For such a small place, this is one big dish.

Wilson’s Barbecue is a small, drive-through window of a restaurant in Albertville. But through that window they’ve managed to squeeze one loaded baked potato.

The Chicken Baked Potato is a favorite and has been on the menu since the place opened 43 years ago.

It starts with a big baked potato slathered inside with butter. Then comes the smoked chicken followed by the special house sauce, cheese and sour cream.
