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

Best burger ever! Big burgers with amazing taste. Everyone loves eating there. Get a big sweet tea, it's the best sweet tea in a big mason jar. Best place in Fairhope or Baldwin county!
