I've had BBQ from Texas to the Carolinas. I couldn't have guessed there'd be anything close to good 'cue in South Florida. Well, this place is it. Great char on some spare ribs, crispy crackle on the baby backs, juicy pork and brisket you can dress up as you like it with their various sauces. A nice array of sides... More

Absolutely hands down best BBQ my husband and I have had. We live in Ft. Lauderdale and were nearby when we wanted BBQ lunch. We will however make a drive again. The chicken was moist and not overcooked. The ribs were delicious! Love the sauces and the corn soufflé is a must.

The BBQ was great! The sides were excellent. We didn't have room for dessert. Prices are a bit higher than other places, but definitely worth it as the food was good quality. Seating is at picnic tables and is shared among the visitors. Don't expect your own table, instead be prepared to sit next to strangers enjoying their own food.

This is a real BBQ joint decorated with ceiling fans, long shared picnic tables with rolls of paper towels, tin signs, chalet type beam ceiling and painted landscapes on its concrete walls. The service is friendly and relaxed - no one is in a hurry here. A mix of families, couples and groups of guys were enjoying the laid back... More

No frills BBQ, with incredible taste. It is truly southern BBQ, right down to the picnic table seating and paper towels on the table.

This place is a must for BBQ. It is very simple with picnic tables side by side in the entire restaurant. Great selections of pork, beef and chicken. Between us we had all three and everyone was very pleased. They have the sauces on the table - five different ones to choose from which I loved! There might be a... More

Wish this place was in Fort Lauderdale, but I bet it wouldn't be as good up here. BBQ was perfectly what I would expect for Tennessee or Carolina BBQ. The place was just like any roadside BBQ joint I have visited in the south, and by south I don't include Florida. If I am ever back I will not hesitate... More

My all time favorite is "burnt ends", cole slaw, and baked beans. As long as my MIL is not with us, we can get in and out pretty quick no matter how crowded it is. Shiver's is the best Bar-B-Q.
