Having lived in Texas and Kansas. I can confidently say that this place ranks among the best! Defiantly best in Florida!! Service is understandably a bit slow...as they most likely make everything fresh and don't take shortcuts. Great atmosphere...we made one mistake...did not leave room for dessert...gives us an excuse to defiantly come back again!

I will start by saying that I travel to Texas every single month and I am a lover a BBQ. I cannot believe I have been living in Miami for 39 years and did not know about this place. It is better than Salt Lizard in Texas hands down. The ribs were amazing. The fried corn on the corn is... More

We had the pork sandwich, brisket sandwich and the teens had the hickory burgers. Our sides were: jalapeño cheese grits, cheesy hash brown casserole, collard greens, baked beans, fries, sweet potato fries, and sweet potato soufflé. The BBQ and burgers were very good and the sides were above and beyond, especially the sweet potato soufflé. Our server was very friendly... More

It was 95 degrees outside and the waitress wanted everyone to wait outside for 30 to 45 minutes without any shade. I understand the place is small but at least provide somewhere for the customers that are waiting a place to get out of the sun. Being around for 30+ years, you would think they would have that figured out... More

CnHSimmons, We apologize for your experiences with us. We recently extended our awning out front to try to keep some shade on the sidewalk. Unfortunately, at the 5 o'clock hour, it does not provide adequate cover. Our hostess is also instructed to let our guests know that they can wait in their cars while they wait and called when their... More

The place was clean; service was great; I can still taste the Beef Barbeque Sandwich. Enjoyed the picnic style atmosphere and seeing a number of friends. I never usually eat an entire sandwich at once! I ate the whole thing!

I go to this restaurant very frequently, the BBQ is ok, nothing from out this planet, if I can pick my favorite dish, has to be the pulled pork sandwich. But the from the side dishes the corn souffle is the best thing you going to eat.
