HOOVER – Full Moon Bar-B-Que announced the much-anticipated reopening of their Inverness/U.S. 280 location.

The restaurant underwent complete renovations to the interiors and exteriors following fire damage from May 2018.

Located at 4635 U.S. 280, this store was Full Moon’s third location out of their now 15 locations across Alabama. The newly renovated store will offer the same quick service dining experience and full menu featuring all of the BBQ restaurant fan favorites that customers have come to love, as well as some new food and beverage items in the works. The eight-head draft system offering domestic and local crafts is positioned to be a crowd pleaser.

“We are excited for the much-anticipated reopening of our popular Inverness/U.S. 280 location,” said David Maluff, co-owner of Full Moon BBQ. “After the destruction from the fire to this store, we looked at this as an opportunity to rebuild showcasing our new interior and exterior design concept.”

General Manager Coy Ancelet will be leading a team of 45 employees.

Full Moon Bar-B-Que has been in operation since 1986. The Maluff brothers, David and Joe, have grown the business while continuing a family-owned tradition that caters to folks who know great barbecue from the rest. The wood smoke from every Full Moon restaurant’s fire pit shows the Birmingham-born brothers’ commitment to top-notch bar-b-que. At the same time, they satisfy a variety of tastes with fresh salads, hand-breaded chicken tenders, farm-raised catfish, Buffalo-style wings and overstuffed baked potatoes.

From the famous Full Moon chow-chow to the baked-fresh-daily Half Moon cookies, Full Moon Bar-B-Que makes sure to use the freshest ingredients in their homemade selections. Most importantly, it’s all served with a healthy helping of true Southern hospitality. You can dine in, get it to go or take advantage of Full Moon’s catering and portable BBQ pits.
