We go every time we are in town

One of the best BBQ places around. I think we have tried most everything on the menu through the years as well as bought the sauces for ourselves and for gifts. Make sure that you try the white sauce--it is exceptional. The white corn is also unique and worth a try. We go every time that we come... read more

If you a foreigner or any non anglosaxon person than forget a friendly welcome. Just pretend you don't care for the sake of food . Food is food and this is dry. Tasteless bq .This could be a bad day but why serve us dry old brisket? Why serve sides like bush beans instead of cooking your own .

Decided to try due to good reviews. Sadly disappointed. We walked from Embassy Suites anticipating the good bbq as everyone wrote about. 1st flag was when they person just swings open glass and asks us what can he get us. Nice greeting I guess for some but we were both thrown off. Anyway we proceeded to order Tri tip plate... More

Fall off the bone deliciousness with amazing potato salad and corn salad. I wish I could transplant this place back to Cincinnati. So much better then the world famous Montgomery inn ribs from my home town.

Oh wow, have not had as good a pulled pork BBQ sandwich in years. Food is fresh & portions are gracious. Hours 11am-6pm. Need to call for directions as GPS can't find it.

If you like bbq and banana pudding this is definitely a place you need to stop in Destin FL. The two guys working here are extremely nice and pleasant to talk to. I had a tasty pork taco and it was topped with a little bit of coleslaw. The corn salad and baked beans were delicious too as were the... More

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 ribs will easily feed 3 adults provided... 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
