Lots of great tasting food. Even the fries and coleslaw were tasty. Everyone enjoyed their food from ages 9 to 77. Bill was around $60 for 6 of us and we even had drinks.

Stumbled on to this restaurant on way back from Manatee Park. Fabulous BB Ribs and a 'fixin' bar. Varied menu of platters and sandwiches in a rustic atmosphere.

Nothing fancy. Just good eats

Love this place. I eat here frequently. I love BBQ. This place also has a cool, little "vittles" bar that they let you eat from when you order a meal. The feast for four is a good bet because it always leaves you with leftovers. They have great sweet tea. This is a place that is hidden - but the... More

What looks like a tiny little place turns out to be a sizable restaurant once you get inside. Clean and unassuming dining area. We were there at 6:30, after the evening rush. Everything was delicious. Our group had pulled pork and smoked turkey and the legendary baked beans. Portions were generous, service was good and the prices were very reasonable.... More

This is the second incarnation (I think) of a barbecue place in this location and easily the best. Southwest Florida is home to several great barbecue restaurants and the Smoke'n Pit BBQ is near the top of the list. It anti-stylish. There is zero creativity here. Just basic barbecue at a neighborhood joint. The staff is knowledgeable, engaging and pleasant.... More

Drove to North Ft. Myers and wanted a hot meal instead we got warm watery food. My pulled pork was warm at best. My husband had beef, it was warm & also watery. My guess it's all pre-made and that's not fresh food. The little bar of food (sides) was gross. The food looked old so seriously won't be back... More

Great Service too. Three of us had lunch, Chicken and all the sides were great. The ribs were a bit chewy on the ends, but tasty. Can't complain for the money, a good meal.

From the "leathers" parked outside I was expecting a rough kind of place - no way, clean, well organized, big selection on the menu, generous portions, friendly staff and quick service - that says it all except for it was delicious and cheap. I guess the bikers know the right place to eat.

Thank Leta T
