“nice place with great food”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

There was a review in the local paper the weekend we were in the address and decided to try it. We were not disappointed! Split a rack of ribs that were some of the best we've had. Very friendly staff and quick service. Had sweet potato fries which were excellent and the okra and tomatoes which were not that good. Brownies for desert. Will return, want to try the bbq

“Celebrated my birthday here with awesome catfish!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

17 of us descended on Hanks for my birthday. We all had different things, but no one was disappointed. The ribs fell off the bone, the catfish was to die for, and the collard greens were heaven! The staff was very friendly. The place was clean and service was fast despite the fact it was crowded! Will return often!

“Hank's is great”

We stopped at Hank's after dropping someone off at the airport and we're so glad we did. We really liked the food. We'll be back again!

“Catfish and BBQ”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Taking some customers out to eat they picked Hank's said the BBQ was great. However the 6 of us all ordered the catfish. If you like catfish fried this was good. However I suspect it was not American farm raised but imported. Prices are reasonable for a lunch place and the place looks like an original mom and pop establishment with plenty of knickknacks all over the place. Service was fast, food was hot to the table and it was very clean. Many places like this can be rather dirty but still the food will be good. This is not healthy eating for lunch but sometimes you just want some real comfort food to serve your carving for something greasy and good. I would go back to Hank's but since I live in Alabama where we have two of the top BBQ restaurants in the country would go again for the catfish.

“Very casual but unique”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

It is a really unique BBQ setting. Very casual atmosphere. You can sit at picnic tables. Lots of smoked dishes. I had all you can eat shrimp and beans and coleslaw. Everything was delicious. My husband had the pork corn on cob and macaroni. The corn was watery but that was the only small thing.
