Over from the UK to visit friends and they took us to Grangers. Small place, so needed to book in advance, we arrived and were asked how we wanted our steaks cooking by Mr Granger, paid, got our drinks and were seated, food came quickly,...More

The sandwich’s are great lots of tender meat on a hamburger bun and the sauce is great. Now the sides are to blah for me . They need to doctor them up some ..

Stopped for lunch on our way to Tampa. What a pleasant surprise. Don’t be fooled by the exterior. The ribs are outstanding and not expensive at all. This I a must stop if you’re in the Lakeland area.

This restaurant is one of the best barbecue places around Lakeland value and quality of food are excellent definitely worth a stop just make sure you bring cash because they do not accept any cards

Outside looks deceiving- a hole in the wall, run down building on the outside but a quaint amazing bbq joint on the inside. Got our order to go and we’re not disappointed.

Really not a fan of their steaks, too much spice used while grilling, dont appreciate paper plates and plastic utensils for eating steaks, and they are too expensive for all that.

Food is consistently good but Friday & Saturday nights are when to go as they have their Steak specials which are tender, juicy and delicious along with a price you can’t beat!! But Bring Cash Cause they Don’t take Credit cards!!

My husband and I always wondered why there were so many cars and trucks in the parking lot. No we know why. The ribs are the best I've eaten as is the side dishes

This place is amazing!! The ribs are the best. Cooked perfectly. They also have the best potato salad. I go here at least once a week. They’re very friendly as well.

No, they don't. I'm sure of that. Only iced tea and soft drinks.
