The Mobile area has been hurting for years for a great BBQ place. Is this the answer. Not quite, almost, but it's pretty good and among the best in the area. I had a pulled pork sandwich. The meat was not quite smoky enough, but still pretty good. I liked their sauce. It's pretty good. Their beans are pretty good, not great, but good enough. Overall, this is a good BBQ place and probably as good or better than any other BBQ joint within 50 miles. It's in Daphne on Bayfront road in an old house that's been remodeled into a BBQ joint. I'll be back...

Overall, I recommend this place as a good BBQ joint, if in the Mobile area.

There are now 4 BBQ joints that are pretty good and tied for first place in the Mobile/Baldwin county area:

Moe's Original BBQ - Daphne
The Brick Pit - Mobile
LA BBQ - Summerdale
Dreamland - Mobile (RIBS ONLY)

Other than these 3, I've not been to another place that's decent.

Thanks for the heads up on Moe's. I'll give it a try soon. You're right on about the lack of "great" BBQ places in this area. If you get to Pensacola, a new place opened up on Nine Mile Rd (HWY 90) called Fatboy's BBQ. If you are familiar with the area, it is located where the old Ray Cranford's BBQ restaurant used to be. I stopped in to try it. Had the combo plate, ribs & brisket. It was good, not great, but good. Portions were kind of small & no rub on the ribs.

I went back and gave Moe's Original in Daphne another try. It was better than my first trip. I ordered the pork sandwich and asked for outside meat this time. While the meat did not appear to be outside meat, it was quite smoky and good. This was a very good pork sandwich. Their sides need a little upgrading, but their BBQ is very good.
I would have to say they have the best BBQ in the Mobile and Pensacola area, without a doubt.

I went back recently and quality control was not in play. I had the ribs and chicken. The chicken was not bad, not great. The ribs were awful. I think they were too old. I was really disappointed and don't feel I can recommend this place any longer.
