If you blink while driving through on Rt 301, you might miss this old-time gem. So, look carefully and pull in. It's worth the stop. Been here a couple of times. Always good, especially the sides according to my wife. My only suggestion would be to keep the ribs in the smoker a little longer. Like them falling off the... More

I understand this is the old Sonny's BBQ. Diane's is much better than the Sonny's we have now. It's as good as the Original Sonny's BBQ. Sauce is good, pork is good, really enjoyed the potato salad. And the BBQ beans are wonderful.

We were traveling from Jax to Tampa via Hwy 301 and decided to stop at Dianne's for lunch. Boy are we glad we did! The service and the food were both outstanding. My wife and I both ordered the lunch special for $7.99. I chose white meat chicken, with fries and baked beans. She chose dark meat chicken with fries... More

The food is treble. The prices are very high. Use to have Hot Bar with homemade food. Now it's strictly BBQ except Mornings! It's the only restaurant that has Breakfast in town.

Fast and friendly service and great food. Real homestyle cooking. Not to be missed. The thin sliced pork barbecue with homemade sauce was out of this world.

Stop there after a bad fishing day.What a pleasant surprise. We had the lunch specials for $7.99. Great baked beans, coleslaw and barbecue chicken. Service was great, not a real classy place, just great food,

What can we say? We eat here every time we are traveling between our home in Florida and our family home in Georgia....about once every 2 weeks. For 20 years now. Dianne's has not changed one bit in all those years: The best BBQ and sides; the friendliest staff; the same regulars who all know each other; great prices; simply... More

We travel up and down 301 a lot but for some reason have never seen Dianne's Barbeque resturant before. Maybe we were just never hungry at the right time before. Anyway, we went in and we're seated immediately. Friendly waitress. Good prices. Great food. We will absolutely make sure we are hungry next time we come by because we will... More
