Our Story

It All Began With Southern-Styled ‘Que

Full Moon has a long, delicious history of great Southern-style 'que made in the time-honored, traditional way — with quality meats cooked low and slow over a hickory wood-fired pit and spiced with a mouthwatering, award-winning bar-b-que sauce.

David and Joe Maluff bought the original restaurant and have since grown the business while continuing a family-owned tradition that caters to folks who know great ‘que from the rest.

Our Hickory Wood-Fired Pits & Fresh Ingredients

The wood smoke from every Full Moon restaurant's fire pit shows the Birmingham-born brothers' commitment to top-notch bar-b-que. At the same time, they satisfy a variety of tastes with fresh salads, hand-breaded chicken tenders, farm-raised catfish, buffalo-style wings and overstuffed baked potatoes.

Everything at Full Moon is homemade from the famous Full Moon chow chow to the baked-fresh-each-day Half Moon cookies. Whether you eat in, get it to go or have your meal catered with our portable bar-b-que pits, it's all served with a smile and a healthy helping of true Southern hospitality.
