Very difficult to make a booking due to its popularity. We asked when they had availability and booked accordingly. Not a place for vegetarians. This place is strictly for meat eaters. It’s certainly an eating experience and the various meat dishes were all very tasty. Service was very good. Bring your own drinks. There is a place next door where you can buy drinks to bring in. Excellent!

Service, food, everything about the evening was great. We did the tasting menu, it was awesome. However, everything (apart from the foie gras) that we ate, was beef.

The salads were good, as well as the beans. The various things we had, came out HOT and perfectly done. My friend said the filet with the foie gras was his choice for his last meal.

My only one complaint is the name. Why "Alamaba" if it's not Alabama-style BBQ, it's NOT even Southern BBQ! BBQ in the USA, is brisket, pork (shoulder or ribs), and hot links. And, it's all about "low and slow".

Alabama means pork, usually pulled-pork, with sauce (tomato based or vinegar, depending on where in Alaba you at). This... sadly, was not that. It also means meat, slowly smoked over oak, hickory or pecan. This, was also, not in evidence, as I don't believe they used any aromatic woods, based on the smell in the restaurant, but don't hold me to it. There was also no evidence of a rub used on anything.

I had an idea, before going, based on the menu, so I can't say I was disappointed, just bemused by the choice of a name for the restaurant.

We had a great meal, even the deserts were good. The best is the tasting menu, just sit back and let them bring you MEAT!!!

Remember, BYOB, and bring cash, they don't take CC's. And make sure to make rezzies way in advance.

We will be back, for sure, the place is awesome.

You can even bring your own wine and focus on the meat. It looks simple but very professional and recommended to get their recommendations
