Came here on our first night...when we walked in it was packed with people queuing for food....it was hectic, we were going to leave but decided against it...so thankfull we didn’t, the food is prepared in an open kitchen, if your into huge portions, enjoy ribs, chicken, turkey and sides then this is the place....great food, cheap prices....be prepared to wait and don’t expect plates, it’s food that’s served in containers, I’ll rephrase that, it’s great food served in containers, (we took ours back to our hotel and ate it in our room) don’t let this put you off as you will miss out on great food

We’ve driven by this place for years and it’s always crowded so we finally decided to check it out. Why we waited so long to go was a mistake. We got there about 1:00 on a Wednesday afternoon and had to wait to place our order and then to get a seat as well. It’s family style with picnic tables to sit on and that’s part of the great ambiance. We ordered the family sampler which is meant for four, but hey, having leftovers was a good thing. Ribs, brisket, chicken and pulled pork are all part of the sampler. Baked beans, collard greens, macaroni and cheese, coleslaw and corn bread were all included. Outstanding.

I literally got off the plane and headed right to the front door of this place! It is unchanged since I started going there in 2000... and thank heavens. Great solid food with taste like no other! Perfect and quintessential BBQ Joint.... do not miss this one and order one of everything.... you will not be disappointed. BYOB -- bring your own BIB

We are from KY and we love our B-B-Q. This place was one of the best B-B-Q restaurants we have ever ate at. Friendly staff and the Mac n cheese was soo good

What a fantastic place with a friendly staff! I had baby backs ribs with baked beans and collard green: both delicious! I loved also a wonderful homemade corn muffin. BBQ sauce are excellent. Good value for money and for me the best BBQ in Florida.
