They do a great job with tasty meats and sides. Great smoked flavor. Servings were average size for a homegrown barbecue restaurant, but I'm a carnivore--and would just like larger meat portions--but I understand that's my personal bias. When I want barbecue, I just want the meats--and could care less about slaw, beans, corn or other sides. Altogether excellent food.

A tiny roadside frame building that is cafeteria style. The Food is good...crowded seating in the small air conditioned eating space. The food is so good that there is a line standing out int eh Alabama heat to wait their turn.

Awesome BBQ place right off the main road. The Brisket was just perfect with the potato salad. The Texas toast was just as good.

Come early or they may run out of food. This is some of the best BBQ in North Alabama!!!! The staff is nice. Don't blink your eye when you are trying to find it or you may miss it. This is a little hole in the wall but the food can stand up to any major BBQ restaurant!

Before my grandsons and I traveled to the Huntsville AL, I checked food options for the area. The top rated BBQ restaurant was in Madison, AL, just west of Huntsville. It also happened to be across the highway from our hotel. I thought good; it will be a convenient location for a quick meal. Then I saw the place and... More

All of the food is delicious. Many here rave that this is the best... More

Love their brisket. Great flavor. Smoked sausage is wonderful. Baked beans have chunks of smoked pork in them that is a meal onto itself. A must place to go if you like BBQ.

By far the best place for BBQ in Madison and probably Huntsville. Great selection but make sure to get there early if you are doing lunch it gets packed quick

Really awesome BBQ!!! One of the best in the Huntsville area. Brisket melts in your mouth. Small but quaint business with select hours, not open all the time. But so worth the days that they are open!!!

We needed a super fast dinner for our large family after a long day of driving. We stopped here and it didn't disappoint. It was a little pricey but far better than settling for fast food!
