Food was extremely good, service was decent, but size of the restaurant is very limited. Very nostalgic environment. You do have to travel just outside of town to get to this place though.

We visited this joint, after reading the amazing reviews, the meat has little to no flavor and is greasy. The sauce is total Vinegar, and hard to eat, had to add ketchup to cut the flavor.

I really enjoyed their barbeque! The service was great, the environment was nostalgic, and the barbeque was straight from the pit!

Great little BBQ spot. My husband and brother loved the ribs and I love the pulled pork salad. The salad is huge, be prepared to share it with someone!

A local icon for 40 years. I love their vinegar based sauce, fries and slaw. Whenever I have Yankees in town this is where we go...it's always a great hit.

Full meals or quick sandwich, we always leave happy. Sauce recipe goes back to 1840's. If you're really in a hurry, call ahead for takeout. Parking lot is on AL 22 so you don't have to turn on County Rd. 46.

Everyone argues about the barbecue style they prefer, but Hancocks BBQ is a perfect balance between the Lexington Style of BBQ from north carolina and the traditional alabama bbq flavors.
