I've been to a lot of BBQ places near Orlando (Ellie Lou's, Four Rivers, Pig Floyd, Sonny's...) and this one is the best. It's located next door to The Alley, a nice blues bar with live music. Very good brisket, excellent greens, not too expensive.

The food is great, but its a bit pricey. I had the brisket, it is comparable to 4 Rivers they are $5 more per half pound. The Ribs were amazing and fell off the bone better than 4 Rivers. The pulled pork was also tasty....More

My wife and I had lunch here while in town and were very happy with the food served. The pulled pork and brisket was out of this world. The lunch specials are very good value. Service was fast and friendly.

The venue was very cool-looks like an old gas station, even with sliding garage door. There is outdoor seating but I ate inside. The cashier was well informed of the foods. I got the brisket and the sweet potato fries. Everything was good but have...More

We stopped in for lunch and was served quickly. The burnt ends were the best we've had - moist and tender but not fatty. The Cole slaw was tasty and my son said the beans and collards were great. I noticed they sliced the interior...More

This place has a great downtown location with lots of outdoor and some indoor seating. Whenever possible I try to support local business over the big chain restaurants. The bbq here was sadly average, nothing you can’t get at many other places in the area...More
