If you like good old-fashion southern cooking, this is the place for you! Florida's has barbecue, chicken fried steak, and catfish (I had the barbecue stuffed baked potato). You should arrive hungry because the serving sizes are ENORMOUS! But somehow you need to save room for a piece of their homemade pie (I had the chocolate pie and my friend... More

The daily special of smoothed pork chops with salad and collards was delicious and well priced. The service is friendly and quick. The peach cobbler was excellent. Great down home cooking.

We have been eating here for several years. Good BBQ, love the ribs, I like to order the rib tips which is the ends and pieces they can't sell as ribs. Fried catfish is really good, and I love the Sly Bowl.

Ate at Florida's Kitchen on a visit to Livingston based on friend's recommendation that it served "the best BBQ in Livingston". Other reviewers here speak of "best in Texas" or "best in country". I'd say it was good, not great. Certainly not even the best I've had in Texas. I order a two meat plate ($13) with brisket and link... More

Been coming here for over 15 years. Food is still okay but wait staff is now unfriendly and even downright rude!

You have to try the bake potato! It's the biggest, most delicious potato ever! Also, they have the best coconut cream pie I have ever ate! They have also been featured in magazines for their barbeque, mostly their ribs.

We've lived in Texas for over 40 years, and became residents of Livingston in Oct. 2012. Moving from Houston presented a challenge for our eat-out-regularly lifestyle because Livingston isn't Houston. Florida's is arguable the best BBQ in Texas and absolutely the best in Livingston, The ribs are fall of the bone tender, brisket is like buttah, the chicken fried steak... More

They made me a salad free of gluten - in a place known for friend southern soul food - they have a separate area to prep salads and chicken for those with allergies - How about that!!!! Good prices, great service. I hope they make diners and drive in's again!

Been there several times over the years. Crowd increase during the summer when the weekend Lake folk come up from Houston. Simple, clean, with sweet Tea..... BBQ is good. Traditional potato salad and veggies/cold slaw. FYI, the cake is slices ARE LARGE, Try it, and I will return.
