Fish Plate

I ordered the fish plate because I had never tasted Southern Fried fish before. The fish was moist, tender, and flaky. It was not greasy or fishy tasting, but had a mild flavor. I really loved the coleslaw. On my next visit I want to try the pulled pork sandwich with that delicious creamy coleslaw. I think it would be a better choice for takeout, since I won't be able to eat it until I get home.

Smoked Sausage Plate

I love Tennessee BBQ and this is the best we have in the valley. My recommendation is to try anything they have with their infamous Whiskey BBQ sauce. I will return for this perfect lunch over and over again.

Loaded Smoked Fries

This was the BEST barbecue my family and I have ever had!! We are from Paris, Tennessee and we have several local BBQ joints in our area, but they don't compare to The Alley's. We got the ribs, loaded tacos, and loaded baked potato, and there was no way that we could eat it all! The service was over the top, and the chef was on the top of his game on the evening that we were there (7/1/20). I've had some Jacksonians tell about (and have taken me to) other Jackson BBQ places, but none compare to West Alley. We'll be back, and will bring others to experience this 'que!

The fish was moist and juicy on the inside, perfectly seasoned on the outside dipped with a crispy breading. Absolutely addicted!

Southern Fried Fish

I have been going to West Alley ever since they were recommended to me by a friend in 2017! I LOVE their fried Catfish. It's the best catfish I have tried in Jackson. The waiters are always friendly, my food is always hot, and they offer great customer service.

Combo Platter

Delish... My pallet met it's crave. The meat was so tender and moist that I refused to share! The flavor runs throughout the meat not just on the surface. This dish was more than what my pallet was waiting for!

Pulled Pork Sandwich

Great smoke flavor with good bark and melty texture to boot. You need to try the whiskey sauce but the pork alone has great taste!

New to the area and just tried west alley out tonight so it had to be take out. It was all delicious!!! I've been looking for tasty ribs since moving to the south with not much luck. So happy to have found west alley. Had ribs and tried almost all sides and an appetizer. I had one happy family tonight. We will probably be back by the weekend lol

Smoked Sausage Plate

We love West Alley so much! They are authentic and genuine. The food is made with passionate devotion and love. We love and admire Jim Dandy. He hugs us every time we come in and asks how we are doing with full details. We bring everyone that comes to visit us to this spot! The best BBQ in the universe. We are thankful for a second family. Thank you.

Loaded Fries Pulled Pork or Chicken

Let me tell you about a new type of love. These loaded BBQ fries are the real definition of love. These are not your average straight or crinkle cut fries but these thick spiral cut fries, I like mine with that lovely cheese sauce piled high with that slow smoked flavored pulled pork with mild bbq sauce and sour cream. They have the BEST loaded BBQ fries I've EVER had! Thank you for showing me real BBQ love!

As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a beautiful woman, she said she was the owners mother. Food and Southern Hospitality at its best. Especially the wings, Mac and cheese, loaded baked potato, Brisket and pulled pork. We will definitely be back! Great cocktails too!

Loaded Nachos or Fries

They absolutely load the plate with brisket, pulled pork, etc. you name it! Each bite is absolutely heavenly coated in cheese, and to top it all off, whether drenched or drizzled in barbecue sauce, it adds a delicious lasting taste.

The Alley Salad

This salad is fresh with lots of meat, not just any meat! The pork was smoked and made the salad so complete. This will become regular order for us!

I lived in Memphis for 23 years, & had a lot of BBQ, from famous places. I had the ribs, on my first visit 2 days ago, & they are the most delicious, "legit" ribs I have ever put in my mouth. I was worried, as I'm not a fan of dry ribs, usually, but I couldn't stop eating the tender, fall off the bone ribs! I also loved the baked beans, they're so soft, rich, & flavorful. I'm going back tonight for more❤️

Oh Baby! So good, you dont need sauce, but if you want some sauciness, get the Tennessee whiskey. Great people, great service
