This place is consistently excellent! So yummy. I normally dont do slaw on my BBQ, but theirs is so good. Pork and beef arw both delish. All of their sauces are tasty and the Jojo's are really good. Two thumbs up! Well worth the short drive off of 59!

So when I moved to Fort Payne 23 years ago, this is the place that I had breakfast, lunch and dinner when in town. Best pulled pork sandwich, a go to any day you are hungry.

Came for the Jo Jo's, was not all that impressed. Tasted more liked fried tomatoes than potato's. BBQ was on the dry side and the sauce was a strong vinegar based sauce.

Whenever I come into Ft Payne I love coming here! This place is very small, maybe will seat 20-25 people? Order at counter, and have a seat and wait. All I have had from here is the smoked pork, and the JoJo's. The meat is always perfectly smoked! JoJo's are sliced potatoes (very thinly sliced medallions) and they are battered... More

When we moved to Fort Payne over 30 years ago, this was the only BBQ restaurant in the area. Since then several have opened but the BBQ Place is still one of the best and the only one to serve JoJo's.

This is an order at the counter place no frills eatery. Turkey salad was fresh with plenty of turkey. Unsweet tea was not very fresh but OK. Wait on yourself and bus your own table.

Holy Cow, or pig in this case. It's the best BBQ around. Plus its the best Sauce, Chicken Fingers, Jo-Jo's ( thin Fried Potatoes), and chicken sauce in the WORLD. Friendly and not fast food. A hometown favorite. When I die, bury me with a gallon of chicken sauce. It's that good.

Excellent barbecue and they have some of the best chicken fingers around. The barbecue salad is good to go and they have a friendly staff. One of the better barbecue restaurants around.
