Ben's has been a fixture in Fairhope for many years and good for them. I recently decided to give them another try (despite a bad experience long ago) via takeout. The meats I ordered (a pound of pulled BBQ pork and a whole BBQ chicken) and the hamburger for my spouse were very good. However, the sides (cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans) were pretty awful. My suggestion if you dine here is to try other sides or simply do what I'm going to do in the future, and order the meats but do your own sides. The interior does seem a bit nasty as some reviewers have said, so takeout is probably your best option. Also know they close around 3 pm daily so they are NOT an option for dinner unless you do early takeout for a later dinner.
