This place is the perfect BBQ joint. The atmosphere makes you feel you are in a back alley somewhere in Memphis eating bbq and listening to blues, but you are in a nice Bham neighborhood. The pulled pork is one of the best I've eaten....More

Fabulous BBQ restaurant in Homewood (near Birmingham). The chicken with white sauce is perfection. And the pulled pork is just as good. Excellent sides and authentic, no frills atmosphere. And try the excellent banana cream pudding.

We stopped for lunch after reading the ratings and it was as amazing as people said. Very rustic and inviting. The pulled pork was extremely tasty as were the onion rings and grilled chicken. The baked beans seemed like out of the can pork and...More
