If you're a connoisseur of pulled pork, you may be disappointed with Shriver's pulled pork sandwich, despite what other reviews say. I ordered here today for the first time, 11/16/2016. I requested a large pulled pork sandwich with lots of mild bbq sauce, cole slaw and hush puppies, all to go. Opening the container, my first thought was, "this doesn't... More

I am such a fan of their cole slaw and sweet potato casserole! Yeah, most folks rave over their meats, which are wonderful. But, it's the sweet potatoes that call me in.

The burnt ends are at the top of my list each trip to Homestead. Family owned and operated. I have not eaten a bad item off the menu. Whatever you do, order the jalapeño cheddar grits! To die for, for sure. Right on the main highway through town and if staying in Miami, worth the 35 minute trip south.

After a long day of traveling er went to Shiver's based on reviews. Hubby and I shared the Rib/Pulled pork platter plus a dinner salad. Salad was basic, but cold, crisp lettuce and a good blue cheese dressing. Ribs and pork were delicious. Bother we're tender and moist. Had corn bread pudding - delicious, but sweet enough to be dessert.... More

Meal was pre cooked, cold and really wasn't anything as I had heard. People around us including servers looked at us like we were from outer space! Service was slow and bad.

Mp, I'm really sorry about your experience. I'm not sure what you mean when you say the food was precooked. All of our meats are cooked fresh daily in our smoker and finished on the grill. We hope you will give us another shot. More
