Very good BBQ, a little on the pricy side for a BBQ place. But nothing on the menu will disappoint you.

My family has been eating here since 1990. We've seen it switch owners a few times buy its always been great. If you cone during lunch time you'll be surrounded by locals. Everybody stops here on their lunch break for some good bbq. The worst part about this place is having to choose which side dishes to order with your... More

After many disappointing attempts to find good Florida barbeque, I was ready to give up! However, on a recent trip back to SW Florida from the Keys, we detoured a bit north on Hwy 1 just to give this place a try. Hands down, the best barbeque we've had anywhere in the state of Florida.

Was recommended by our hotel for real BBQ and it delivered! Great menu selection, healthy portions, and excellent friendly service. And an interesting twist is everyone sits at long picnic tables so you meet and talk with your table mates. Prices very reasonable as well.

I make this review with some trepidation because of the very favorable following Shiver's has from both Homestead locals and visitors to South Florida. But the truth is, as I tasted it, that Shivers's has tasty but not exceptional or even very good barbecue. You won't complain about what your served but it's nothing to rave about either. It's not...

Good day to you folks! I appreciate the review...just wish it was better. My wife and I brought a lot of recipes and expertise from our restaurant in NC and apologize that it didn't live up to your expectations. We hope you give us another chance when you're in the area. The only other thing I ask is if you... More

This is one of the best places to have BBQ any time. The ribs are amazing and to top everything off you can order a dessert or have the amazing sweet potato casserole.
