I love salads so I love all their chicken salads! Can't go wrong. My husband likes the beef brisket sandwich.

90 Barbecue is hard to find but tough to beat! We originally saw favorable reviews (thanks to TripAdvisor) and decided to check it out on a recent trip to the Destin/Walton Beach area! We were not disappointed....in fact, just the opposite! The pulled pork, chicken and brisket lunches were extremely generous in portion. Everything was delicious and we walked out... More

When you are in the area of Santa Rosa, try this BBQ. We ordered the combo plate with pulled pork and brisket with sides of onion rings, bbq beans and corn nuggets. The BBQ was wonderful and the portions were more than we could eat. Staff was friendly and packed up their home made bread pudding with Praline sauce for... More

Don't be fooled by the outside of the building there is plenty of room and the brisket is fantastic. They slow cook for 10-11 hours. Ribs were awesome too. My wife and I split a Bar-b-que platter. It was plenty of food with two sides. Very friendly wait staff.

I've eaten allot of bar b q in my day but I'm here to tell you, this is the BEST ever! I had the pulled pork sandwich with fries: they brought out an enormous mound of pork that could have made three sandwiches. The mound was on a divine bun, no way to describe it. Fries were perfection. Absolutely the... More

I'm used to really good NC BBQ. Although my husband liked his brisket I found this an average bbq restaurant. Ribs were ok, fries droopy and coleslaw average.

We went here for lunch. My husband and I both had salads. My husband had the Jumbo BBQ Salad with Brisket. He said it was very good. I enjoyed the Chris Clark Salad with the raspberry vinaigrette dressing. The salad had an abundance of strawberries and walnuts. The service here was great and the staff friendly. Would go again.

When anyone asks me where to go for lunch or dinner I always tell them 98. This is a great joint...food is always fast, hot, and delicious. The pulled chicken and pulled porks are wonderful! Also the fries and onion rings are fantastic!! They are always playing a great variety of music and have some old school arcade games in... More

Dropped in for a quick lunch with family and we were blown away. I'm a ketchup-enthusiast but the French fries were so well-seasoned they were more delicious plain! We had the pulled pork and pulled chicken BBQ sandwiches; the plates were so big that we were ecstatic to take home leftovers! Original BBQ sauce is delicious and the spicy BBQ... More

Very nice menu with lots of BBQ options to course from. My husband got the platter with ribs and chicken and 2 sides. He said it was all very good. I had the beef brisket nachos...half portion. Thank goodness, because all the portions are generous. We spent $50 for dinner, 2 beers, iced tea and dessert. Not too bad. And... More
