PELHAM – The Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting for Full Moon Bar-B-Que on Tuesday, June 6.

The restaurant, located at 2252 Pelham Parkway in the Pelham Parkway shopping center located at the corner of Alabama 119 and U.S. 31, will be the fourth location to be opened by Ajlo Foods and the 13th Full Moon in the state. Ajlo Foods is co-owned by Naseem Ajlouny and Chase Ajlouny.

Ajlo Foods also owns Full Moon restaurants in Alabaster, McCulla and Jasper.

Naseem Ajlouny, who grew up in Pelham, said he’s been trying to open a restaurant in the city for 12 years. Prior to the opening of Full Moon on Monday, May 22, he said he tried two other times to bring the barbecue eatery to Pelham.

“I think we’re in a prime spot,” he said. “We’re the only barbecue spot on this side of Pelham.”
