A co-worker from Alabama suggested Full Moon for lunch and it was an excellent choice. I ordered a smoked Turkey sandwich, fries, and a good ole' southern sweet Tea !!! They offer many trimmings (sides) to go with your main entree. The bbq loaded baked potatoes are super large and I'm sure they taste great. They have several locations in... More

Our only stop in the city while driving though. How lucky we were. Had the rib tips and the open faces BBQ sandwich with cole slaw. Easily the best cole slaw we have ever had. Meat was super tasty. The only draw back was all the pictures of Nick Saban, felt like we were in a shrine..... oh wait we... More

Based on the recommendation of the guy at the counter (I think he was owner or manager), I tried the outside pork sandwich. Lots of meat, and with plenty of bark. Because it came from the outside it was a bit dry, but that was easily offset by adding some of their excellent BBQ sauce.

Ribs were good, but have had better. And found out that people in Alabama must like cold Fries, and Mac and cheese.

The meals are BIG here and the ribs and meats are really good. It is a bit tricky to get in and out of, and the floor is a bit slippery, but the food is worth the trip.

I've eaten here over 200 times since my first visit in 2010!! Born and raised in NC, I found this to be the BEST BBQ I've had outside of NC!! I've had the brisket, pulled pork, ribs, and BBQ chicken over the years. I don't claim to be an expert on brisket or ribs. I definitely like Full Moon's, but... More

Nice people. Nice food. Nice everything! I love the atmosphere of the dine-in area. Memoriums on the walls give it that 'homey' feeling. The BBQ is self explanatory. You'll just have to see for yourself😋😉.

Thank TukiJ
