We absolutely LIVE to go here anytime we are in Mobile. There is no other bbq or smokehouse in the world that can come close to The Brick Pit. I usually have the pulled pork sandwich but decided on a full rack of ribs this time. Talk about mouth-watering good. The taste is indescribable....so damned delicious and tender and smokey and just plain good! Keep up the good work!!

I didn't enjoy my meal. The sauce was horrible. It is not the TRUE southern BBQ sauce. It seemed like it has too much vinegar. Thankfully they had the sauce on the side, but even the dry ribs weren't flavorful. I had to use some BBQ sauce I had at home to make them at least decent.

From Our Editors

The Brick Pit’s owner, Bill Armbrecht, firmly believes that great barbecue can't be rushed. Open the red doors of his massive smoker—"Big Red"— and you’ll uncover juicy slabs of ribs, chicken, and pork that have been roasting anywhere from 6 to 30 hours. Bill coats each cut of meat in his legendary spicy barbecue sauce, which was lauded by reporters from Southern Living and relished by Adam Richman on Man v. Food. For a sweet finish, Bill and his chefs whip up housemade banana pudding each day from scratch.

After ordering barbecue platters from the back window, guests retreat into the lively dining room. The walls are decorated in the doodles, praise, and thesis papers of the hundreds of guests who've passed through the restaurant's doors along with framed awards and glowing news articles.
