Loved this BBQ! Had the large pork sandwich with potato salad....they even "pulled" the pork for me! The sauce was amazingly good - everything was delicious!! Our server was awesome - loved her!! All of the servers seemed to be wonderful and everyone seemed to have a great attitude! I'm already looking forward to another visit to Mobile, AL just so I can eat here again!!

While the specialty may be BBQ, you have got to try the other selections. Price is good. Atmosphere is quaint. Service is always friendly and prompt. Lunch specials are worth going to every day. We have had these folks cater for our work site and easily satisfied at least one hundred hungry folks.

Can't get a better breakfast or lunch anywhere. The biscuits and peach preserves are delicious. The cheeseburgers are a hit too!

Arrived for dinner. We had the pork ate with beans and potato salad. Appetizer was gumbo over rice. The gumbo was not chunky at all and was more of a liquid mess over loose rice. Flavor was greasy at best. Pork BBQ sauce was lacking and just didn't represent the south. Won't be back. Sweet tea, potato salad, and beans were really good. The BBQ sauce just isn't good.

We found the meat here tender. That's the best we can say about our visit. The sauce wasn't good, although it also wasn't bad; the meat didn't have a smoked taste, either. Cole slaw was below average but looked right. Service was as expected. Overall, it was mediocre, at best.
