40+ years and still my favorite!

Live in the area, have been going to Shrivers for over 40 years. That alone should tell you something. Sonny's, Uncle Toms and others have come along over the years but the locals looking for GOOD ole fashioned bar-b-que still go to Shrivers. Baby Backs are yummy, chicken is wonderful and... read more

We were large party that came in from the rain (18 people). The place was busy and had no where to stand. Servers immediately were rolling their eyes at us, announcing loudly not to stand here. When we asked where we should stand they shrugged their shoulders and did more eye rolling. It was so bad, I personally would've left,... More

My wife and I were staying in Homestead for a night and I used TA to find a good local place. Without TA I doubt I would have found this place - it was off the main road and certainly doesn't look like much from the outside. It is for places like this that I love TA. Inside picnic table... More

Shiver's is a classic. Old style long bench tables, beer and BBQ! Best in Miami...sorry Shortys and Uncle Tom.

I have been coming here since I was a kid, and 30 years later it still impresses. Simple menu on the wall, community tables where you might have to make conversation with other bbq loving strangers, and a shared roll of paper towels as your napkins. The gals that take care of you appear to be seasoned professionals who know... More

Very good BBQ, my husband and I couldn't move when we had finished. The fried green tomatoes were excellent. We are not usually a fan of the family style seating however the food was so good we didn't care.

Stopped to eat here while in the area and was not disappointed. Great food! The cornbread souffle was delicious as was the sweet ice tea.

On our Florida Trip we came to Homestead and this restaurant. To be short: everything clean, great value for money and very good service. The rips were tender and delicious, pulled pork very good and the coleslaw creamy and fantastic. That's it.

Family style seating, with wild children and haggard parents nearby; Didn't matter. Service was super friendly and helpful. Large portions of delicious pork ribs, pulled pork, and brisket- all cooked to perfection. Will make it a point to return when we are in FL again.

The best BBQ I have ever had. We got take-out. I had the smokin duo sandwich, and it was great. The sides are what really makes this place amazing. Get the cornbread soufflé and sweet potato soufflé!
