Unfancy old Floorida setting. ribs are the large 7" type perfectly slow cooked and meaty. Several BBQ sauces to choose from. Chicken and fish are also excellent. Try a combo for about 12.95 with 2 sides. Quality-Service-Price, hard to beat. Tap beer under $3.00

The food here used to be of good quality. It has really gone down hill over the last couple of years.

Had the pulled pork and chicken combo. Everything tasted the same. The pulled pork tasted old. Definitely not fresh. The chicken tasted like fish. The mac n cheese was ok as was the fries. The sweat tea was average. Garlic toast was good.

What a throwback! Very kitschy...alligator hide hanging on the wall, old fashioned counter service. Nothing fancy, just great prices and good ol" BBQ. Portion sizes were good, several sauce choices and sides. Had a large pulled pork sandwich for under $6. Also tried the pork ribs. Very meaty and tender. Very, very casual!!!!!
