Fantastic

Whilst passing through we stopped off at this Port St Joe bbq shack. The food was fantastic as we're the serious faced ladies serving from within. As soon as you scratch beneath the surface, their friendliness and warmth comes through. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.

Paul's is carry-out only, unless you can't wait to get home and decide to eat some in the parking lot. We've had the pulled pork and ribs and they both were fantastic. It's one of our constant stops now when in the area. The worst part of buying from Mr. Gant is smelling the delicious aroma while driving home. It's... More

This is the best BBQ I've ever eaten! I don't like beans but I tried them and I must say, I like beans now! Meat was so tender and tasty! I have never eaten Collard greens but I wanted to taste them. Not sure I will learn to eat greens. Loved their coleslaw

Great Home cooked BBQ - get your order and go sit by the bay and enjoy. Hungry Man meal contained everything to sample - Chicken, Ribs, Pulled Pork - seasoned just right and BBQ sauce on the side, two sides (Collard greens were delicious) and the homemade Hot Peach Cobbler (well one word yummy). I got to meals my order,... More

Avoiding the worst of a Canadian winter in the Florida Panhandle and was referred to Paul Gant's BBQ in Port St. Joe. Our first effort to go there was ended by a sign saying open Thursday, Friday and Saturday so don't plan to go there on any other days. From the road it looks totally unremarkable that is unless you... More

A small trailer type operation but by far the best BarBQue in Florida. Try the Hungry Man..Ribs, chicken, pork and the best baked beans around. Take your meal and go to the park across the street and on the bay. Find a table and enjoy. We go there whenever we are in the area.Just great.

If you like BBQ, you know that you have to search out the random and obscure BBQ joints to get the best. Well, this is one of those spots. Order the "Hungry Man Special" and you will be a customer for life!

outstanding ribs, big ins, spare ribs cooked perfectly with that just a slight tug off the bone. beans were good too, not just some doctored up van camps, and fries were well tended. pulled pork had a fine smoke ring and flavor packed bark. portions were large and cumbersome and lasted well into the afternoon. first rate bbq in every...
