This was really good BBQ meat and sauce, but I'd rather the sandwich be served on a bun instead of soggy white bread. I loved the atmosphere, tho!!!!!

They have great ribs. Great fried catfish, pulled pork, chicken wings and all kinds of great sides like collard greens, mac and cheese, etc. Good alternative to Dreamland's very limited menu.

My hotel recommended this place and I am glad they did! Service was great, fast and friendly. The mixed meat dinner included ribs, pork, white bread and two sides. The meat was cooked to perfection and the beans and slaw were very good. All that for about 12 bucks make this a must try.

BBQ is great. Simple and delicious. Sides are typical Southern Fare-- small place. Pork served on a piece of sliced bread. Green beans were good. I took my food back to hotel.

I was introduced to this BBQ as a child in the early 60s. I have eaten BBQ all over the South and IMO you cant beat this place. Its not fancy but after you take a bite you couldn't care less about fancy tables and such.

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.
