Decided to give it one last try almost a two years latter.. Terrible. Cole Slaw out of 5lb can. Beans out of 5lb Can. HEATED the BBQ in a microwave IN FRONT OF ME. Checked State Of Florida health records. 37 violations... AVOID.

The barbeque and jerk chicken at this place is great - it is a genuine hickory barbarbeque place - the meat is cooked over hickory wood in a smoker and the taste is fantastic. It is located on Davie Boulevard, just west of I95 on the south side, so its a little tricky to get into the parking lot if... More

My wife and I visited this place based on the reviews we read to date. The positives: HUGE portions, good smoky ribs, tasty jerk chicken. The negatives: sides were very mediocre, not all menu items were available. Cornbread was very good (if you like a denser texture). If you're in the mood for ribs and/or jerk chicken, this is your...

I went to this place by default, as Tom Jenkins BBQ was closed and I wanted BBQ. I couldn't be happier, as I have found a new favorite BBQ place in Ft. Lauderdale. While this is a hole in the wall, the food is awesome! I had the greens (made with smoked turkey), Jerk chicken and cornbread. Everything tasted great,... More

Decided to give it yet another try.. Coworkers wanted BBQ for lunch so off to BBQ King we went. I should have protested more!!!! Waited close to 30 minutes, saw them heating the food in a microwave. The person collecting money, couldn't handle four people, all with different checks. Check the State Health Records for this place. MULTIPLE violations. AVOID!

As I live a half mile from this location and pass it several times a day, I was tremendously excited at the prospect of having good take-out BBQ so close to me. I watched as these new restaurateurs painted the building, parked their huge smoker in the parking lot and drew a lot of attention from everyone in the area... More
