Kind environment. What a wonderful experience! Easy to order. Kind workers when we arrived to pick up our order but that was just a bonus. The food was ample and excellent. There was soooo much good and I’d order any and all of it again....Look forward to another visitMore

Newly opened in Clermont and hands down the best BBQ for miles!!! The ribs and chopped pork were smoked just right and the fresh-cut fries were excellent. A variety of sauces including a Carolina Mustard that was on point & not sweet, as some tend...to be. Mac & Cheese tasted homemade and the deserts are dangerously tasty. Even having eaten BBQ all over the country this new Gem will be a regular spot now.More

The St Louis Meat Mix was tasty and 1/2 chicken delicious. The onion straws were crunchy goodness. The fries were fresh. The cheesy grits were great.

What a great BBQ joint. The food was excellent. The brisket, pulled pork, ribs, sides... Everything was spot on. The pulled chicken was a tad dry, but nothing their excellent selection of sauces couldn't fix. Even with the Covid procedures in place, the staff was...very helpful and friendly. Attentive and polite. The prices were also very fair for good quality BBQ. Highly recommended.More

The ribs were outstanding and the service was excellent.The place was clean and Jeff the manager was everywhere helping the staff and customers. Larry, one of the younger employees,was most helpful during the course of our dinner. We have had ribs all over the country...and these rank on top with any that we have eaten. It was well worth the drive and we will come back any time we visit Orlando.More

As I stared at the menu on the wall the man behind the counter asked me if this was my first time in Ellie Lou's. After saying yes he went to great lengths to tell me all about my options. He was very helpful. I...ordered the pork and chicken combo platter, beans and fries. Within minutes my tray was delivered but my chicken was with bones and I ordered it off the bone. My server took the tray and returned in another minute with the chicken de-boned. The pork was chopped, not the stringy pulled type, and it was delicious. So was the chicken, nice and moist. The beans were a combination of baked and kidney beans in a savory sauce loaded with meat. The fries are hand cut and double fried so they are nice and crisp but after taking my tray to fix the chicken, they were not very hot. I didn't complain. The staff could not have been friendlier. Two servers stopped by to check om me during my visit and another checked with me as I was leaving. I heard from another neighborhood business owner that the folks who own Ellie Lou's are former Disney Cast Members. They definitely delivered Disney-type quality and service.More
