Every year when we travel to Florida for our vacation, my husband specifically charts our course from Wisconsin so we arrive at Paul Gant's for lunch on Saturday. It is fabulous! Hits the spot every time!

This is addictive foodie BBQ at its very best! We winter in PSJ and before we get to the house we stop here for our first fix of Paul Gant. It's difficult surviving the lean months without them. Last time on our first stop of our stay we ran into a couple from Minnesota who confided that they too stop... More

Every year we come down to St. Joe Beach and stay for a week. We get this BBQ at least once (if not twice) and it never seems to disappoint. It is so hard to find good pulled pork where we live back home so we always look forward to getting a butt.

This is a must for us, every time we visit the Cape. Paul Gant's had wonderful ribs, chicken, and pork. Portions are generous so you get your money's worth and enjoy every bite.

Have a hankering for some wonderful BBQ? Well, look no further than Paul Gant's BBQ. It's tender and well seasoned. This is one of the best BBQ joints I've ever been to. Their sides are delicious and fresh. Look no more, you've found his store. You won't be disappointed.

The food is great, and at low prices. Only downside is that they are only open Thursday through Saturday. It's just a food truck, no seating. But delicious barbecue!

Being a local my view is slanted to say the least. Paul until his death and his family have provided quality food in this area for years at their walk-up roadside trailer. When asked to cater....you can bet it was going to be a treat. The BBQ and sides are excellent! Today and as in the beginning....you are met with... More

Really don't know if her has regular hours but if you see 'smoke' ..he's cooking! Small food trailer on the highway going into Port Saint Joe. The best bbq I have had in a very very long time! The baked beans, slaw and we order extra sauce on the side are out of this world~
