Excellent homemade BBQ taste!

I've been eating at this restaurant for years and I'm always satisfied with the food. The ribs and chicken are delicious and their sweet BBQ sauce is excellent. Also recommend the bake beans and corn souffle; they are amazing. They are a little over pricey but it is worth it!

I think Shiver's offers the best BBQ in South Florida. Tender ribs & brisket, great sauces and yummy corn fritters. Definitely worth the drive to Homestead!

We're talking picnic tables inside in long rows, so this isn't the place for a quiet meal. If what you want is great BBQ and a friendly atmosphere - this is the place to go.

Me being a North Georgia native country boy, this is my kind of food. I've eaten here a few times, but the real test is my wife who is a vegetarian. I had the brisket platter. Very, very good brisket brilliantly cooked. My wife loved the corn nuggets, fried green tomatoes, fried okra (see did say it is not as... More

The ONLY good thing about this meal was the fried okra. Incredibly, compared to the rest of our food, this was some of the best we'd ever had. However, we weren't so lucky with our other choices. First of all, the serving sizes are quite small. "Jumbo" doesn't mean what you think it does apparently. The brisket was cold, as... More

This has to be the best BBQ I've ever eaten. The atmosphere feels welcoming, with the long tables for patrons to sit at and eat. The location is very far from the center of the city of Miami, but I always tell people that they must try Shivers, because it's savory.

Recently moved back to Florida after living in Georgia and Tennessee for over 10 years. Being in the Deep South for so long I became a huge fan of BBQ. I gotta say, Shiver's is as good as any place I've tried in GA and TN. The pulled pork is great, and the ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and delicious. Definitely... More

My husband and I were in Homestead and thought barbecue sounded good so we stopped in. It was a Saturday around 200, so the place was busy but not packed. We were seated right away and ordered quickly but it did take about 20 minutes for our food. We weren't in a super hurry so no worries there. We both... More

Stopped on our way through, waited about 45 mins to eat on a picnic table jammed with others. Loud, very loud. Ordered food, expected great food and service, but got basic service and okay food. I'd stop again, but wouldn't wait any length of time.
