Go Mooning-100 Dishes To Eat In Alabama Before You Die

Tasty Tuesday-Half-moon cookies at Full Moon Bar-B-Que #35 or #67 counting down on Meg’s 100.

Although this restaurant has been known for their hickory smoked meats, it’s slightly less famous sibling draws customers just for it’s made from scratch daily cookies.  Named half moon because half of this cookie is hand-dipped in melted milk chocolate.

A full moon of cookies

A full moon of cookies

This cookie is made with chocolate chips and pecans and is said to have just the right amount of crisp.  They are sold as a single for .72 cents or may be bought by the half dozen or dozen.  Sold in tin’s for the fan’s at a distance or for the nearby fans who who love them this much.


I would bet that these cookies are so delicious right out of the oven.  Yum!

I give these cookies 4 MEGastars ****

***MEGastars The cookies were a sweet treat.

* This made from scratch daily cookie and dipped in chocolate to honor the name of the restaurant meets the criteria set forth by Alabama tourism for local foods served with Alabama pride. Not only is it named in a clever fashion, I bet this is a treat that kids of all ages love and memories are made having this dish.


  1. There are actually two dishes from Full Moon Bar-B-Que on the “100 List.”  The other  dish is marinated coleslaw.  Look for this on my next Tasty Tuesday post with more about Full Moon Bar-B-Que 

    This MEGabites and MEGastars description is found at the bottom of each post. If you are new to my 100 Dishes in Alabama escapade, this may be helpful.  *100 Dishes to eat in Alabama before you die is a compilation of food to chow down on Bama style. Thanks to Tourism Alabama, my Alabama bucket list just became a little easier. I am going to have some fun while making my way like Ms. Pacman, in yet another state that I call home.   You too may pick up the brochure at Alabama Tourism stops or download the alphabetical brochure that begins in Abbeville and ends in York. From the little old diner to the white cloth joint, it is an opportunity to explore and experience pride in the food from restaurateurs who are dedicated to local food with some Alabama style. From the local BBQ cook to James Beard recipients, you too will take a culinary trip across scenic and historical Alabama. From this list, I select visits based on convenience of location and they are in no particular order. I already have a few favorites and perhaps when I finish this list, I will rank my favorite dishes.


    I use a 5 MEGastar system. I am not a food critic, just Meg, a curious traveler, with an interest in trying different foods and sharing my two cents on my experience. I try to follow my star system so that I may be fair to the wonderful dishes on this list.

    • *meh food. Just wasn’t good. Maybe the food came from a can. The place was not one that I would want to send someone to show pride in Alabama.   This has happened to me a few times and it is a difficult write.
    • ** passable – the food was ok and above happened but the place or vice versa
    • *** good but not outstanding or unique
    • **** Very tasty dish AND meets one of the definitions set forth by Alabama Foods/Tourism, of local food and/OR highlights Alabama Pride.
    • ***** I actually died, went to heaven and came back when I ate the dish. OR, something is very unique, something you cannot get anywhere else
