Local eatery featured in Alabama tourism book


The Alabama Tourism Department recently released a new book and travel guide titled “Alabama Barbeque: Delicious Road Trips,” which features a section about Pruett’s Bar-B-Q in Gadsden. 

Former Southern Living travel editor Annette Thompson writes about 75 barbeque joints across the state and former Southern Living photographer Art Meripol complements the stories with mouthwatering photos.

Well-known for their ribs and Sweet Potato Fluff, which is served as a side or a dessert, Pruett’s has been in business since 1976. The family-owned and family-style restaurant attracts diners from throughout the region when the ribs get smoking and you may find yourself in for a bit of a wait if you get there late.

The 126-page hardcover book was produced by the Alabama Media Group in cooperation with the Alabama Tourism Department and it covers the state by geographic regions.

The book is available at Books-A-Million stores and online at amazon.com.

Pruett’s Bar-B-Q is located at 1617 Rainbow Drive. The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Monday through Saturday. For more information, call 256-547-4118.
