The ribs were tender and plenty of flavor, great with the mustard BBQ sauce. Liked the hush puppies that were a little sweet and the coleslaw. Pulled pork was also good not too smoky.

My dad caters BBQ for a living so we usually try out BBQ joints when vacationing. Bama Que didn't let us down. The ribs and chicken were quite tasty and the potato salad snd fried okra were good too. We ate outside under the shelter.
