We came here upon the advice of a local. I am not a big fan of BBQ, but I like trying local places. It was Friday night, and the place was busy, so there was about a 10 minute wait. No bar or anywhere to wait, so we just sat outside. The restaurant has long picnic tables, so if you... More

This restaurant is set up with a bunch of long picnic tables. The food is amazing and I recommend it for anyone that loves barbecue. I had the baby back ribs and chicken. My husband had the pulled pork and chicken and we both loved our meal. The sides were a lot of fun and had some unique things. Definitely... More

Had to drop my car off in homestead today. Went to Shivers based solely on the tripadvisor reviews and the fact that I love BBQ. Shivers did not disappoint. Pretty reasonable prices for very well prepared food. I had the baby back ribs and chicken with hush puppies and cheesy hash brown soufflé. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich... More

We were in the Florida Keys and on the way home and asked TripAdvisor for some choices. Shivers wins big time for being exactly what they say they are. Great food, great old-fashioned atmosphere and amazing servers. It was Tuesday evening and they weren't expecting a big crowd and they got it anyway. The few servers were amazing as they... More

It rained on the 4th of July and it seemed half of Homestead ate at Shivers for their BBQ yesterday. My neighbors and I had great BBQ chicken and ribs yesterday. The salted caramel chocolate pie was excellent. Best cole slaw ever! Friendly wait staff!

We chose to stay in Homestead instead of Miami. I used TripAdvisor for the hotel too! Since I don't know the area and didn't want a chain, I searched. Since hubby loves bbq, Silver's won. The reviews sold me. The restaurant is like home. We went Friday 6/27, hit Key West Saturday 6/28, plotting our lunch making sure we would... More

My companion and I stopped here for a late lunch on a weekday. Seating is bench style, seat yourself. There was no wait and lots of room. I ordered a pulled chicken sandwich with hush puppies. The BBQ was not the best I've ever had, but it definitely was better than average. There are a variety of BBQ sauces available... More

Always a fun dining experience, the South Florida institution is a must-try. Their baby back ribs are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Burgers are super tasty with a great smoked flavor. And we love all the side dish choices (sweet potato soufflé, corn soufflé, green beans, collard greens, yummy cole slaw, crispy tater tots and hushpuppies...).... More
