The best barque you could eat!!! Very reasonable! This is not much of a place, but the food is delicious!!! This restaurant has been featured on national television.

I love this place since i live in Mobile what is almost 8 years. Always bring all my visitors from Germany. The food is extremely good and the place is super unique. If you ever come to Mobile you gotta try it. Its pulled pork platter is to die for.

I asked a local for his recommendation of a Southern Style BBQ eatery, and his first and only recommendation for a non-chain place was the Brick Pit. He said "Keep your eye out closely as it looks like a house. It's a dive. You can easily miss it because it is set back from the road slightly"......a spot on description.... More

Some of the best places are the ones off the beaten trail. I wanted some real Alabama barbecue and as we exited the interstate for Mobile, AL., I stopped and checked Google for the best barbecue in Mobile. It came up with this address and we plotted it in the GPS and in about 5 miles later, I found it.... More

Ribs, Pulled pork, chicken, and everything else you order there is awesome. Their banana pudding is great and their baked beans are the best!

Fantastic food. A down home environment. And good prices. You'll never want Dreamland again after eating here.

Our group loves great BBQ, heard from some locals on the college campus to try it. Food is very, very good. The staff is quite friendly and attentive. The old house is in need of some attention, They need to spend some money to update and clean the bathrooms especially! If you need your restaurant experience to be squeaky clean,... More

This is a place based on looks you might pass on by, but don't be fooled! The food is excellent and the staff is awesome. The bread pudding is amazing too!
