If you’re heading to the beach this Summer and your looking for the best barbecued butts in the Southeast, cruise by Phil’s B-B-Q, in Eufaula, Alabama. Good, fast, and friendly is the name of the game.
Phil’s is a block off the main road and well worth the detour. The large dining room can seat the largest of families–just pull the tables together and you’re in for a treat.
The decor is local memorabilia hanging on painted cinder block walls. The walls are also adorned with photos from over the years of the many famous patrons who have walked through the doors and enjoyed southern barbecue at its best. At Phil’s B-B-Q, Elvis has not left the building.
Standard fair is the Chicken or Pork Barbecue Plate, Big Boy Platter, 1/2 Pound Plate, or Chopped BBQ by the Pound! If you like ribs, like I do, Phil’s offers the following:
- 1/2 Slab of pork ribs with bread, 2 sides, sauce, and a pickle
- Slab of ribs
- Rib Sandwich
- Hungry Man’s Platter – 3 ribs, chopped BBQ, 1/4 chicken, bread, 2 sides, sauce, and a pickle
If you’re into Low Carb, don’t worry–you can get meat with slaw or a salad. And, if your kids are not into barbecue, Phil’s has hamburgers, corn dogs, and chicken strips to name few.
All this talk of smoked barbecue got you thirsty? Well, when you’re in the South you have to drink SWEET tea! We’re talking the real deal folks, not that fake brown fruity liquid out of the soda dispensers. If the tea is too sweet for you, take a walk down memory lane while popping the top off an ice cold RC Cola, Orange Crush, Grape Crush, or A&W Root Beer! Ah, I remember them well.
Finally, be sure to grab a piece of homemade cake to go. Cake not your style? Then try a piece of Southern Pecan Pie. It goes great with a hot cup of coffee.
Yep, start your vacation right. Swing into Phil’s B-B-Q in Eufaula with the family and start making memories.
