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!

I have to start by saying I lived in Memphis for many years, so the bar I set is high! This lil hole in the wall is not excellent but it was reallllll good. BBQ was moist and smoky, ribs meaty, moist. We loved the jalapeño sauce. Their other sauces were goog as well. Brisket had good smoke ring but... More

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!

I had the chipped pork, which I really liked. The French fries, baked beans and Brunswick stew are very good, especially the beans. Friends had beef and chicken BBQ which they said was very good. Place smells great! Excellent service, all the tea you can drink in pitchers on the table. Hole in the wall, but, hey, they are usually... More

Excellent pulled pork. We buy it by the pound, along with their wonderful pint sized sides of baked beans and coleslaw, when we're visiting family in FWB and will bring it back to Sarasota with us. Their sauces are very good as well. I highly recommend Kinfolks if you're craving Bar-B-Q and are in the Ft. Walton Beach, Shalimar or... More

This place was very hard to find. We had read such glowing reviews so thought we would try it for lunch. We were very disappointed, to say the least. The sides were the best part of the meal. The chopped pork was very mushy and the ribs were tough. I like ribs with the meat falling off the bone. I... More

A local, not a chain, Bar-B-Q Restaurant that has super smokey delights. Our favorites are ribs, chicken dinners with brunswick stew as one of our side choices. We often call in an order and pick it up for home. Plenty of food to enjoy again tomorrow. Not open weekends, sad, but we love it so, we still go back when... More

First of all let me say that there aren't a lot of BBQ places in theFWB area so maybe compared to the others in this area, they may be the best as other reviews have said. For us it was just average. We went for dinner and had a combo platter. I had the chipped pork and ribs (2) and... More
