As always good BBQ, fantastic greens, potato salad uses different style dressings. Cole Slaw fresh, not real sweet but sweet enough to put on top of BBQ.

We were headed to eat at Top of the River in Gadsden, but, to our disappointment, it was closed. So we turned around and saw Pruett's across the street and decided to eat there.

We are frequent patrons of Pruett's, because not only is the BBQ good, but there are always a selection of good vegetables and desserts. I've never had a bad meal here, food is delicious, and service is always friendly, quick and attentive.

Everything is wonderful at Pruett' s!!! My favorite is the sweet potato fluff and the pulled pork. My husband loves the catfish. Decor is country fun. Staff very friendly.

Went to this restaurant because of Flipkeys ratings. It was great. Food was fantastic. Very tasty and seasoned well. I had the BBQ beef plate which was a good size portion. The coleslaw was outstanding. My wife had the BBQ half chicken and it was as good as mine. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommend to everyone I'm the Gasden, Alabama... More

Don't think I've ever had Pruett's BBQ because I always order "1/4 white" fried chicken!!! I have driven from Georgia on a weekend (relatives in Gadsden) JUST to eat 1/4 white at Pruett's. It is THAT good!!! The girls serving are awesome and super friendly too!!!

I started traveling to Gadsden for business and have been here three times. The fried chicken is OUTSTANDING! All their sides are great too: creamed corn YUM, green beans, BBQ beans, sweet potato fluff YUM! The wait staff is very friendly and very respectful. This will be a stop every time I'm in Gadsden.

My business associates and I eat here, from time to time, the food is good while the service is hit or miss. They have recently started advertising their plate of the day, "Chicken and Dumplings 11:00 until gone". Which sounds horrible to me, like the later you arrive the older your food is.
