Our Inverness bar-b-que location is just south of 459 on Highway 280. Come in and enjoy some of our mouth-watering bar-b-que ribs slow cooked over our hickory wood-fired pit. We have several mouthwatering sandwiches including chicken, turkey and pork. If you’re wanting something a little different pick a potato from our baker patch and add one of our 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.
