My son and I were headed through Troy at lunch time and decided to try Hook's for the first time. We shared the Whiz Bang plate. It was really yummy. My son's only complaint was that the meat had too much sauce. I didn't mind though because the sauce was fantastic. We will definitely go back!

While traveling through Alabama, we commented that we should try some southern BBQ, and what should appear just a few miles later? Hooks! We made a quick stop, and were not disappointed. They offer beef, pork, and chicken BBQ with regular or hot sauce, along with a variety of sides, including homemade pound cake. All was served hot and delicious... More

Our family always stops at Hooks on the way to the beach. It is a favorite for us. The staff is extremely helpful. Yesterday, they showed us a few ways to save a couple of dollars. The food is great, and the portions are plenty. Excellent choice if you are looking for great BBQ.

There are all kinds of styles of bbq, depending on where you're at in the country. While driving through Georgia and Alabama, many of the bbq joints feature a mustard/vinegar based sauce. Hooks is one of those places. Though not as mustardy or vinegary as others I've had, there is a distinct mustard trait to the sauce. So if you... More

We had read about Hook's in the book the Ala. Dept of Tourism put out about bbq. Not sure what my expectations were since I had been to a couple of the places in the book that were not any good. (Others in it I tried are ok). Anyhow, we got pork sandwiches to go. GREAT smoked pork taste. Sauce... More

I had there pull pork sandwich that was the size of a burger. It didn't have a lot of sauce on it. I think that would have made it better. The baked beans were good but a very small portion.

The food is very good, a great variety, I wish the dining area was a little nicer. The people couldn't be any nicer. I'll be back for sure

Every time I am passing in Troy at mealtime , I can't help but stop. Some of the best BBQ in the South. I have purchased pound cakes for gifts . Prices seem just right with the amount of food that is provided. A perfect balance. Clean, smells great with the pit blowing outside . A must for anyone that... More
