Tried the Lakeshore location - pork was very greasy. Won't eat there again.

Costa's is famous for their sauce. The meat has always left something to be desired. But it's better than some. The quality of BBQ in Birmingham has gone way down - so I would put them in the middle of the pack.

I gave Costa's another try last week - just as greasy as before. Won't be back.

I've eaten at several different locations. As mentioned above, the food is greasy tasting and not very well prepared. I don't like that sauce either. Can't believe they sell it in stores.

Lakeshore location. Overpriced and could not chew the barbecue because it was overcooked. I can get three ribs, fries, Texas toast, and small side of baked beans in Cali for the same price I paid for ribs on a bun with an order of fries. Speaking of fries,they were too salty and dry. Not good.

New management of the costas off lakeshore has really stepped it up you oils tell the meat had been well prepared and seasoned
I definitely will be back well worth the money
