The best place for bbq period. Ask for Cynthia, she is great, a real sweetheart! Try the smoked wings, smoked brisket, pulled pork, panko fried fish, corn nuggets, i could go on and on. This is a local gem!

Always get your money's worth at Brian's. Chicken plates are especially good. Servers are very courteous and attentive. Good place to meet friends and chaw down on some bar-b-que of your choice along with generous sides. Food prices compare very favorably with food tastes .

I have eaten at this place a few times. The food has always been fresh and well-cooked. This time I had fried shrimp, which were fresh (as opposed to frozen) and tasty. Meals come with two sides, some of which are Southern specialties (such as collard greens and cheese-and-bacon grits). The wait staff were friendly, prompt, and attentive. The prices... More

The pork ribs at Brian's are large, juicy, cooked to perfection with a flavor that can't be beat. They also serve other selections, baby backs, chicken etc., but the large pork ribs are the best. I frequently order from the take out menu which includes beans, slaw, garlic bread and extra sauce. It's usually enough for at least 2 meals.... More

Brian's Bar-b-que is excellent in every aspect. The food is always delicious, great service, reasonably priced, it's clean, even has a roll of paper towels at each table for your hands after eating the yummy ribs, a choice of b-b-q sauces and specials for each day including nickel beer night, on Mondays. Good place for get togethers with family &... More

A must stop when in DeLand! John Wayne burger is my favorite, while the wife loves the pulled pork! My children try to identify all the pictures of the cowboy/girl stars!

We've gone twice in the last 2 weeks for their Honey Garlic Pork Chop special. The 1st time we both had the pork chop special which was great with 2 large cutlet pork chops that were tender and cooked just right. The second time my husband had the pork chops again and I got their large fried white fish dinner.... More

To me this is the best bbq I have ever had at a restaurant. I thought Famous Dave's was good but Brian's will give them a run for their money. The food is delicious. The service is always great. I get the chicken and pork plate with mac and cheese, bread and corn. The food is consistent every time.

Today was the second time we've been to Brian's Bar-B-Cue restaurant this week. Both time I had this Honey Garlic Pork a Chop Plate. It was a slow smoked pork loin then char grilled on an open flame. Then cut into chops, smothered with a honey garlic glaze and served with Texas toast and a choice of sides. My sides... More
