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

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

Peebles is a family owned and operated BBQ restaurant. It has been in business for more than 60 years. Their recipes for the sauce, baked beans, potato salad, & cole slaw are wonderful and always consistent. You see the meat cooked on the open pit. The aroma will draw you in from the road. Always good. Only open Thursday -... More

My husband loves Peebles, has since he was little. I don't know what the fuss is about unless you like burnt pieces of pork for a pulled pork sandwich, dried ribs and vinegar tasting BBQ sauce. Sad that people say this is the best BBQ in the county... the restaurant with the best BBQ in the county unfortunately went out... More

This place is outstanding, not just the good, but the atmosphere as well! Sure it's hot inside because there is no air, but it is a really rustic establishment! It's absolutely worth stopping by and grabbing a bite. You won't be disappointed. Nothing fancy, just some good ole BBQ!
