Quaint, different, cute retro restaurant that is actually original!

Went for lunch. I had BBQ chicken basket. It was very different from other restaurants I have dined in as the entire Restaurant was more of a giant screen porch. The tables and chairs appear to be original as does the equipment. Service was good, food was great although my Chicken was a little... read more

We have been customers for many years. Wonderful pork ribs, baked beans and cole slaw. We always do take out as there is no air conditioning. They close during the summer months to vacation as a family.

By far, the best bbq in the area. The servers are really nice and took the time to tell us about the restaurant history and how the bbq is prepared.

Have eaten here at least 15 times in the past 20 years. The meat is now found to be oily, fatty and thin. The beans are still great. Coleslaw is a personal taste. Humid, hot, so make sure you are there for takeout only.

No a/c, but the place is an Auburndale establishment. Really great barbecue! Cole slaw and baked beans are good too....

After both my parents talked this place up highly, I had really high expectations for the food that weren't even close to met. I had the pork sandwich with potato salad and baked beans. Everything was really blah. Even the BBQ sauce tasted watery and blah. I was incredibly disappointed and once or twice I thought about adding a pinch... More

So this place is legendary. Since I was a child it has been a tradition of fantastic grub. Keep it simple. Pork. White bread. Great sauce. If it's Thursday or Friday or Saturday and it's not summertime - GO!!!!!

Most of the time it is great. I have had a couple of occasions where my ribs were dried out, but most of the time, they are very good. Very simple. and very old.

As a "foodie", I was amazed at the wonderful reviews. With apologies to Peebles, my experience was not positive. It may be a great landmark, but the food is the thing. My small order of ribs arrived already looking dry and tough. My attempts to wrest the meat off the bone gave me a mouthful of dry cords which no... More
