We got a single combo lunch plate with ribs and pulled pork. That was enough for 2 or more. Great slow cooked meat, delicious BBQ sauce. All the good things about a BBQ joint! And the staff and owner are super friendly. Can't wait to go back!

The best ribs ever and the most friendly accommodating servers and owner ever, too. Graffiti covered walls, but not crude. Extremely welcoming staff, from the cooks to servers to owner. Wish it was close to home so I could get a fix. They obviously start with good meat and have the smoking down to an art. Others in our party... More

An old house-not much to look at. Nice people, very small place, BBQ is only dry smoked meat, not BBQ cooked on like good q. Dry smoked meat is NOT BBQ!!!

Lunch rib platter had 3 ribs, only one was good. Pulled meats looked better. Potato salad and cole slaw are very sweet. Just not to my liking. Friendly, local spot. Limited seating.

Delicious BBQ. Great service. Nice atmosphere. We were passing through Alabama headed home from Destin and found The Brick Pit on Trip Advisor. Certainly a great find!

I got the pulled pork plate. It only comes with one piece of bread. Wish it came with 2. There was WAY too much sauce on the pulled pork. And the Banana pudding was blan. I do love this place. Pulledpork was good, just needed a little less sauce. And maybe add a little something to the banana pudding.

First off. This is a restaurant in an old house. The inside walls and ceiling is covered in graffiti. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. The pulled pork had a good smokey flavor. The beans and tater salad was great. You don't want to miss the Nana pudding!

This is one of those places that goes with the adage, "Don't judge a book by it's cover!" Don't judge this place by it's inside decor either, or you will miss out on some great BBQ! Graffiti may be your decor style, but if not, you will have a TV for some distraction while you enjoy some great food! When... More

My son-in-law from the Philadelphia area can't come to .Mobile without a Brick Pit visit, we've tried other barbecue out on him, but none compares to the BP. Very casual atmosphere, where everyone adorns the walls, ceiling, etc. with their name and message.. serves excellent slow smoked barbecue, as rib slabs, big sandwiches and smaller sandwiches, slider size, as well...

They actually smoke the meat on site, you can smell it as you drive up. Best Bar b que I have eaten in Mobile. The sides were all very good, and the workers were all very friendly.
