You walk in and there you are. No seats. No tables. Just a window for you to order at so obviously it’s a to-go order only.. We ordered turkey sandwiches - $3.49 each. (Yes, at a BBQ joint) Turkey was shredded and moist, but it...had no flavor. The sandwiches need to be on regular buns. Not a fan of their bread choice. Had slaw on the side. It was vinegar based and yuck is the best way to describe it. White sauce, way too runny. We also ordered a slice of coconut and a slice of chocolate pie. $2.25 a slice. Have had better pie.More

We went through the drive-thru last night to get some supper. I was pleasantly surprised that the drive-thru was moving fast. Staff was pleasant and happy to serve. The food doesn’t disappoint. Since it’s fall, the Brunswick stew is awesome! Love getting that in a...lunch box! The sandwiches are well filled and the cookies are so good! So don’t let the long line deter you from some good bbq!More

This is my all time favorite pulled pork! They are very consistent in the quality, taste and freshness! No they don't have a room full of trophies but they would if they competed. They don't have to compete, they are the best! We drive from...out of town regularly just to buy it for take home!More

Whitts was our first stop when we arrived in decatur and it was so good! I had the pulled pork sandwich and my husband had the stew. We were both very happy with our choices! The white chocolate macadamia was amazing! Definitely recommend.

Their BBQ is great, the stuffed potatoes are out of this world. The staff is wonderful and they know how to handle crowds in the drive through. You always have enough leftovers for the next day.

A varied menu of Southern favorites. The BBQ sandwich remains the best in town and topped off with one of their chocolate chip cookies, it simply does not get any better!

Whitts is always good to go to for a good BBQ sandwich. There seems to be something a little bit different in their sandwiches that make them even better than other places. I definitely recommend.

The smoked chicken never disappoints. I recently purchased a large amount of chicken for my church and everyone has raved about it!

Their baked beans are awesome. Like their BBQ but it does taste a little vinegary to me. I prefer mayo based coleslaw but if you like vinegar based then you will like theirs. Meat is tender, never fatty.

Walked in and ordered the turkey lunch box. Includes a bbq turkey sandwich, potato salad, baked beans, drink and cookie! Around $7! Ordered and received in 6 minutes! Food was delicious. Don’t forget to order sauce.
