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!

On a recent visit to Florida, my parents took us to Peeble BBQ. Although it's the type of place you might be tempted to drive right by, don't! It sure isn't a fancy place, but they crank out some great food. The atmosphere is comfortable and friendly, and the prices are reasonable. Don't feel like you need to get the... More

I was born and raised in Auburndale and grew up eating Peebles, my husband and I visited family there last week and I got a pile of everything for a family picnic we had planned for our first day. Everyone was extremely pleased and we managed to devour the feast with only 10 people. Nothing has changed about this place... More

Peebles, open since 1947, serves an authentic, unembellished barbecue. It's situated in a screened-in barn-like structure with no A/C or heat which explains why they're closed in July and August. They are also only open Thursday through Saturday. The pit is in the middle of the dining room and the cooking is over oak logs for the most part. On... More

I have been eating barbecue from this place since I was a little girl back in the early 70's. Everything is yummy good but my favorite is the chopped pork and baked beans.....I eat so much when I get these I give myself a stomach ache but just can stop myself!!
