Had combo loaded baked potato like I always do. Never been disappointed whether eat in or take out! Biggest difference is that to go has restricted sauce that they send you home with.

Had the half slab of ribs plate for lunch. The portion was very large. The ribs were good, greasier than normal, and not taste-intensive. The sides of baked beans and slaw were very good. Service and price were excellent.

Best to go lunch or dinner is a pork potato. Ask for some white sauce and you will have a real treat that is quite filling. Great drive through service

If you are looking for good basic barbecue in Huntsville, Lawlers is your place. I went to the Whitesburg location recently, and ordered a baked potato topped with cheese and barbecue. Great taste, but WOW, I did not know that potatoes grew that big. It was enough for three or four people. Order that only if you are really hungry.... More

I must say the best part of your review is the line where you say "You KNOW you are welcome". That is our hope each time a customer walks into one of our little bbq joints. And YES those potatoes come from the valley of the valley of the jolly ho ho green giant! Please come back to see us... More

A must have Loaded Potato from Lawlers. What better thing than to be in North Alabama and eating bbq at a gas station. Lawlers is awesome and the loaded potato is a must have.

I love the option of a drive thru window for slow cooked food! The beef brisket is wonderful and no one can beat the fresh, homemade pies.

Description
Using old-fashioned recipes and time honored traditions, we still smoke barbecue real slow in our USDA facility in Tennessee. This insures the highest quality and consistency so that every customer at every location gets the same tasty, tender, juicy barbecue. We have developed systems and procedures that allow us to offer you almost fast food speed of service...yet everything is made as you order! We always have plenty...so if you need a big order at the last minute...we have you covered! In an age where most pork barbecue is cut, chopped, or ground by machine...we still hand-pull or "pick" the meat from the bone. Sure it's harder and takes longer...but our "pickers" (as we affectionately call them!) are our best quality control. Their trained and caring touch leaves only the leanest, moistest pork...lightly sauced to let the great hickory flavor burst through in every bite!! Guess you could say...we keep pickin' so you'll keep grinnin' The truth of the matter... Because we are just a "little barbecue joint" ...not near as fancy or as famous as some...we know we must try harder to earn your business. We want to be faster, cleaner, and tastier. We cannot be everything to everybody, so we just want to be everything to YOU. At LawLers Barbecue we believe in "cooked slow...served fast! We think you deserve Tickled Pink Service! We love to win contests...butt we REALLY win when you become a regular customer! If you haven't tried us yet...what are you waitin' for?
