The food is outstanding but the to go orders are very very slow. This time around I placed the order the day before and one hour after it was suppose to be ready, I was still waiting. Not acceptable. Last time I waited for a large to go order was 1.5 hours but I thought it was just a one... More

It has survived hurricanes more than once, but I wonder if it is losing it's touch. My wife and I have eaten at Shiver's almost 50 years, whenever we were in south Florida and have sung it's praises for most of that time. However, this year, while in the area for the NASCAR race, the quality of the food was... More

Shiver's has been around a long time. We all agree every time we are in Homestead that we get our money's worth of food. The people who had the combo loved it, the sausage was excellent, just the right spices. The service is friendly and quick. The atmosphere is Shiver's and is unique. One should have eaten at Shiver's when... More

Absolutely delicious bbq place! Get a lot for your money. Try to go there during the week days. For some reasons, they give you bigger portions and wait is shorter.

This place is an establishment. It has been around for 64 years since 1950 and when you walk in you are definitely transported. The corn soufflé is to die for, one of the best hot wings and great pulled pork sandwiches. The chef dispatches with food like missiles from a tiny window, which is pretty funny. Overall it felt like... More

This was my first time here and this place hands down has the best BBQ in South Fl. The food was amazing and service was great. This place is not a fancy restaurant but don't let that fool you. If you want great tasting food you have to go here!

Had not been in a while, but I'm really glad I went back. The babyback ribs were fall off the bone delicious! Fried pickles were a great starter. Service was good as well. I will definitely be back.

If you are expecting a trendy, new age BBQ place, this is not for you. This is a classic BBQ place with absolutely delicious food with an at home and family feel. Definitely try the corn casserole, it is mind blowing.

Visited 11/1/14, nice little place. I had the pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries and cole slaw. It was all very tasty, but I did add bbq sauce from the sauces on the table to the sandwich. My husband and friends all had the ribs, my husband enjoyed it very much but my friends complained it was too dry... More
