“Fine BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Full meals or quick sandwich, we always leave happy. Sauce recipe goes back to 1840's. If you're really in a hurry, call ahead for takeout. Parking lot is on AL 22 so you don't have to turn on County Rd. 46.

“A blend of flavors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Everyone argues about the barbecue style they prefer, but Hancocks BBQ is a perfect balance between the Lexington Style of BBQ from north carolina and the traditional alabama bbq flavors. Coming from someone who grew up with north carolina BBQ, I rarely enjoy BBQ from alabama, except for Hancocks. It is old school, they keep the menu simple and there are always a spectrum of people dining in. There are blue collar workers and people who come from the country club. People of different races all love Hancocks. I would reccomend the barbecue plate with cole slaw and potato salad and a heaping of the butter bread they serve along with it. There was a fabulous review of the country restaurant in Garden and Gun as well.
