“Meh. Eat there fast if you're curious, cause they won't last.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

My wife and I have eaten at Keller's twice now. I have had the pulled pork both times; it is not the best quality meat. Frankly the highlight of the meal would be their three sauces--they make the food delicious. The sides are also nothing to write home about. Pretty standard average barbecue. But if you are a fan of barbecue, they are worth trying. They will probably shut down soon though--the place is a ghost town and 4 Rivers tends to kill competition in this town.

“Keller's is back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

What we've always known about Keller's is that the BBQ is amazing. However, what's been in flux with the Winter Park location is the owners and the service. Not any more...

Three guys who know how to run a kitchen and create a top-notch customer service experience have taken what we love about Keller's (ribs, pulled pork, Mac n' Cheese, sweet tea, etc., etc.) and made this location a realized BBQ destination. We are there last night at the grand opening and, even with a gigantic crowd, the staff couldn't have been kinder and they worked really hard to make sure we enjoyed our food AND the experience.

Keller's in Winter Park is back! Enjoy.

“The Keller's Experience.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

On entering Keller’s we were greeted by a friendly staff and the sweet smell of quality BBQ. Add to this picture some faux cow-hide table clothes and an expansive Florida-themed mural complete with a swamp shack and gator and you’re ready for the Keller’s experience.

We ordered the beef plate with 3 sides. Keller’s offers a slightly smoky, thinly-sliced roast beef (vs. brisket). The meat was very tender and cooked to a nice medium. The macaroni and cheese was basic goodness: creamy and cheesy, and the gussied up canned green beans (essential for BBQ joints) had a good smoky pork flavor. The BBQ beans were a little too sweet for our taste on our first visit, but less so the second time around.

Like the beef plate, the Pulled Pork Sandwich had a generous serving of meat, was incredibly tender and slightly smoky. The oddly tiny side of coleslaw was crunchy but disappointingly bland.

During our most recent visit we ordered the Smoked Turkey Plate. We were excited about trying the turkey, and the smoky flavor of Keller’s really shined through. The style was a little different than the smoked turkey we’re accustomed to: the meat was sliced deli thin and grilled. We look forward to trying it on a sandwich.

Lest we forget the sauce. We enjoyed the richness and slight heat of both the original and hot BBQ sauces.

Beef Plate - $12.99 Smoked Turkey Plate - $12.99
Bar-B-Q Sandwich – $3.99
