Average for BBQ

The bbq was good but not outstanding. Our group had beef brisket, ribs, chicken, and pulled pork. The portions were large; the service was prompt; the wait staff were friendly and attentive. We'll go back the next time we're in Deland.

Fast service and no too crowded. Clean overall but avoid vegetables than tend to be overcooked and often served cold.

A group of friends and i stopped in while on a ride. There was 13 of us. But the place wasn't busy at all. We placed our drink order which took almost 10 minutes to get. Than waited 15 for waitress to come back. Food came out in a reasonable time. But 3 of the orders were very well over... More

This first time I ate the food here was awesome. This time not so much. The "diet plate" meat was as so tough. maybe it's called the diet plate because you won't want to eat it.

Thank you so much for your comments. I am so sorry that your beef was tough on your last visit. We slow smoke the meats and try very hard to ensure a tender, tasty product. If you ever receive an item you don't care for, please let your server know and we will replace or change the item...no questions. I... More

I liked their Tesax style pulled pork. The serving siize was ample. Their booths were wooden benchces adding to the rustiic atmosphere of the restaurnt. The salad bar was quite large. Outdoor seating was small. I want to go back.

They're take out service is always on time and perfect for those in home parties. As always, guests couldn't say enough regarding how good the ribs and sides... More

Good food at great prices. The salad bar is amazing, don't miss out on the chicken salad on the salad bar, it is really good. Steaks are good, ribs are good and the burgers are good. I think this is one of the best BBQ restaurants I have been to.

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
