It's a shack, but the food that comes out from the smoke house is delicious. I'm not a great BBQ fan, but I could eat here regularly. served with sauce on the side and the ribs and pork sandwich was excellent.

I wish this place was open more often because they have the BEST smoked sausage ever!! They usually have a line and often run out so you have to wait. We have tried nearly everything and have not a single complaint of the food. They are only open Fri and Sat so it sucks but it is amazing!

Not fancy, but very delish. They only have outdoor seating. We got the pulled pork, chicken and baked beans. All was great, especially the chicken. Big portions at a great price.

Dunedin is a charming little west Florida town where you expect to pay too much for food and homes. It gets into money magazines and is a nice place to visit, but the only fantastic food place I know there is a modest little shack on Hwy. 580, where you stand in line, order and eat outdoors. Even if you... More

Eli continues to torture us during the week while he enjoys his retirement. Those of you who haven't stopped by when they are open on Friday and Saturday have no clue. This is the best bbq in Dunedin. Possibly in Pinellas county. Get there early so you can get the sausage. If not, the chicken is always amazing. Yes its... More

I was staying at the holiday inn express across the street and smelled the smoke coming from here at 9 am. All day long it taunted me until I finally went next door and got some. I just got a 1/2 lb of chopped beef as it was just me. I ended up sharing with my husband once he got... More

We came to Dunedin for a wedding and stayed at The Holiday Inn Express across the street from Eli's. It quickly became our "go to" place for lunch when friends and relatives arriving later asked where was a good place to eat locally. Chopped pork sandwich with hot or mild BBQ sauce, $4.50, and they don't skimp on the pork.

Exactly what I like, small place with their own recipe and the smokery in the next house. The food tasted very well.
