Small Place, But Big on Flavor

Granger's is a local no-frills place that some might call a hole-in-the-wall. Its small and unassuming, many would pass it by without stopping in to give it a chance. I've only been in to have their steaks, and they are well worth the drive to North Lakeland. One of the things I love about... read more

Recommended by a member of the family we drove down from Orlando to try some good unchained food. A welcome and refreshing change from all the tourist places in Florida we were well impressed with the Ribs, Beans & Slaw we got for lunch which made the drive worthwhile. It is very apparent that this place is busy and loved... More

Grangers does an awesome barbeque especially their brisket and their steaks (only available on Friday and Saturday). Hours are a bit short and irregular and oddly enough it is one of those places where when they run out it is done. Also it is cash only.

We tried Grangers after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. It's small with limited seating so you may have to wait but boy is it worth it. We had the ribs and the sliced pork. The ribs may be the best we have had in Florida and the sliced pork was especially lean.

Not the best, but good. Small area. Good slaw. Sauce has a very good flavor. Tea is weak, for a southern joint.

I heard all the hype about this place and I really found it lacking. We went mid/early afternoon for lunch and they only had sliced pork left for sandwiches. No one was even there and the pork was okay. I've had better elsewhere. The main issue I had was that on the grill there was pretty much all types of... More

Grangers is a small, hole-in-the-wall sort of place, but the food is fantastic. We lived here for 3 years before we finally got around to checking it out and we will definitely go back! The food is available until they run out, and they're closed on Sundays. Great little VERY casual establishment.

We discovered Granger's a number of years ago. Like most we drove by on the way home for years before finally on recommendations from our neighbours we went for our first filet mignon, we have been coming back ever since. On this occasion we were a group of 18, most having the filet's, there were a few rib eyes and... More
