Enjoy a classic, no-fuss barbecue meal at Brother’s BBQ, where you can relax in a friendly environment and conquer large portions of your favorite meats.

Brother’s BBQ seeks to maintain an old school approach to the southern BBQ tradition. Ample amounts of oak and hickory are used to create the restaurant’s uniquely savory flavor, as well as an enticing scent that will have your mouth watering the moment you arrive. The sauce offered here is sweeter than that served at some of the region’s other BBQ joints, but many visitors regard this as a definite plus. Despite this sweetness, the sauce has a kick that cannot be denied.

Multiple options are available for enjoying your meal. The restaurant’s premises are by no means fancy, but they’re comfortable enough to ensure a positive dining experience. Otherwise, feel free to order for carry-out. This is a great option if you intend to order one of the available family specials, which can feed between four and eight hungry people.

If you’re not quite hungry enough to handle a family special, you can also take the by-the-pound approach to order the restaurant’s delectable meats and sides. In keeping with the restaurant’s old-school vibes, carry-out orders are placed over the phone.

While many visitors opt for the restaurant’s family specials, young visitors are also welcome to order their favorites from the children’s menu. There, they’ll find such staples as chicken fingers, hot dogs, and burgers, as well as a barbecue pork sandwich that even the pickiest eaters are sure to love.

A few of our favorite menu items include the following:

BBQ Nachos
Whether split with loved ones as an appetizer or eaten in place of a standard meal, these nachos are likely to spark some serious cravings. This appetizer can be topped with chicken or pork, both of which are equally delicious.

Pulled Pork Sandwich
The standard pulled pork sandwich served at Brother’s BBQ may not be fancy, but it certainly is tasty. It features tender meat piled in a bun with the perfect amount of sauce — but extra sauce is also available on the side. The sandwich is accompanied by your choice of a side; favorites include mac & cheese, Texas toast, potato salad, and collard greens. For a small additional fee, you can up the ante and create a jumbo sandwich. Most visitors, however, find the standard size sufficiently filling.

Brisket Platter
Juicy but not fatty, the brisket at Brother’s BBQ is definitely worth ordering. It will melt in your mouth, leaving you craving more. Like all platter meals, it is served with your choice of two sides.

Ribs
Whether ordered as a half slab, full slab, or as part of a platter meal, the ribs at Brother’s BBQ will put a smile on your face — and a lot of barbecue sauce on your fingers. Smoked to perfection, these giant ribs are fall off the bone good.

Homemade Peach Cobbler
No classic southern BBQ meal is complete without a classic southern dessert. You’ll instantly fall in love with this delightfully sweet peach cobbler, which comes with a scoop of ice cream.

Brother’s BBQ should be your go-to Pensacola destination for no-frills, delicious barbecue. One visit, and you’ll be eager for more.

Insider Tips:
– If you love the sauce that grants Brother’s BBQ meals so much flavor, you’re in luck — it can be purchased at the restaurant, where it’s available by the pint or by the quart.
