The Brick Pit smokes their meats the old fashioned way, and you can taste it! We love it there, and even when my parents aren't able to go, we get some take out. We have not been disappointed! It is a local treasure!

Not the best tasting BBQ in Mobile and quite expensive for what you get. Nice location near USA campus for students and anyone visiting.

Lunch rib platter had 3 ribs, only one was good. Pulled meats looked better. Potato salad and cole slaw are very sweet. Just not to my liking. Friendly, local spot. Limited seating.

First off. This is a restaurant in an old house. The inside walls and ceiling is covered in graffiti. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. The pulled pork had a good smokey flavor. The beans and tater salad was great....More
