Bens has, hands down, the BEST Burgers in the entire county! Yummy down home flavor, HUGE portions and cooked to order. I could eat them everyday. If you are in Fairhope stop in and give them a try. The place doesn't look like much and...More

The kind of place that has stood the test of time. Order at the counter and then take a seat if you can find one. Someone will be by shortly with drinks in mason jars. We had brisket sandwich and chicken sandwich both of which...More

The barbeque is fabulous. The fried seafood is scrumptious. The hamburgers are the best ever. The only downside is that it's only open for lunch and it's crazy crowded.

Always has great bbq; never have been disappointed during our many trips there. You order at the counter, then they bring it, and service is terrific!

I don't understand all the cars out there at lunch time. It must be some kind of tradition. You will have to wait in line around lunch time. Very average BBQ. Hot and crowded. Go figure?

This is a fairly popular local barbecue place. If LA Barbecue (in Summerdale) and Dreamland (in Mobile) were not nearby, it might be worth visiting more often. I have been here enough to know that I would rather spend money on gas to go to...More

Great barbeque. We tried to the pulled pork, and it was better than Moes. We used to love Moes in Orange Beach, but have tried the one in Daphne two times and was not impressed. We came from Southern Illinois, anyone who knows barbeque knows...More
