Don't Let Looks Fool You!

This less than alluring food truck serves some of the best BBQ and fixings you will ever eat! Gants know how to make ribs and pulled pork! Their beans alone will bring you back for more. Locals have them cater events all the time. You need to arrive early especially in the summer. Previous visitors... read more

Stopped for a sandwich and was a bit disappointed. The pulled pork didn't have much smoke. It was more like roasted with BBQ sauce.

We stopped by a couple times for our week stay at Port St. Joe and had probably the best baked beans ever (and I am a baked bean conasour.) It's not much to look at but the ladies that work there are very nice and helpful and the food is VERY good. You have to get there pretty early because... More

Stopped by during latest trip. The line waiting to order is what attracted us. We were not disappointed.

I am picky about my BBQ but read great reviews about this place. We decided to pick up a couple of sandwiches on our way out town heading back home. It was delicious and great value. We will try the ribs next time we are in Port St. Joe!

Located off 98 - right side of the road is a small trailer with tender, moist smoked meats! The sauce is not too hot and not too mild. It doesn't overwhelm the taste of the meat. Outstanding BBQ!

We were here for a wedding and stopped off for BBQ after the beach. We got 1 slab of ribs and what they call a 1/ 2 butt, the sauce was great and we also got the coleslaw and beans and collards EVERYTHING was spot on. Did I mention it was AWESOME and the best BBQ. Don't let the roadside... More

Our family loves eating at Paul's. We vacation at the Cape every year and enjoy picking up some of the BBQ and sides. Friendly service, good value, and excellent food.

Friendly quick service, Some of the best BBQ flavor in the Panhandle. Our son insists on eating here every time he visits. We love it also. Needs a bit more seating if you don't want take out. Obviously this is an outdoor setting.

I have been going to Paul Gants for BBQ ribs for the last 4 years when snowbirding in Potr St Joe and the 1st 3 rears they were wery good and a good value. This year the taste is just as good but the price almost doubled. $14 for 6 ribs has turned out to be a ripoff. If you... More
