The Bar-B-Q Smoke House
3231 Point Mallard Parkway
I have had some mighty fine BBQ in my day, from North Carolina to Georgia, South Carolina to Kentucky, but the BBQ plate at The Bar-B-Q Smoke House would be hard to beat. Truth be told, it’s the sauce. A white BBQ sauce unlike any other I have ever experienced.
The pork plate ($6.50) I had consisted of chopped pork BBQ, a toasted bun, BBQ beans, fries, two fried vegetable sticks, red slaw and hot sauce to suit your taste- mild, hot or extra hot.
The pork was melt in your mouth good, topped with the aforementioned white sauce, and washed down with the traditional Southern iced tea, it was some mighty fine eatin.’
Others in my party partook of the BBQ chicken and fried okra, with no complaints from nary a soul.
Other tempting menu items include the Baby Back Rib plate, the Turkey Leg plate, assorted burgers, dogs and sandwiches, and good ol’ home cooked pinto beans-sold however you want, pint, quart. 1/2 gallon or the gallon for $10.00. There’s homemade chili and Brunswick stew available during the winter months, and plenty of “family packs” available for picnics and get-togethers. There are plenty of desserts available, including homemade apple or peach pie, blackberry cobbler or banana pudding. . It’s all good.
The Bar-B-Q Smoke House is a “must visit” stop between Huntsville and Muscle Shoals. A joint that is small in size, but huge in taste.
