Great little find!

We were heading back to Crystal River and looked on trip advisor for best BBQ in Brooksville. The fried green tomatoes were very fresh and cut in wedges. We also had a pulled pork sandwich and baby back ribs. Everything was great and we really enjoyed the array of hot sauces. Very friendly service... read more

Pullred Pork sandwich is down home goodness, Baked Beans and Sweet Potsto casserole I would get as the sided. Fried bllueberry pie sounds intriguing. Atmosphere is ok.

I found myself in Brooksville for the first time and passed by this BBQ spot. I was happy to find it, because I had been thinking about BBQ all morning. I arrived a little after 3pm and was happy to see I was not the only customer. The gentlemen working were very nice, and when prompted, suggested I try the... More

Horrible food and a hostile enviroment. The barbecue was poor tasting and no smoke flavor. They advertised fried green tomatoes, but and did not have. i can only advise to not go to this place.

Very little meat on the pork sandwich. It was cold in the middle.

Myself and friends have eaten there many times now. I think it is the best BBQ in Hernando. The few people who write negative reviews must either have an issue with the owner's political signs, or are they're the owners from competing BBQ's.

This was by far the BEST BBQ I have ever had. Kids, hubby and I ate everything to the bone. Was truly outstanding, and I've had a lot of BBQ. Glad we stopped there.

We were looking for BBQ, but alternatives to chain restaurants, while we were attending a competition at the Florida Classic Park. We were pleasantly surprised by Deep South BBQ. Chicken, pork, corn on the cob, and different types of BBQ sauce. The peach cobbler was delicious. It's a small place, but we were fortunate to beat a bit of a... More
