This is a stupid simply review. If you want GREAT ribs, go to Granger and Sons BBQ. Get past the outside appearance and just do it. You won't be sorry. YOU'RE WELCOME!!!

Granger's offers great local BBQ. Prices are good for the amount of food they give you. I can get 2 meals out of my one pork sandwich.

Over from the UK to visit friends and they took us to Grangers. Small place, so needed to book in advance, we arrived and were asked how we wanted our steaks cooking by Mr Granger, paid, got our drinks and were seated, food came quickly,...More

The sandwich’s are great lots of tender meat on a hamburger bun and the sauce is great. Now the sides are to blah for me . They need to doctor them up some ..

Stopped for lunch on our way to Tampa. What a pleasant surprise. Don’t be fooled by the exterior. The ribs are outstanding and not expensive at all. This I a must stop if you’re in the Lakeland area.

Outside looks deceiving- a hole in the wall, run down building on the outside but a quaint amazing bbq joint on the inside. Got our order to go and we’re not disappointed.

Really not a fan of their steaks, too much spice used while grilling, dont appreciate paper plates and plastic utensils for eating steaks, and they are too expensive for all that.

No, they don't. I'm sure of that. Only iced tea and soft drinks.
