We both opted for the bbq chicken sandwich...delicious with great fries and tasty sauce. Limited seating, but really great chicken and worth the effort. cobra427sc

A bargain at $10.49 for an order of ribs, and two sides( in our case Macaroni and Cheese and Baked Beans) they were very good, a filling meal, served quickly and hot too. .oh, yes, we had a slice of their Sweet Potato Pie too. . .yum!

From the moment you step in you know you are in for a feast. From the collard greens to the beef brisket everything its just delicious. Definitely a place to come back.

Get your mind around the fact this is a classic, genuine bar-b-q joint that's all about the food. Period. The menu has a great selection of meats, sides and delicious deserts.

Stopped for a quick lunch before catching a flight home. Already filling up @ 11:30. Ordered the chopped pork platter. Big portions of smokey chopped pork and fries. The pork was very tasty. The cornbread was excellent. Not sure when I'll be back in Ft Lauderdale but I'll definitely return.

The best bbq I have had in a long time. The flavors are outstanding. The smoky slightly sweet bbq sauce is pretty tasty. Good service as well. Friendly prices

Do yourself a favor and try their beef brisket platter. If you are a meat lover you will thank me for the advice. We work in the area and look at any opportunity to get there and have lunch. Very affordable for the quality of barbecued meats that you get there. No frills place, just the way I want it.... More
