Demetris was my first stop after landing in Birmingham. I naturally went with the open faced pulled pork sandwich topped with cole slaw. It was wonderful. They use a vinegar-based sauce for their pulled pork that was purely delightful to the taste buds. I have...More

Wings and ribs at Demetris were really good, as well as their unique vinegar based dressing for their slaw. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Great local barbecue joint!

Claim to fame voted by Playboy best BBQ in the South. So there. Delish. Grilled veggies are a must. Onion rings and hamburger steak great flavor.

They also have a good southern food menu (pot roast, fried chicken etc.). It is a no frills, good food and good service kind of place. It is very much a local favorite so if you want lunch, get there early!

Every thing on the menu is Excellent! The Greek salad, Fried Okra, the Country steak w/gravy and also their dessert are probably one of the best around. I highly recommend going here! You will not be disappointed.

Demetris was recommended by friends for breakfast, and it was a home run. The atmosphere on a Friday morning was a mix of local business types and European visitors. The restaurant has an award from Playboy Magazine for Best Southern Breakfast. There are lots of...More

I used to live in Birmingham in the early 2000's and LOVED their grilled chicken sandwich. I loved it so much that the day I moved back in 2013 this restaurant was my first stop! The food is great! Service is a little slow if...More
