Meat is very good

We went about an hour before closing. We picked the try everything feast for 2. We picked green beans instead of slaw, fries, and a baked potato since each of us got a side. We got to sample the chicken, ribs, turkey, pork, and beef. All of the meats were very good. BBQ sauce seems to be a... read more

This is a lovely little place. It's a little further down the 192 than you'd think to go, what with all the run down/closed down/abandoned buildings. Once you find it though, you're in for a treat. Really good BBQ, nice and simple. The staff were very friendly and even advised against getting anything in addition to the feast for 4... More

Great beef and pork bbq. The best baked beans anywhere. We visit at least once on every vacation to Orlando. Not a traditional chain restaurant.

I'm from CT. We decided to stop in here because we wanted to eat some BBQ. I can honestly say the BBQ in CT is better. The pulled pork and turkey was almost like deli slices. It was okay. The best part was the garlic bread..

We arrived after one in the afternoon and the place was fairly empty which was surprising for a Friday. I had the sloppy pork sandwich lunch special and it was nothing special from my perspective. The sauce selection was good and the portion size was fairly standard. This place has obviously been in business for many years but my guess... More

Had lunch here the other day. It was marginal. The sauce was not very tasty, the portions were not very large, and the meat was sub par. The toast and beans were pretty good, but that's about it.

Listen up my friends! I have been to restaurants from Pennsylvania to Florida and am very disappointed in the food at this joint. Way overrated! Save yourself the hassle and go down the block to outback and you'll have a better experience with a good rack of ribs, baked potatoe and the works. The food tasted old, and forget fall... More

After 3 days at Universal, finding this restaurant in Kissimmee was a great change of pace. I love finding local, long established restaurants that have tons of character. Not only was the decor was fun (love seeing friends & family photos), our waitress was great and the FOOD was wonderful. We were served a generous BBQ plate for 2 (really... More
