We came here after a lacrosse tournament with a load of hungry men. The perfect place for those guys! The food was delicious and very fresh and the service was great! The baseball hats all over the place are an awesome touch too!

Quick service and good BBQ. My husband and I shared a sample w/hush puppies, cole slaw and BBQ baked beans which by the way were delicious. The original red BBQ sauce was my favorite but the mustard was a close second.

We were a little disappointed in Phil's. We ate there 3 summers ago and really enjoyed it but something changed since then. We had the Phil's Sampler and the meat didn't have a smoky flavor at all and we had to drench it in sauce....More

Phil's has great barbecue and super friendly staff. The owner is an Alabama Alum and you can tell on one of his walls. The place has hats and license plates from around the US. People have apparently donated to Phil's collection. They serve local craft...More
