Long Description:
We had the best barbecue we've ever had in Alabama at this very humble neighborhood barbecue joint in an economically disadvantaged neighborhood in Selma.

DO NOT BE PUT OFF BY THE ROUGH NEIGHBORHOOD -- This is a safe place for anyone to come eat, and the barbecue is absolutely delicious and served up in generous portions.

There's a reason that Lanny's BBQ Spot is in the Alabama barbecue Hall of Fame: their pork ribs and barbecue is just that good, and the family has been serving it up daily since 1946.

This is a small family-owned barbecue joint with about 6 booths and a walk-up counter. Most folks come and take their food to go, but the dining room is very pleasant and folks are friendly, especially to the obvious out-of-towners (like us).

From my Yelp review of Lannie's: (visit link)

"OMG This is the best pork BBQ I've had in Alabama, hands down!

This humble cinderblock BBQ restaurant in an economically depressed neighborhood in Selma has been putting pigs in smokers and serving them up on plates since 1946. But while the neighborhood has clearly seen better days, we never worried about the setting for one minute and wouldn't hesitate to come back.

I ordered the rib plate, which I expected would have 2-3 short pork ribs on it (like we get them in Texas). NOPE - this is the South, where it's ALL about the pig!! I got 4 thick pork ribs, each 7 inches long, served with delicious baked beans and crispy fried okra. Heaven on a plate!

My daughter had the fried bologna sandwich. Mmmmmmm I had not had fried bologna since I was a kid, and I don't know why? This was a beautiful sandwich - smoked bologna crisped on the flat top grill, served on grilled white bread with homemade mac and cheese and green beans on the side. DELICIOUS!!

They have won a bunch of awards over the years for their BBQ, and deserve every one.

5 eat here NOW stars"
