Good Barbecue casual environment

We enjoyed the chicken dinner, the four rack of ribs, and the kids chicken finger. All of the entrées were very good. The dinners came with four sides. We had the garlic bread, cornbread, the green beans, the fried okra, and the French fries. We also enjoyed the Brunswick stew. Everything was very... read more

Went here for dinner, I ordered the Special Combo. This included 3 meats, ribs, sliced pork, sliced brisket, baked beans, green beans, and cornbread. More than I could eat at $16.50 it was a great deal. They were very friendly and were helpful in explaining the advantages of each meal or combo. There are 4 different sauces on the table... More

Being a Ex-Texan I would say this might be good Florida BBQ but left me missing Texas. Baked beans were good, the collards were alright and the bin on my sandwich was fresh. What about the beef - well it wasn't brisket, had very little smoke flavor (beans had more) and the beef was shaved and was more like an... More

I can't eat pork and the sign out front said "We have Beef Ribs" so in we went and they were the BEST beef ribs I have ever had.

This place moves right up to the top of my "Favorite" list! The employees all seem to love working here. Their friendly, helpful and professional. The menu features some of my favs, pulled pork, catfish, and beans as tasty as any you can find. The portions would satisfy the most hungry teenager. The prices are very reasonable and the service...

Stopped by while in Orlando for a family emergency. Born and raised in Melbourne and have not had a decent BBQ since moving to New England in 2000. Out looking for a meal and could not do the regular chain meal. Loved the look and knew I was back home. Meal for myself and my wife was awesome and very... More

4 Rivers Smokehouse (in Longwood) is a much better choice if you want a real BBQ, not Bubbalou's Bodacious Bar B Que. Try 4 Rivers and you'll see the difference.

Nice smoky pulled pork without sauce, which you can add from various sauces at your table. Serving sizes are ample, and we always have leftovers. Extensive menu with something for everyone. Clean, nice staff, delicious food. Great semi- self serve restaurant. ...and oh, those baked beans...!

This joint used to be very good...but it has changed for the worse: waiters try very hard but quality isn't there any more, baby ribs were terrible (dry, not falling off the bone, overcooked, they are perhaps using another supplier or cook), fried beans so so sweet. When we complained to the waitress, she said she was going to report... More

When you enter this old fashioned BBQ joint you go to the counter and look at the marquee on the back wall to order, if you're eating in you go to the table of your choice and wait (with mine it was only a couple of minutes) for a server (who continues to watch the tables for any additional needs...
