Great BBQ at the beach

The BBQ Pork Ribs are the best! Be ready to catch the pork because it literally falls off the bone. Choose between several sauces and get-it-to-go or sit at one of the several picnic tables on the porch. The usual sides: BBQ beans(very good), potato salad(also good), cole slaw, etc. One rack of... read more

This un assuming little shack provide the best barbeque period. The ribs and pulled pork are fantastic. They take call in orders and there is some outdoor seating but we always do take home. The souces are the best and there are several shoices with tasting provide to help you choose. Order/come early because he almost always sells out and... More

Stopped here on a friends recommendation. Lunch of pulled pork sand. and a side of very creamy potato salad. The food was all good. It's only a shack, and carry out seems to be a large part of the business. There is limited seating on a covered patio. Will return

I wanted to write in reference to the folks that indicated that the owner's were rude. I have known this family for close to 20 years and you won't find friendlier people. If you had a bad experience then you must have done something to provoke that response. I have enjoyed their food for years! Just wish they hadn't moved... More

We had driven by here a hundred times before we finally decided to give it a try. Sure glad we did. I ordered a full rack of baby back ribs to go. I'd have to say that they were the best ribs in Destin and we've tried them everywhere. Can't wait to go back and try some of their other... More

Nearly missed this cute little place....thought it was closed....but the owner/worker told us, "see that pig out front? If the pig is there, we are open!" I ordered pulled pork with smokey sauce and chose coleslaw and baked beans as my two sides, for $11. The sauce was in a small cup and was perfect with the half pound of... More

I love barbeque, but I also love chicken salad. This place was within walking distance to my hotel, so I thought I'd give it a try. I was a bit shocked to find out there is no inside seating and they don't take credit cards, but I can handle both. The smoked chicked salad was calling my name. It was... More

Lillie's Q is by far some of the best BBQ I've ever had, and I've been up and down the southern states more times to count. All of their sauces are absolutely KILLER, and their meat is so tender and juicy, sometimes I wonder if I need the sauce at all. I wish they had a bit more seating, but... More

We called for carry out at this barbecue establishment located just across the highway from the entrance to our resort. The service was quick, our order correct, and most of all, the food was excellent. Two of us had ribs and I had the tri-tip. Sides were excellent as well. There are several types of house-made sauces available. There is... More
