Awesome food, been going since it opened, way better than Four Rivers. Brisket is the best I've had in O-Town.

This is not a fine dining establishment its a cafeteria style bar b q joint serving good food and cold beer. I had a pulled pork plate. The meat had a nice smoked flavor. The serving was free of fat. My two sides were sweet potato casserole and Cole slaw. Both were good. Loved the Texas toast. Beer was very... More

I've been here multiple times and the food is always great. I always get the pulled pork and it's very very good. You even get a free ice cream cone with a dine in meal. On our latest visit I actually saw a guy with a cup of Rootbeer put his cup under the ice cream machine and put ice... More

...but you have to eat lightly in preparation. I visit this restaurant 5-6 times per year. It is consistently good. The Texas Plate combines beef brisket and smoked sausage, so along with the side items, it is a meal that will fill you up. I like the buffet line approach, the ample iced tea, and of course, the free soft... More

Yes this restaurant is cafeteria style and thank you for that because I do not need a waiter. I purchased the travelzoo deal and it was honestly hard to spend $40 on 2 people, had to get 3 meals. The brisket was nice and I favor the pulled pork. The beans are a southern style, I prefer a sweet style... More

Although the food was just ok, the restaurant was set up like a cafeteria setting--no waiter or waitress. My food was warm--it was not hot and I was disappointed.

Delish, fast, and lots of variety. I am not a huge fan of the BBQ restaurants in Central Florida, but Cecil's Texas Style BBQ is one of my favorites! The service is always quick, the food is always hot, and the sides are awesome! We eat there after church on Saturday night! In fact we ate there tonight. I had... More

Real bbq should be hot off the grill, dripping with juices & tender. Not here. I ordered 1/2 Rack Ribs with two sides. The carver pulled out a rack wrapped in plastic cellophane & cut my portion out. What? I love ribs and Ive never seen that before. Since the restaurant is cafeteria style where you slide the tray along... More

Great food at a great price. When you first drive-up you know you are at a traditional BBQ place and when you enter you feel right at home. You get a friendly greeting from the meat cutter as you walk in and he takes the time to not only say hello but help you with the selections offered. From there,... More

I went here because my boss was taking me to lunch. Let me start by saying that I don't really care for BBQ. However, it's a free lunch so I can't argue. Since my boss took me here for lunch about a month ago-I've been back THREE MORE TIMES. The beef brisket sandwich on texas toast is PHENOMENAL! I put... More
