Classic pit cooked BBQ

Simplicity, perfected over many years yields a great smoked meat meal. You may have to wait for a table, but you can always call ahead for pick up. The ribs are exceptional as are the turkey legs (when they have them.) Everything on the short menu comes with house slaw, potato salad, and baked... read more

They have a unique potato salad that is almost like mashed potatoes. I don't usually like potato salad but I like theirs. Very good bbq. They give you sauce so you can put however much you want on it. It is always packed, so we usually get it to go. I would highly recommend it to anyone so likes bbq.

The BBQ was excellent. Service was fast and the crowd eclectic. I would highly recommend Peeples for classic southern BBQ. We were offered a behind the scenes tour. All is authentic and made on site. Don't let the exterior look dissuade you, it is well worth the visit. Open for lunch and dinner Thurs, Fri, and Sat. only.

If you want to enjoy the best Bar-B-Q anywhere, Peebles is the place to go. Nothing fancy here, just great food. It's a fun place to visit and can be very busy. Service is good, and you can't beat the prices on the food. I thought this Bar-B-Q was much better than Jack's Bar-B-Q in Nashville, TN or the Dickies... More

My family has been going to Peebles for over 30 years and had not been in the last 10 or so. I was excited to come into town last night and take my family there for ribs, as I've been talking it up forever. We got there around 7, and 3 of the 5 in my party had ribs. We... More

We haven't been to Peebles for awhile because we moved and it is not close anymore, but we decided to go for a ride and head in that direction for bbq. It was so worth the trip!!! Peebles hasn't needed to change much over the years, and they haven't to their credit. They do an exceptional bbq, always have, and... More

As a young girl my mom use to pick up all of us youngens from Max beach and then head to Peebles to pick up our white box of goodness. We went home and ate our box of great barbecue. Now I live just down the road many years later and my husband and I eat our takeout barbecue and... More

It may not look like a fancy schmancy restaurant from the outside, but let me tell you that the food that comes out on the inside of Peebles Barbecue is some of the best eating around these parts of Central Florida. It has been a family owned and operated restaurant since 1947. The barbecued ribs are so tender that the... More

We have been customers for many years. Wonderful pork ribs, baked beans and cole slaw. We always do take out as there is no air conditioning. They close during the summer months to vacation as a family.
