In Hoover for a business meeting and the company had Full Moon Bar-B-Que brought in for lunch. I live in the Memphis area and can say that the pulled pork sandwich from Full Moon was every bit as good, if not better than what I've found in Memphis. Very moist and tasteful, even without sauce. Good beans and potato salad... More

This is your regular bbq restaurant. Not much distinguishes it from the competition. The service was ok, as well, but nothing that really stands out about it. The portion sizes are large, though, which means you'll get bang for your buck. This is a small location, also, just a heads up.

We used to live in Birmingham, but moved away in 2010. Full Moon was one of our places to eat, so we made sure to eat there during a recent trip. This time, the food and service were just average. It was later at night, so we would return again to see if the food was any better if visiting... More

Everything is delicious. Great BBQ, burgers, chicken and fish. Good veggies too. If you have a diverse group, you will fine something for them. However the BBQ is delicious. I go thinking I will have a different item, but the smell sucks me back in to the BBQ.

The barbecue is good. Tender ribs, great wings, and good brisket. But the real surprise was the key lime pie. It wasn't too tart or lime flavored. Creamy and delicious. Best I have had, but I haven't eaten a lot of key lime pie.

We love BBQ. We love southern food. FULL MOON BBQ nails it every time. Whether it be the black eyes peas, corn bread, turkey, chicken, brisket, pulled pork, greens, taters, coleslaw or anything on their menu; it's great, Southern-comfort food. We love Full Moon BBQ.

We usually have a great experience at this location of Full Moon. This time while waiting to order, the manager yelled to a customer across the restaurant "we only serve fresh food to Bama fans". That's not what you want to hear before you order your dinner. Poor judgment and it makes me think twice about going back. Food was... More

Late dinner after Talladega kind of by default since it was open. My chicken was plentiful and not overcooked. The collared greens were very tasty. The bbq beans not so great. Side bbq sauce labeled very hot - not so much - but I really liked it. Friend's inside brisket was ok. Outside not so much. I think this is... More

Decided to eat at this Full Moon because we had to come to Hoover to visit a local tuxedo store. We have a Full Moon near where we live and we love it so we thought it would be a good idea. Upon entering you could hardly breathe, I love the smell of BBQ but this was a bit over... More

Food is always fresh and tasty. I have always been able to get in and out without having to wait too long. Service has always been excellent.
