazing flavor and generous portions.

I have been a customer for about the week after they opened. I will drive from 2 miles west of the airport, 45 Min. Round trip, just to get smoked pork and banana pudding. BEST DAMN SMOKED MEAT IN ALABAMA!!!!!!!!!!!

While planning our trip south, I heard a recommendation for this outpost of southern BBQ from a Kansas Citian who I assumed knew "Q". There is a lot to like about Brick Pit, but sadly it is not the food. Drove off I-10 and wandered about for awhile until "Garmina" finally got us directed correctly. But when we pulled up,... More

This is a locally owned restaurant. Many Mobilians faithfully come here. Winner of many awards for their BBQ. The restaurant is a rustic bungalow that serves lunch, dinner or take out. Atmosphere is non- existent. The restaurant walls are grafittied on purpose. TV in the corner is on the sports channel. You can sit down, have a beer, eat in... More

We are from Texas and have eaten BBQ a lot. This BBQ was OK but not great. I ordered the pulled pork plate with spicy BBQ sauce. They poured the BBQ sauce all over the pork. It was so hot I could hardly eat it. Most places serve the sauce on the side. My wife had a Pulled Pork sandwich... More

First, the pulled pork was very delicious. The meat was tender and had a nice smoky taste to it. However, the ribs were horrific compared to other Bar B Que places that I have eaten at. The meat was extremely tough and the ribs lacked a quality rub. For the most part, the ribs did not live up to par... More

The staff were very friendly. The service was quick. We shared BBQ ribs and pulled pork. Got the spicy but it really was not that spicy to me. He atmosphere is different.

Had honestly driven across the Bay to eat at The Shed, but found it out of business. Our GPS directed us to this amazing place and could not have been more pleased! The staff were all pleasant and apologetic when they ran out of one of the sides offered...REALLY good BBQ. It ain't fancy, but it's GOOD!

They need to bottle their BBQ sauce! It was nothing like I ever tried before and absolutely amazing. I am not a big pork person but their pulled pork sandwich was GREAT! Ribs were amazing as well. Not many spices on the meat, just smoke and BBQ sauce.
