One of Tuscaloosa's iconic restaurants caught fire on Thursday morning and captured in a photo on social media.

Archibald's BBQ, which many regard as the best spot for ribs in Tuscaloosa, was dealing with what appeared to be a significant fire where the pit is located. Michael Clark shared this photo taken by Crystal Gale Keasler on social media showing the blaze.

Thankfully, it turned out to look much worse than it actually was. The Tuscaloosa News' Cecil Hurt shared this update from scene.

Here are some additional photos of the aftermath.

I think we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief that the institution will live on.
