Lucious ribs and pulled pork. Southern style and not over seasoned! Love the coleslaw and portions are generous. Not fancy but you go there for the BBQ and you wont be disappointed.

We had a small group try out The Brick Pit on a recommendation - we were not disappointed! The food was excellent. Great pulled pork, potato salad, beans! Banana pudding is excellent. Fun atmosphere - we will be back next time we are in town!

Had my son's birthday dinner at the Brick Pit. Excellent food. Well known by the locals around Mobile. People have come and gone and signed their names all over the walls and ceiling. Interesting just looking at all the signatures of people that have come...More

I don't recall a kids menu, but I would think, based on how friendly And helpful the staff was, that they wouldn't work with you to feed your kids something fun and delicious.
