It is not in the busy shopping center. Local people love it. The style is still from 60s'. Great food. It is the best Bar-B-Q in my life.

Don't miss it... this is the Best option when you are looking for BBQ Ribs and more. For some people can be a little far but the drive is totally worth it. The quality of food and smily faces are the best!

Easy win. Excellent food , great friendly service. Hard to pick a favorite, but the sausage bomb is very popular with my friends. I love the corn bread soufflé, it's the only fiendish I have considered putting ice cream on.

Authentic old time Florida bbq. Pulled pork and sauces were outstanding. Try the corn soufflé for something a bit different from the run of the mill bbq. Service and cleanliness are marginal but what do you expect from a 50 year old bbq joint. Come for the food.

The food was GREAT!! We had the BBQ combo plate with Cornbread Souffle - Oh! MY GOODNESS!!! yum. But the ribs were just as amazing. It's not a place to go on your anniversary - it's rows of picnic type tables inside a hall with goofy signs and things all around...but GO!...in your blue-jeans and enjoy it all! Wished we... More

I am now addicted to the sauce. I want to go back and get some more. Tender smoked pork and amazing greens. Love it, love it! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's amazing that only one wall was left standing after Andrew roared through but that flavor was rebuilt

My wife and I were driving home on US 1 from Homestead looking for a place to eat and were not having much luck. We then saw that Shiver’s parking lot was full and decided to give it a go. Right away we were pleasantly surprised by the service and the general ambiance. It was friendly, relaxed, and family oriented.... More

If you are a BBQ lover this is a place for you. Try spare ribs or hickory burger. Good local place with nice prices and friendly staff.

The BEST BBQ in South Florida, hands down. Finally! A real BBQ place that I don't mind driving an hour to get to. The sweet potato casserole is DIVINE. I could probably eat the entire casserole in one sitting. The sauces are perfect. And the service is the type you'll never get anywhere else!
