A yummy stop

We found this online when wanting to try ribs in Alabama. It seemed like a gem, good prices, many great reviews and well known. We stopped in for lunch and the atmosphere was great. Photos on the walls of famous people who have eaten there. Happy with the food and prices, just as yummy as expected... read more

The portion sizes are large. My husband and I shared a pulled pork plate for lunch. The prices are reasonable, but the BBQ is only OK. We drove from Biloxi to try it.

I've been several times to Brick Pit and loved the food each time. Everyone else did as well. My niece loved all the graffiti on the walls and ceilings.

Took my family here today for lunch. We ordered the pulled pork plates. I thought it was good but not anything to write home about. The service was very good, quick and everyone was friendly. I'd go back to try the ribs.

One thing I know is my husband loves GOOD BBQ. This was not good. I had the BBQ chicken plate w/ spicy sauce. It wasn't spicy and chicken wasn't smoky at all. It was dry. My sides slaw and potato salad were flavorful but too much mayo. Rod had the rib plate and the ribs were very tender and cooked... More

Located outside downtown mobile, the "Brick Pit" is a ver well known BBQ restaurant. Parking out front or around the back We ordered the chicken and shredded pulled pork. Not the best I have had but very tasty. The beans were incredibly delicious! Get the banana desert, yummy! Friendly service and food arrived quickly
