This food truck is great for BBQ and side dishes! Better get there early though, or they may run out of your favorite entree. If you want traditional BBQ, you're at the right place! Pretty decent bang for your buck, too.

Now that I have your interest, from the above mentioned movie; "Best damn barbecue I ever had"! The best brisket around! Anyway you try the pork, shredded, baby back, or regular, you will definitely be impressed!

I often purchase the smoked salmon, it is always moist and tender and delicious. I like it even with the barbeque sauce.......A very yummy, easy meal.

I LOVE BBQ, but not here. You will find better prices at the fair. And that's sad. It is 6/10 BBQ at best. Probably one of the smallest pulled pork sandwiches I have ever paid $7 for. They must season it with gold sprinkles.. Out of a trailer...

The ribs were my favorite. We had pulled pork and brisket. This is a trailer at a gas station so nowhere to sit but pretty good. Prices were kinda high for a trailer at a gas station.

Check your portion, I purchased a pound of brisket,it looked small so I weighed it when I got it home and it came up short. Very expensive at $17.79 for a pound of dry meat interspersed with lumps of fat. Service was extremely rude at the Beneva Rd stop. I would not recommend.

After several years of trying out the various BBQ joints in the Sarasota area, I can confidently say that Alday's has the best quality, consistently tasty meats hands down. It's ironic that they operate out of trailer smokers in a couple of locations. Don't go for the atmosphere, it's going to be a picnic table at a gas station. Do... More

One of the best places to get BBQ in SRQ ! They have two BBQ stands located on the corner of Bahia Vista and Beneva Road and a new location on S.R. 70 and I-75, only 1/4 mile off the exit.
