Hoover, Alabama's Golden Rule Barbecue is Alabama's best kept barbecue secret. The limited menu is a blessing in disguise: rather than trying to focus on many different things, they focus on what they do best: pork and beef. The ambiance of the place helps create the true experience: views of the pit and kitchen area from any place inside the resturant, the smells of the meat on the pit and the rythmic chopping sounds put a soul at ease. With Mrs. Ohma's to-die-for sweet tea, rich and flavorful meat, and those luscious apple turn-overs, there is no better place in the Birmingham metro area for barbecue.
The Golden Rule is located at 1571 Montgomery Hwy in Hoover, Alabama (35216). It's phone number is (205) 823-7770. If you are in Birmingham, pay them a visit. If you're in town when the weather has turned cooler, ask if Nick has any of his special chili on hand. You won't be disapointed.
