Archibald’s Food Truck
Arguably some of the best wings in West Alabama, the Archibald’s Food Truck can often be found around the community and at several local events! They are a locally owned barbecue food truck but their business (Archibald & Woodrow’s BBQ) has been around for over 60 years now. They were established in 1962 and is now being run by the third-generation! Over the years, the meat and sauce has stayed the same. Check out their Facebook page or their website to learn more.
