Ive eaten here many times over the past twenty years. Its still my favorite bbq place in the area. The brunswick stew and the baked beans are awesome.

This bbq location has been a mainstay for bbq in Fort Walton for a long time. The staff is very nice. I like bbq the ribs are always really good..the chicken is good as well the only negative is the pulled pork is dry alot of the times. A new bbq joint opened called Parsons Son BBQ out of Tennessee.... More

Another fab hole-in-the-wall on Racetrack Road in Ft Walton, in a small strip mall near the intersection with Beale Parkway. Inside is no better than outside UNTIL you see the wood-burning fireplace loaded with pork and chicken. I ordered a pound of pulled pork with extra sauce at $12.99 and a pint of their cole slww to go. Absolutely delicious... More

Quick service, good food, a bit hidden, worth the trip. Reasonable prices and sensible portions. Recommended by co-worker.

This is a hole in the wall restaurant with the best BBQ this area has to offer. Forget the chain restaurants and make this your BBQ stop. My choice is the outter cut beef. If.you get the pulled pork, you can't go wrong.

The outside of the restaurant looks like somewhere you want to keep driving by, but the food is delicious. The ribs are great! Save room for the peanut butter pie. They make the peanut butter one in house and taste delicious!

Eat in, or take a few slabs of ribs, a tub of coleslaw, a pecan pie, and all the rest home! Either way, this is truly finger-licking good stuff! Not to be missed!
