It saddens me to read bad reviews about Peebles BBQ. I have eaten their food for many years while on the road as a truck driver. At one time or another I have ordered everything they offer and found it really good, at least for this "Florida Boy". For the people that find fault with the tables and no air... More

Food is yummy! Old fashioned smoked barbque. The place is an old tin and screen building, with a concrete floor, absolutely not a building with any up to date items; bathrooms are outside and there is no AC, but, if you want good barbque, this is a good choice.

Peebles is a great Old Style Florida BBQ place. The menu has just the best BBQ choices you could find. Every plate I have ever had comes with coleslaw, baked beans and their delicious home made potato salad. The ribs are exceptional. Every time I eat there I am reminded of going to a large family gathering. Not only is... More

We have heard for years how great this place is. The food was cold and grease. We had the pulled pork and the ribs and a1/2 of chicken. All of this was cold! Our server was told and did nothing. We had two small children with us. (6&9). We waited for services for about 10 minutes. The snowbirds have gone... More

The food is great, nothing fancy but the food speaks for the years it's been in business. Check the times open they are seasonal !

From tee ball games to now, our family enjoys the food at Peebles! Grandchildren will be enjoying very soon. Consistent food, excellent bbq. Old decor but fresh paint has helped. Love this place.

Whenever I'm back in the area where I used to live many years ago I go back to Peeble's BBQ. Only the prices have changed in past 40+ years that I've been by there. All of the food is delicious and the same folks are still cooking it in a pit inside the open air building. I'm sure the flys... More

Picnic-style atmosphere in the country. Great-tasting barbeque...whether you are wanting pulled pork, beef, or ribs, you won't be disappointed! Their sides are delicious...slaw, beans, potato salad. You'll be glad you came. Peebles is family owned and run. Feel right at home and leave full and satisfied. Polk County loves Peebles BBQ!

The building is a little deceiving, but the food is great. Best barbeque and best slaw and baked beans and potato salad too. Great atmosphere, homey.

My wife and I somewhat fashion ourselves as barbeque aficionados and have eaten at some of the best BBQ joints in the country. Peebles is most assuredly a top tier destination and we are grateful that we now live only 53 miles from there. This place is good enough to travel 106 miles round trip just for lunch, which we...
