This is the perfect place to go for lunch if you are checking out downtown Birmingham. The meat is smoky and tender and the sauce is delicious. The food is very affordable and the staff is friendly. Definitely recommended!

Visited Birmingham for the day. I met a local in the park who highly recommended this eatery. By far the tastiest ribs I've ever had! It deserves more awards. I devoured my potato salad and coleslaw as well. The owner of this family-run business is...More
