“Finger lickin' good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

This review is for the store in Fultondale. We stopped south of Birmingham for Johnny Ray's, but there was a sign in the window starting they were closed for vacation until the 14th. It being the 18th, we thought that was a bad sign.
Fortunately we found Full Moon. My all white meat pulled chicken sandwich was fantastic. It comes with chow-chow. Don't tell them to hold it. My wife had the turkey sandwich. It had moist, smoked thick slices of turkey piled high. My son had the fried catfish sandwich that was delicious, and he is a picky eater. My daughters had a burger and chicken tenders. They loved them. Get a side of onion rings-you'll be glad you did. Oh, one other thing. Don't get the large sandwiches unless you are REALLY hungry. I don't eat light, but the smalls were enough with the fries and rings. The fried okra is also good.

“Okay but too pricey for what you get...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Went to Full Moon on Memorial Day for lunch with friends. I had the BBQ pork plate with the onion rings and fried green tomatoes along with a piece of chocolate pie and a small Dr. Pepper. Total bill for one over $18.00 wow!!! I've had steak dinners that were much better for less at other restaurants... The BBQ was okay... the onion rings over cooked and the three green tomatoes were okay... Not the best BBQ in town especially for the price.

“One of Alabama's best barbeque restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

In a state known for great barbeque, the Full Moon stands out as one of the best. I had lunch at the highway 31 location in Hoover and it was excellent as always. Their large pulled pork sandwich is very generous and coupled well with magnificent fried onion rings. Their menu also includes barbequed beef and chicken. Although my diet would not allow it, Full Moon desserts all also well known--their cookies in particular. The decor is sports oriented with a focus on Alabama, Auburn and the University of Alabama - Birmingham athletic teams, but there are some references to other SEC teams as well. A fun atmosphere with fast service and excellent food!
