Best ribs in the area - no question about it

I like absolutely everything on the menu. Ribs are heavenly. Desserts are perfect. Service can be a bit uneven - but mostly adequate to good.

Florida's Kitchen is not at all fancy but the food is very good. The ribs at Florida's tend to sell out most days because they are so good. Her desserts are freshly made and delicious. It is well worth a stop at Florida's

The best ribs and catfish around. The decor is rather shabby, but who cares when the food is excellent. People come from all over to sample the ribs. You won't be sorry.

Well I wish I could write a bad review so it wouldn't be so crowded all the time. Florida's isn't known for its decor, nor it's fast service. No the tables and chairs don't match and I didn't come for their salads or croutons. The fried catfish and ribs is why you come to Florida's plain and simple. You Yankees... More

The food was quite good, but the restaurant was rather noisy. It was a busy night, though, so it was to be expected. The decor is very basic - nothing fancy at all. But if it's good food you want, this is a good place to go.

Ribs are always good here. Friday is fried chicken day. This is home cooked fried chicken at its best! Great service.

A co worker and I were working in the area and found this place on TA. We both had the ribs and were both disappointed. They were dried out and no taste. I loved the potato salad and the baked beans. I will give it another try but next time I will get the fried fish.

This little roadside spot is interesting, The sign outside says the "Home of the Comeback Ribs", and I will be coming back, The ribs were great, The coleslaw was bland and needs work. Fix that and you will get your fifth star! Great little out of the way, hole in the wall eatery.

what can I say that Texas Monthly and others on this site have not already said. This is down home food done right with wonderful ribs, great catfish and deserts that are a food group of their own.
