“BEST BBQ in South Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

PABBQ consistantly gets high marks for food quality and service. Friendly staff and an excellent menu with reasonable prices make this a favorite.
Try the baby backs, the brisket, the cornbread, the buttermilk cake...and SWEET TEA to wash it down. There is always a special which is for the really hungry.

“Great ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

In South Florida, you CANNOT beat their ribs. Specials every day.
Good food with prompt and attentive service, Very informal, just as a rib place should be. Enjoy.

“Ended up here by mistake - Great Mistake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

After driving around looking for another restaurant someone had suggested we gave up and stopped here. Reasonably priced, fun atmosphere, and great food. Loved my BBQ ribs! Wish I could go back and get some more. Ended up being one of my favorite restaurants while in West Palm Beach area.

“Stay Home”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Okay..We used to be die hard PA BBQ regulars, from their very beginning on Park Avenue my family would gladly wait for the BEST BBQ anywhere in Florida. The last time we were there was over 5 years ago and the reason for that was 3 trips with raw chicken on the inside and burnt on the outside very poor service...Well 5 years wasn't long enough, while the service was very good, the food was far from it. The BBQ chicken that I had looked like it was from a Cornish hen very small and was very very fatty and tough. The baked beans tasted as if they were on the verge of being bad, highly sour as if they cook them in vinegar. The corn on the cob was as if they soak it in water for 24 hours before they cooked it. It was very mushy and should have been fed to pigs on a farm. The mac and cheese that was highly recommended was not good at all, the pasta was soggy and the cheese mixture was worse than anything Kraft passes off as mac and putty I mean cheese. Please, please whoever owns this place..go back to your roots, get those original recipes and find an original chef that can cook basic food this place was a huge disappointment.

“great ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

we went to this restaurant after driving around looking for something to eat. we hit a gold mine, the food was great. the first night we ate there the special was all you can eat chicken bbq. so so good t came with two sides. I had the greens which were delish and the coleslaw. hey give you a bowl of there homemade pickles and they are really good too. you eat one and it is weet when you eat it and after it's in your mouth it gets spicey but not real hot. I've ever tasted anything like it. you can buy jars of them at the counter. so good we went back a second night late in the week and the special was ribs and chicken which is what I got. not disappointed at all. will be making a trip back next time I'm in flordia.
