“Iconic BBQ Legend”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

I've been going to Peebles BBQ for over 30 years now and it has never changed; same people, same good quality food, same location, same building.. Family owned and operated I don't know how many hundreds of pounds of ribs I have consumed there in my life but each has been consistently good and finger licking good. I ship these ribs by FedEx to my Dad in Michigan at times when he gets a hankering for them..

Reviewed August 6, 2012

Haven't been in awhile but I remember it as wonderful barbecue.... not much atmosphere but that is part of the charm of the place.... only open during the winter time

“Excellent Chopped Pork”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Some of the best Bar BQ you will ever get, The chopped pork is my favorite. They have the same menu each season, the only recent changes are the addition of sweet tea and chicken. They only have 3 sides, baked beans, cole slaw and potatoe salad. All are homemade right there. Dont go there and expect elegant and fancy tables and surrondings. You go there for the food. They are only open Thursday Friday and Saturday and are closed in July and August. No Air Conditing, they just open up the sides and let the fresh air in. Welcome to Old Florida Bar BQ!!! Just like it was in the 1950's...A must stop for true Bar BQ lovers..The sauce is also homemade. If you dont like the non/air conditioning or the waiting sometimes for a table you can always call in a take out order. They do as much take out business as eat in...Family owned and operated since the 50's

“You can smell the aroma as you drive around the corner!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

In April 2012 I had the pleasure of dinning at this unique smokehouse. From the outside it looks like an old style cabin drawn out of the woods. Inside you will find almost a cross between a "pub like" atmosphere, with a summer camp feel. The windows are all screens to allow the heat from the smokers to escape. The smell inside just makes your mouth water.
For us Canadians, as we call it pulled pork, they call it chopped pork. For under $8 Canadian, I ordered a plate of the small chopped pork dinner, (served on paper plates), a nice size portion of pilled pork on the side with a small tub of the best brown beans I've ever had! And of course, another tub of awesome homemade coleslaw and a large piece of bread.
They also serve ribs and and fresh iced tea. They make their own camp coffee, which is thick but a wonderful flavor. The servers were friendly and will to answer any questions. They even invited us to see the racks of ribs smoking in the smoker. Everything was delicious and I would highly recommend visiting this smokehouse. You won't be disappointed.
