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!

Been coming here for years. My first meal here was in 1992 a week before Hurricane Andrew. I do not eat pork so I'm jonesing for beef ribs most of the time. When I canot stand it any longer I make the trek to Shiver's. Some people go on pilgramages to Jerusalem, some to Mecca, I go to Homestead. Ok,... More

Shiver's is your classical BBQ joint, with wooden banks and tables, neon lightning, and that wonderful smell of smoked meat. The place seems cherished by the locals, which is always a good sign. I've had the ribs trio, and these were one of the best ribs I've had in a long time (perhaps only second to Fette Sau in Brooklyn).... More

We pigged out here!!!, everybody enjoyed the food, the combinations are amazing, it is a taste of the country. Not a chain restaurant so you feel that the food is not frozen or microwaved. Visit them you won't regret it. We gave them 4 instead of 5 because the food sometimes feel a little cold, and the plates are stainless... More

We recently stayed in Homestead, FL for two nights. Shiver's was a really neat, casual atmosphere. The food was good and service was great. Do not expect anything fancy inside or out. They have long tables with benches. This worked great for our family though and added to the charm of the place. Glad we stopped.

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
