Had not been there in years - glad we returned. Surprisingly extensive menu all around bar-be-que meats . . . . . had the pulled pork sandwich and fries - too many for me to finish; but I knocked off the pork in a flash. Many choices for sauces. Smiling service! You sit at round picnic style tables and under... More

We were in the area and decided to stop for lunch based on other TripAdvisor reviews. The place is somewhat of a dive, which most of the time equates to good BBQ. Unfortunately, this was not the case during our visit. Honestly, this was some of the worst BBQ Pork I've ever seen or tasted. It had the texture and... More

It had been a long time since I had eaten here. I was in the neighborhood and went to see if it was still there. It was. I had the Pulled Pork sandwich with french fries and sweet tea. Service was quick and friendly. The meal was great and the sweet tea was very good. Price was very reasonable.

This classic Fort Lauderdale roadside favorite serves up some of the best North Carolina BBQ (as reported by new Florida residents from North Carolina). We had a battle of the BBQ's with our new friends and they said this was their favorite hands down. I'm no expert on the difference between North and South Carolina BBQ but they'll tell you... More

They do Carolina style bbq. I love the pulled pork sandwich. The meat is always tender and plentiful, the bun is delicious and the vinegar slaw is just right on top with some golden bbq sauce. ( they have other kinds, but the golden is my favorite.) my husband likes the chicken wings. Many time my little son and I... More

What a fun place. It's everything you'd expect and want from a good BBQ place. We saw this while driving to our destination one morning, and decided to stop for dinner that night. The waitress could not have been nicer. You can see the ribs being cut in the kitchen. There is ample outdoor seating available (fans to keep cool),... More

For those that know how hard it is to find REAL Carolina BBQ, this is a gem! They get it right with all of the compliments of collards, okra, Cole slaw, black eyed peas, etc. Great vinegar based sauces and super friendly staff to help with choices. Walk up to order at counter and all outside seating. All great bbq... More

This is a little hole-in-the-wall joint that serves great BBQ and every other Southern fried food you can think of and salivate for. I pass by this place, which is South of Commerical Blvd. on Dixie Highway in Oakland Park...just North of Fort Lauderdale. I was just there last week and it started to rain, but my little girl, my...

Dixie Pig is an old Florida style place - building houses the business, and a few diners; with picnic benches scattered outside and plastic roll up shades for inclement weather. The food is a mix of typical barbecue types, none of them outstanding, but not awful, either. It's good if your in the neighborhood, but not worth a trip from... More
