Everything is great... my new favorite there is the burnt ends sandwich but ask for it dry and add your own sauce!!

I always stop for some good BBQ, now if you just traveling south on your way to the keys your best bet is to call the restaurant and place your order over the phone that way you avoid the waiting time because is always crowded inside and people outside waiting on they order, but at the end you would not...

I have lived in Homestead for many years and by far Shiver's is the best BBQ in town. The picnic table seating invites a family friendly atmosphere and the prices are affordable. The sweet potato and cornbread casserole are a must try when you visit.

Shivers has been around forever, or so it seems. It never lets me down. The food is consistently good and has the feel and smell of a real BBQ joint. Friendly service and busy... may be worth a call to check.

I've had BBQ from Texas to the Carolinas. I couldn't have guessed there'd be anything close to good 'cue in South Florida. Well, this place is it. Great char on some spare ribs, crispy crackle on the baby backs, juicy pork and brisket you can dress up as you like it with their various sauces. A nice array of sides... More

Absolutely hands down best BBQ my husband and I have had. We live in Ft. Lauderdale and were nearby when we wanted BBQ lunch. We will however make a drive again. The chicken was moist and not overcooked. The ribs were delicious! Love the sauces and the corn soufflé is a must.

Always stop on our way to the Keys. Favorites include burnt ends sandwich, pulled pork sandwich, brisket, sweet potato souffle, cornbread casserole, and the fried corn on the cob. Always clean and friendly. Enjoy the atmosphere and all the signage (even in the clean bathrooms). Sitting at picnic tables is unique and a chance to visit with new people. An... More

The BBQ was great! The sides were excellent. We didn't have room for dessert. Prices are a bit higher than other places, but definitely worth it as the food was good quality. Seating is at picnic tables and is shared among the visitors. Don't expect your own table, instead be prepared to sit next to strangers enjoying their own food.

This is a real BBQ joint decorated with ceiling fans, long shared picnic tables with rolls of paper towels, tin signs, chalet type beam ceiling and painted landscapes on its concrete walls. The service is friendly and relaxed - no one is in a hurry here. A mix of families, couples and groups of guys were enjoying the laid back... More

Great BBQ!!! BIG PORTIONS. The corn nuggets are delicious along with the fried okra. Easy to find and excellent service, thanks to the server Colette. Will return in the (hopefully) near future.
