Our Story

The Demetri's BBQ tradition started in 1961 as El Rancho BBQ, one block from the location today. 1973 was the year Demetri pronounced his move to the new location. Along with all the great recipes, his loyal customers followed. At the time, Birmingham was defining its style in barbeque and Demetri's marked its spot along with Golden Rule and Olie's. The restaurant has been placed in the Birmingham area for over 50 years. People come from all over to experience and enjoy the mouthwatering taste of Demetri's, whether it's meeting with friends or taking food home to enjoy with the family, we always love seeing your smiles. The bond between us and the familiar faces is influential to our dedication for pleasing our guests. The importance of new and returning guests is vital to getting the word out for our flavorful home cooking, so come see us today!
