Went to Shivers for lunch the other day and was completely turned off. First thing was the waitresses,( they must own the place or something) they were slow,rude and pretty much could care less about the people inside the restaurant and what they might need. Second thing the food was mediocre at best and way over priced not to mention... More

Eddie, Thank you for your honest review. I sincerely apologize for the lack of service from your waitress. Most of our servers have been with us for 10+ years (none of the servers are owners) and are almost always on point in giving you the best experience at Shiver's. I noticed that you had given us a 5 star review... More

I was working in Homestead last week and took some business associates to dinner and we all had a really good meal. I had the sliced brisket, one the guys had their pulled pork and another had their jumbo chicken wings. All of our dinners were great, service was good and they are reasonably priced. They have picnic table style... More

Kind-of a Homestead landmark. Food's great, with the ole time BBQ atmosphere. Beef, chicken, and pork are all there. With pitchers of beer.

If you're into great barbecue at a family-friendly joint, Shiver's is the place. Picnic-style tables and a decor of old commercial posters set the tone for a casual dining experience where the important part is the food. Entrees come with two sides. I had the pulled pork platter with Collard Greens and BBQ Beans. The pork was excellent - a... More

TA rates Shivers BBQ really well and we had to check it out. We each went for the full rack ($18.69). The cole slaw was tasty, not too sweet and Hubby tried the Hash Brown Casserole for one of his two sides. It wasn't served hot enough but tasted OK. BBQ beans were good but not exceptional. Family-style seating at... More

We stopped by based on another phone app, and were NOT disappointed. It is family style seating and was quite crowded on the Sunday night we visited, so we chose to order takeout. Portions were enormous, sauces delicious and the entire meal was just plain good from start to finish. I had the 'regular' size pulled pork. Enormous portion for... More

We arrived at noon and found a seat along the picnic table style dining immediately. Ordered corn fritters and brisket burnt ends for starters. Both were really good! The burnt ends were tender and had great flavor. Their home brewed sweet tea was so good! Two of us split a pulled pork sandwich and shared cornbread souffle and french fries... More

Can't count the many times we have eaten there. When I worked I went with my crew. At night I went with my family.

Stopped for lunch and had the pulled pork and babyback ribs. Although not competition que and ribs (GBA certified judge) some of the best tasting bbq I've had at a BBQ joint. Presentation, tenderness, and taste were on point. Will come back next time I'm in town.
