In Tuscaloosa, there is no shortage of BBQ joints, but when I moved to town this is where my lifelong local neighbors told me to try. No disappoint here! Fell in love with the ribs and atmosphere.

We were encouraged by the 'rustic' outside look of the outside, expecting really juicy, flavorful, no frills BBQ...did not know Archibald and Woodrow's is a chain. One of us ordered ribs and brisket (2 meat plate) with greens and peas...other had just ribs, greens and fried green tomatoes. The ribs were tough unfortunately...not cooked long enough? We enjoyed the collard... More

Great food. My husband had the pork sandwich and the meat was nice and moist, with just the right amount of crunchy ends. Good fried okra and I had the catfish. Very fresh, hot and tasty. They could use a new air conditioner though. :)

The best b-b-q ribs in the South are at A&W. I have travelled extensively and these are by far the best. The meat is smoked and seasoned so well that you really don't need the sauce, but add the sauce and that's like icing on a cake. The chicken wings are good also.

Very good BBQ-much much better than Dreamland. Love the okra too. Downside is no alcohol but they will let you bring it in.

It was between 5 & 6 pm. I was solo, so I chose to sit at the counter. It seemed like an honest mistake, but the girl or anyone else working there never asked to me if I was there for pick-up or was waiting to be greeted and given a menu. It was as if I was invisible for... More

Unclean floors from the front all the way into the bathroom were it was worse. Floors were so greasy, I slid on them. Instant mash potato , canned gravy, NO BBQ sauce on the bar-b-que. We asked for bbq sauce and was brought hot sauce inside. The fried green tomatoes, were burnt.

If you are looking 4 the best BBQ in Alabama you've got to eat here, they also have some of the best chicken wings but I've had in Tuscaloosa. With very great atmosphere and excellent food and a very friendly service to boot. You won't be disappointed.

I love BBQ and can be picky about finding good BBQ. This place isn't good it's great. One of my all time favorite BBQ places. Fall off the bones ribs, pork so good it doesn't need sauce, great catfish and wings that you just got to try. Ate at Dreamland just a few days before and have to say there... More
