I was in the mood for something different...tired of burgers. I happen to be in the area and thought to myself...perfect. I got a pulled pork sandwich. It was absolutely delicious. So tender and juicy. I got the sweet and spicy sauce which was not overbearing at all. I have had their Mac and cheese and their garlic potatoes in... More

This is by far the best BBQ I have ever had. This is a family owned "mom & pop" restaurant. It is small, and not easy to find, but worth the drive (we drive 20 minutes to get there). But once you have eaten here, you will be a huge fan. Carl and Kim work hard to provide the very... More

We've had C&K's BBQ many times and their meats have always been good, not exceptional but good enough to travel the distance to go there again. It is a small place but they do have limited seating inside and out. All but once we have elected to carry out. Customers order the food and it is brought to you or... More

Really awesome southern soul food. My favorite is the pulled pork dinner. You get a huge helping of pulled pork, two good size portions of sides (choose from mac-n-cheese, baked beans, fried okra, the BEST collard greens, green beans, the BEST GOLDEN SMASHED POTATOES dripping with buttery goodness, omg!). Whenever I'm showing homes in Parrish I always try to take... More

You pretty much have to since Parrish is in the middle of nowhere. If you happen to be going to the train museum or something stop here we always get the family dinner for 4 it is $40 and 4 people can't finish it.

We actually catered this place for a party and everyone LOVED the food!! They often sell out when the food is gone, they close early. We think it's the BEST bbq in town!!!

when traveling thru Parrish and in the mood for barbecue, C&K is a must stop. Been in business quite a while. Family run with huge portions.

Ribs were very good and the pulled pork had a good smoke flavor, good enough that it didn't need sauce; that is my test for tasty BBQ I will definitely return for more Ribs

C&Ks is a small place. It looks like an old fashioned cabin. I have not eaten in the restaurant, but had the food when it was catered by my church. The barbeque sauce is a combination of smoky, spicy and sweet. It definitely has its own taste and is worth trying out.

Wonderful fresh hot food, exceptional southern BBQ and fall off the bone meaty ribs. Paper napkins, very casual in a picnic like atmosphere. Clean, clean bathrooms. Happy kids happy parents. Family friendly. But when they run out ( it can happen) you miss out. Worth going early and get some pulled pork to go as well.

This restaurant is located in a brand new building complete with it's smoke house in the back. When we drove into the parking lot we were immediately lured inside by the warm sweet smell of smokey BBQ. I've eaten in many BBQ establishments and this one has some of the best ribs and chicken I have ever tried. I am looking forward to returing to try their pulled pork and the other side dishes like, coleslaw, baked beans and potato salad.
