Full house for new Full Moon Bar-B-Que in Trussville
From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — Full Moon Bar-B-Que’s newest location planned a “quiet opening” in Trussville on Saturday. But the smoke from the new restaurant’s 30-foot chimney betrayed them and the crowds have been pouring in since the doors opened.
The Chalkville Mountain Road location, which is operated locally by Rich Yokeley, is the 15th location for David and Joe Maluff. The restaurant is in front of the former Kmart building.
Known as the “Best Little Pork House in Alabama,” Full Moon offers all of the barbecue staples such as pork, ribs, chicken and beef brisket, but also has hamburgers, hot dogs and wings on the menu. The famous Half Moon cookies are on the Alabama Tourism’s “100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama Before You Die” list.
The crowds moved through the order line quickly and, despite the large number of diners, the sizable dining room turns over tables quickly, which has avoided a standing wait for seats.
The restaurant is open Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. There is also a drive-thru window.
