Quick service and great food. Anytime I am back in town, I head straight here for a consistent meal and great prices.

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!

Stopped in with a friend for lunch. He promised it would be good. Quick service, good food and good price. I loved the brisket.

I'm perplexed as to why Whitt's BBQ isn't #1 Absolutely best pulled pork around ! My personal favorite are the oversized sandwiches they offer at many locations ! Enough said !

I always loved Whitts but the new add on to the menu is even better. The grilled corn is excellent along with my pork box lunch!

Nice, clean, friendly, with excellent BBQ (athough that WHITE BBQ sauce ... what's the deal with that?) Fortunately they had others, including my favorite Carolina Style. My pulled pork and my wife's chicken were both excellent, with good sides.

Whitts Barbecue is the best in north Alabama. No other barbecue even comes close to being as good as Whitts.

Whatever Whitt's is doing, their formula is working! Great place to pick up bbq and take home or to work! Tasty sandwiches, great potato salad! Lots of people get box lunches! Not my fav in Decatur but is for a lot of people!
