We had the short ribs with sides. Oh my goodness, those were THE best ribs ever. We also had some of the white macadamia nut cookies, they were so rich and big you can hardly eat a whole one.

Multiple locations in Decatur Alabama. Spring Avenue and 6th Avenue. Excellent pork BBQ sandwiches and chicken plates.

This is by far, one of the best values in town. Consistently good food & love their lunch boxes! Just sorry they don't have a sit down area to eat. Drive thru only.

Whitt's pork is juicy and flavorful. The sweet, crunchy slaw (vinegar, not mayonnaise based) which tops the sandwich is the perfect accompaniment. The vinegary slaw lets the smoky pork flavor shine through. It isn't fancy, but it is southern bbq at its purest form. Great pork doesn't need a heavy sauce!

We pick up BBQ often from Whitt's. Decatur has two locations and both are always good. This is true Southern BBQ. Their stew is really good too!

this is old fashioned bbq, I like the pulled pork with sauce sandwich. it comes topped with coleslaw and choice of sides and all are excellent. my favorite is the corn salad, but I think they only have that one when fresh corn is in season. it is drive through, but they have picnic tables if you'd like to eat...

I ate at Whitts back in 2005 and it was some of the best BBQ I ever ate, we'll me and my family stopped by to see if it was still that good (2016) and all I can say is Whitts still has the best BBQ I have ever put in my mouth. Moist smoky flavor that can't be beat.... More

21 of us invaded Whitts on a Thursday night and they handled it well. Very good service and food. Ice tea, sodas and lemonade came in large glasses....😊. High marks for the gumbo, salad bar and burgers. If I return to this area again I will choose Whitts.

We love to eat Whitt's Bar-B-Que. It is not an eat in restaurant but worth taking home or on a picnic. We enjoy all they have on the menu. They have pork ( our favorite), beef, and stew. You can get a box with a sandwich, beans, chips and a cookie that is very reasonably priced.Try it, you'll like it!

Thank Lucille L
