Decent BBQ

My husband wanted to give it four stars for the record and he is a bigger BBQ lover than I am. Meat was tender and portions were large. I would have given it three but it was good. I liked the pulled pork and ribs the best.

We saw a lot of different rib places in Naples and decided on this one because it had good reviews. We were not disappointed. I had the ribs and brisket combo. I chose the baked potato and the baked beans. The ribs were wonderful. Very tender and I ate them all! I was so full, I couldn't eat all of... More

On a recent visit to Naples, we popped into Michelbob's one night for dinner. It was that good we had to make another visit before we left. The ribs were delicious and just fell of the bone, the Cowboy ribeye was delicious. Next time we visit Naples we will be in for dinner guaranteed

This is a must for our family - been coming here since they opened. While we also have had ribs shipped north, but you can't beat freshly prepared ribs. The chicken and steaks are also well worth it, for those who are not rib fans. It is a relaxed atmosphere with great service!

We stopped in here for a late lunch, as it was convenient in our travels. We were seated right away and had drinks straight up. Although it was 2:30, lunch menu was still available. We tried four of their BBQ meats between us: Half rack pork ribs; BBQ chicken breast and two of their sausages: Spicy (and it was!) and... More

You can't beat them in either quality or service. Although off the beaten tourist path, it is totally worth the 15 min drive!! The food is fantastic and the restaurant is SPOTLESS. THE SERVICE IS FANTASTIC AND THE PRICES ARE MORE THAN FAIR I honestly can't review the desserts as we are too full to ever try any!! The sweet... More

This BBQ establishment has been a part of naples for many years and is consistently good. While it's not BBQ of the south or of the Carolinas, it's the best Naples can get. I had the pulled pork,rib, and chicken combo. The beans a corn are good side choices. The onion rings in the sweet sauce is a good way... More

This is not fine dining but if you are looking for good ribs in a casual setting this is the place for you. The inside is decorated with lots of Coca Cola Memorabilia and it's a bit cluttered looking but that simply adds to the charm. I normally

Ribs and pulled pork were served barely warm, should have sent back, but what was worse were the sides. Served in small plastic cups were grocery store potato salad and coleslaw, definitely not homemade! Then they actually just gave you the single serving of Mott's applesauce still in the container! The ribs looked like they had been sitting around too... More
