We have been to several BBQ places here mobile visit. This place has the best BBQ in the area. The staff is fun and hilarious. Building is little run down but adds to ambience.

My partner and I stopped here for lunch driving between Montgomery and New Orleans. We stopped on the recommendation of the book Road Food which was our guide to eating across the states. The BBQ pulled pork was the best pulled pork I've ever had. Service was lovely and very quick, though we were there very late for lunch so... More

The BBQ here is soo good!! The inside looks pretty sketchy but the food is amazing.. The pulled pork had a great smoke flavor and the bbq sauce was not over powering.

Good BBQ in a quaint old house setting. The food is good and service is fairly quick. They smoke their meats fresh daily.

Tried 4 different bbq joints in Mobile and this was probably my favorite. However, the menu is the smallest of all of them so don't go in expecting a lot of options. The ribs here were the best I've tried. I like a lot of sauce and sure got it without asking. This was my boyfriend's 2nd favorite of all... More

Best BBQ we've ever had! Funky place, too! We ordered up a sampler plate with chicken, ribs, and pulled pork. It also came with Cole slaw and potato salad. Everything was absolutely incredible! Homemade banana pudding for dessert. It was great too! Bring a sharpie and sign your name on the wall if you can find a spot!

In town for business I asked my hotel front desk where a good non-chain bbq place was nearby and they recommended the Brick Pit. Got there around 730 and as I was trying to pull in I saw them putting them closed sign up, but when they saw me trying to pull on the sign was flipped back to open.... More

The Brick Pit is superb. I like the BBQ sandwich and sauce. They are always crowded for lunch and the crowd moves quickly. Only a couple of blocks from the USA campus and near the post office.

We ate here on a Friday night, we were able to order and get a table right away. Orders are placed at the counter and one of the gentlemen that worked there brought the food out to us when it was done. Overall it was pretty good! This was the start of a long weekend of visiting BBQ restaurants in... More
