Had the pulled pork sandwich. Amazing. Tender. Juicy. Side of sweet BBQ sauce was awesome. Cornbread was delicious and fresh. Mac-n-cheese was wonderful. I will return back many times and have already recommended it to others.

Slow BBQ home cooking. Just like being in the backwoods... Getting served on paper. Smoky pulled pork, and baked beans. Refreshing cool cucumber salad (with a sugar and vinegar dressing). Snuggle up with your neighbor- large picnic tables for seating.

I have heard of this place for awhile, so we decided to eat here on July 4th. The food is served on trays covered with butcher paper instead of on plates, but that didn't bother us. I had the pulled pork. It was good and...More

Walking or driving by the food smelled great. The coleslaw and Au Gratin potatoes were really good. However the ribs and brisket were barely warmed. It would have been nice if they threw them on the grill to warm them up before serving. The cornbread...More

Voted Sarasota's "Best BBQ" 2012 and 2013 by the readers of SARASOTA Magazine. We're a locally owned, family friendly, fast casual bar-b-q joint. Community seating inside, picnic tables on our screened porch and outside in our garden area. Good selection of American beers, including artisan breweries, plus wine. Children's menu. Serving award-winning Pulled Pork, Texas style Brisket, St. Louis Ribs, Smoked Chicken, pastrami-rub smoked and chilled salmon, and 13 sides -- most vegetarian and many vegan. Oh ... and don't forget our entree size salads: both our BIG salad and our Southern Ceasar Salad!
