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

Coming from REAL barbeque country in Alabama, this is by far the best barbeque I have found in south Florida. Not only is the food delicious and the sides amazing, the portions are very generous, especially the entree. Service is friendly and courteous and when it is all put together, a delightful experience.
