“Fairhope classic”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Open for lunch only. Known best for their burgers and BBQ, but offer shrimp and oysters as well. Small; waiting in line is common.

“Once in a Lifetime”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

This place was recommended by a local, but we were very disappointed. When we entered the building, we were screamed at by the man in charge because we did not line up correctly. We waited patiently for a table, and he barked at us when it was ready. The bbq was mediocre and the dining room old and dirty.

Reviewed June 3, 2011

Order at the counter and take a seat. Simple as that. Love their bbq sandwiches washed down with a sweet tea.
