The first time we came here we were not expecting much, it's kind of in a strange area of Orlando, a little tough to find but it is what I would call a hidden gem off the beaten path type of restaurant. Only locals might...More

Went for lunch at this spot this week with a coworker. Had never been but have heard a few things about this spot, all of which were good. Food is served via a buffet style line. You grab your meat, then side dishes and at...More

Don't be fooled some of the "fancy BBQ" spots around town. This is how real BBQ should be. Very welcoming, friendly atmosphere. The food is consistently excellent after years of going. Free ice cream for dessert as well!

First time visiting this place, my wife had been here and she recommended a visit. Very rustic atmosphere, typical of a good BBQ joint. I had the Brisket and Pork platter with sides. The Meat was Very Good, the sides only slightly disappointing. We did...More

After living in Kentucky, Memphis Tennessee and Alabama, I can honestly say that Cecils has the best BBQ ribs in the south east. This is the smoky & spicy dry rub that you dream about. Fall off the bone tender without much fat and bursting...More
