The cutest little down home bar b que restaurant to stop for a quick bite. The building is tucked around the corner and easy to miss. You order outside and either take the food to go, or step to the side where there are wooden picnic tables and benches under a screened area to eat. Nothing fancy, but very, very... More

After several days at the beach we were looking for a local BBQ joint, we came across Down South. It's less than a 1/4 mile off Highway 59 on CR 10. They are a take out place ONLY - no seating. So we ordered our food to take back and watch the sunset on the beach. I thought their turkey... More

From the friendly service through the perfection of the meat cook all the way to the incredible home made bbq sauce, this place is phenominal. If you want the perfect southern meal with an excellent variety to choose from, this is your goal. I be going back time and time again as long as they are open.

What a great place!! The food was amazing, throbs so tender the neat fell off the bone. The Camp Stew was one for the recipe books. The quaint screened in dining area was cooled with fans and very comfortable. The staff was friendly, talkative and their enthusiasm about their food and their process was enjoyable. Felt like you were at... More

With BBQ places all over the area I had to find a place worth patronizing. Down South is our first and last choice :) The Ribs are out of this world!! Sides are amazing. I've been known to skip the meats in order to enjoy the mustard potato salad and beans, ( baked or green). We have a large family... More

My most favorite barbecue in South Alabama! Pork sandwich with slaw is perfect, the smoke flavor pork and vinegar based sauce is divine. I had there camp stew today, it was good, needed some Lima beans thrown in, lol. Only downside is they take cash only and no public restrooms. I would eat here a thousand times over.

Locally owned and it shows! Great food and customer service. Had them cater several events and everyone loved the food. Also, quick and easy to pick up after work.

This is just slightly off the beaten path, but we read the reviews and ended up making the trip to try it. This is a family owned business, they were very friendly even though we came close to the end of the day. Highly recommend the jalapeño corn bread and mustard potato salad as sides. Loved the slaw too. My... More

The BBQ here is very good, I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for good barbecue. However the big surprise here is the Cornbread Barbecue Sandwich (or something like that). It is amazing! I won't explain what it is because it sounds odd, but it is a MUST on the list of thing to try.
