If I could give Kinfolks Bar-B-Q a higher rating, I certainly would.

My fiance' and I have been craving "good" BBQ since we have been in the panhandle for the past 2 months. And no, not that cookie-cutter, chain BBQ you see advertised on television or huge billboards. But that special kind of BBQ that can normally be found in the backwoods area, across the RR tracks... read more

If your looking for fancy, this is NOT the place for you. But if your looking for great barbecue, then I would give it a try. We have been going to this place on and off for 15+ years, any time were in the area we try going. Every thing we have tried has been very good..

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!
