Best BBQ Ribs in Treasure Coast

This is a down home popular place with, I believe, is the best BBQ in the area. On Saturday early afternoon there was a 30 minute wait for a table. The place is rustic, with picnic tables with seat backs. There are all the BBQ usuals, with pretty good sides. We both had ribs....she had a... read more

After reading mixed reviews about Dale's we decided to try it. My wife and I both ordered the baby back rib special for $12.25. They came out quick and they included two sides plus a drink. The ribs were a little tough and were only served lukewarm. There was 3 different sauces available and they all seemed to taste the... More

I have been going to Dales for 35 years and would go anywhere else in town for bar-b-que. They have to best pork sandwich in town and nobody can beat their coleslaw

I came in for what I thought would be a well prepared BBQ, was I disappointed. The sides were overcooked as if they had been prepared hours before and the beef was dry. The wait staff took my order, delivered it and that was basically all I ever saw of them. The salad bar was in disarray with droppings/spillage all... More

I went out to eat at Dale's because a friend recommended it. let us say that I was very disappointed. I had the Super Bar-B-Q Beef sandwich. The beef was very dry and the waitress said that was how it usually is because of the cut of beef( she brought me a sample of pork, it was a bit better... More

Had company visiting, so I called in an order for a family of six combo. Picked it up, got it home and was shocked to see what they consider a meal for six, very few pieces of chicken that was greasy and the ribs were tough as leather. The sauce they provided was almost straight vinegar and tasted sour. It... More

I've been a big fan of Dale's over the years but noticed that the BBQ has been inconsistent in the last year or so. The staff is great and the sides are good but sometimes the meat isn't fresh. It smacks of yesterday's reheated and embellished with sauce. Today was the worst. It was a busy lunch and my companions... More

Tried all the other chains in the area which I found to be good, but expensive. There is a baby back rib special Mon-Thurs. We asked for two dinners and received the food so fast. It was a pleasure to get fast service and great food for around 12.75 each for a full rack of ribs. The sides were good... More

Great BBQ and ha been for years. The Jumbo pork platter is what I like with the extra garlic bread. If your not that hungry try the BBQ pork sandwich special. The price is right and when you look around and see all the locals you'll know your at the right spot. Warning, lunchtime is really busy so time it... More
