We had a really nice diner in this restaurant : the meat was perfectly cooked (I ordered the spare ribs which were tasty) and the sides great too. Service is very friendly and it's not expensive. I definitively recommend this adress.

Miami Icon! Home style cooking. Tasty ribs with jalapeños grits. Delish! Tried Cheerwine for the first time. (It's soda pop). Great family fun!

My husband and I were visiting the Everglades and gave this place a try for dinner. My husband thought the ribs were excellent, but was less excited about the brisket - he has high standards for brisket, seeing as he is Texan. I loved the...More

We stopped here en-route to Naples from Key West for lunch. The ribs were the best we've had. It's based on bench style sitting so you find a spot, service is quick and the food is great. Menu is concise - does what it says...More
