Family-owned, road-side establishment with basic tables and chairs. Nothing fancy but the BBQ is great. Probably do more take-out than eat-in business. Not open 7 days a week and closed during the summer during which time the locals cannot wait for the Fall reopening. The place is packed when it is open, so call ahead and order take-out, then head... More

Had the sliced beef sandwich and loved it. Squirrel away as much of the sauce as you can. Potato salad is great, found other sides undistinguished. Place gets jammed with limit open days. Be patient

I've been eating Peebles BBQ since I was a child. My Mom got me hooked early. Nothing better in Polk.

Peebles is a one-of-a-kind, local place to eat great barbecue and has awesome waitresses that make you feel like you're sitting at the kitchen table in their own homes. Can't beat the homemade side dishes either...the beans, potato salad and cole slaw are worth the trip. Add in the ribs, pulled pork, chicken and/or beef, and you've got yourself an... More

The whole atmosphere is awesome. It takes you back to a real hometown service. They treat uou likr family and cater to better than most restaurant invthe area. And the best part is you can see where they cook at and talk to the owner.

This is where the locals eat. The food is simple, but great!. Casual dining in it's truest sense. A small, family owned restaurant that hasn't changed much in 60 years, you get the rustic charm and ambience of small town Central Florida, just as it was so long ago. The pit is in the dining room. There is no a/c,... More

Peeble's has been around for what seems like a century but probably not nearly that long. The restaurant is more like eating on the backporch than in a restaurant. Don't dress up for this place, there's no need....you are there for the food not to be seen. I'm not sure there's any place in this area that has better ribs... More
