Best BBQ in this area for sure! Good vibe and quaint country atmosphere. This place has been around for years and years and in this industry that says something. I've never had a bad experience here.

Went here last Sunday about noon. Did not care too much for the family style seating and the service was horrendous.

I've never had a bad meal here. I make it a point to hit this place every time I come to Miami. The ribs are tender and tasty. The pulled pork is great. All the sides I've tried have been great. You won't be disappointed.

The best baby back ribs.....the best corn souffle.....the best baked beans.....Overall, just amazing food. Its hot in there, and the wait is long....but man is it worth it. Really delicious bbq with no frills. Just really good comfort food. If you have room, have the banana pudding dessert....amazing.
