I love BBQ and Shiver's is the absolute best. In my opinion it is not even close. I visited two weekends ago with my family of 5 on Sunday. As usual, the service is simple and efficient. The food is unassuming and just plain delicious. We had brisket, baby back ribs, spare ribs, pulled pork and chicken. It was all... More

Everyone loved it. Great local place. The perfect place for lunch after visiting the Coral Castle and before the long boring drive down to Key Largo.

Got here around 7:30-7:45 and they are out of brisket!!!! Think that's kind of early on a week night. Left work early, drive over 30 minutes to get here.

vidbems, We're so sorry about that! We had just returned from vacation and cooked our normal amounts that we would on any given day. Fortunately and unfortunately, we sold a lot more beef that day than we typically would. We cook the beef overnight so there is no way to add more if we're running out throughout the day. Once...

Every item that we tried was delicious, but the sweet potato soufflé was amazing! And, we tried quite the assortment (pig trio, rib trio, pulled pork, 1/2 chicken dinner, and sausages)! Definitely on our list of places to dine again.

I highly recommend this place to eat BBQ. I took some teenagers to eat there and they loved it. That is a great indicator on the quality of food. Service was very good too. Get there early b/c it gets packed.
