Full Moon Bar-B-Que

Home to our second Full Moon location, our Hoover restaurant is located on the corner of Patton Chapel Road and Highway 31. Join us for lunch or dinner seven days a week and enjoy one of our mouth-watering meats slow cooked over our hickory wood-fired pit with our famous bbq sauce or chow chow. Be sure to add one of our tasty, homemade trimmings and some of our Half Moon cookies made fresh daily. If you’re looking for something a little different be sure to try one of our kickin’ cheese sandwiches or a load potato filled with tasty favorites.

Half-Moon Cookies

Once known as Pat James' Full Moon Bar-B-Que, the restaurant was bought in 1997 by brothers David and Joe Maluff. Full Moon now boasts nine locations, including the original on Birmingham's Southside.

Although Full Moon is known for its smoked meat, customers flock to the counter and drive-thru window for its famous Half Moon cookies. Made from scratch daily and filled with chocolate chips and pecans, each cookie has just the right amount of crisp. Every single one is hand-dipped into rich, melted milk chocolate, giving it it's distinctive "half moon" appearance. Half Moon cookies are also available by the tin for distant fans or those locals who just can't get enough.
