This is a tiny place with no "eat -in" options, except a few bar-type seats on the outside, which are probably more comfortable for waiting for your take-out than they are for actually eating. The ribs and chicken are so good you'll think you died and went to heaven. Among the sides, I recommend the mac-and-cheese or the collard greens.... More

We saw this place on our way back to our vacationing spot off A1A and were destined to return before flying back home. It was hard to resist the hickory smell lingering in the air. We bought a slab and wish we had bought a few more to last us for a while. The BBQ sauce was very delicious. It... More

The ribs are smokey, tender with just the right bark on the outside. I say sauce on the side to make sure you can taste the flavor of the meat.

The barbeque and jerk chicken at this place is great - it is a genuine hickory barbarbeque place - the meat is cooked over hickory wood in a smoker and the taste is fantastic. It is located on Davie Boulevard, just west of I95 on the south side, so its a little tricky to get into the parking lot if... More

My wife and I visited this place based on the reviews we read to date. The positives: HUGE portions, good smoky ribs, tasty jerk chicken. The negatives: sides were very mediocre, not all menu items were available. Cornbread was very good (if you like a denser texture). If you're in the mood for ribs and/or jerk chicken, this is your...
