From time of order until food comes to table, this is one of the slowest places to eat in Naples. Ribs are great. Smoked beef is terrible. Cold. Chicken is very good. Beans tasty. Slaw good. Texas toast hot and good. Corn on cob hot and tasty. Friendly service, but the kitchen production to table is really slow. Parking and live music if you are waiting to be seated. No one waiting tonight, so singer is singing to parking lot of cars and as you leave. Very clean. Just need to get order to you faster, when it nothing more than normal BBQ items.

We have been here over the years, has become a tradition when we are visiting family in Naples, FL. Always busy and lively atmosphere for all ages. Had a country performer outside playing/singing as we waited to be seated.

We had the Baby Back Ribs; 1/2 Rack of Ribs + Spicy Michelbob's Smokehouse Sausage; Smoked Pulled Pork; !/2 Rack Ribs & BBQ Chicken Breast; Grilled BBQ Chicken Breast; Corn on the Cob, Cole Slaw, Beans.

The ribs were a bit dry, put sauce on top at the table. The Michelbob's Sausage was excellent!

Fun place for a family meal!

Had the ribs, beans, coleslaw and corn. Excellent meal. Fall off the bone ribs. Great seasoning. Worth the drive and minimal wait time. Always go here when I am in FL.

If you come here you must got the ribs! They are tender fall off the bone and the flavor is just spectacular. I also really enjoyed the sweet potato tater tots.

The rest of the items that we tried were pretty good but nowhere near as good as the ribs. We tried the pulled pork and the brisket and the coleslaw.

The service was excellent though! The staff was friendly from the moment you walked in.

Overall I definitely recommend!

Hadn't been here in a long time..29 years..so I wasn't sure what to expect but was very happy we gave Michelbob's a try. Friendly, bustling rib joint. Ate early so we didn't have to wait for a table. After 6 pm you'll probably wait a little. rack of baby backs was on special and was a good choice. They give you enough sides..corn on the cob, baked beans and cole slaw and garlic bread all accompany the ribs so you shouldn't leave hungry. If I get the chance, I will go back.
