35 miles further up the road we approached an advertisement for Dale's BBQ, a guiding light that directed us towards our next destination on our way to Big Bob's Barbecue in Decatur. The stand-alone restaurant houses a double lane drive-thru to better serve its mobile customer base since there is no inside eating area. Dale's is the first barbecue restaurant I visited that offered the mystic Alabama white barbecue sauce that I had read little about. Knowing that the main component of the sauce is mayonaisse made me a little doubtful whehter it would complement the flavors of a smoked pork sandwich. Our server in the window was excited to talk us about the restaurant. At the time, we didn't know how many barbecue joints we'd stop at on our way with the exception of our most anticipated stop (Big Bob's) at the tail end of the trip, so we went rather light and split a large pork sandwich. Rather than share a sandwich in a car, we decided it would be best to pull over, eat our sandwich at the provided wooden tables set-up out front, and convince our server to sit outside with us and chat us up about the restaurant and her love life.
