This is BBQ that should not be missed. It is cooked in a smoker, so it is moist and flavorful. The sliced meats, like the tri tip and briscuit are tender and lean. The best we have tasted anywhere. The ribs are cooked perfectly and the portions are so large that we had enough leftovers for two more meals! The owner brought us small samples of the meats to help us decide on what to order and shared his experiences when he entered the BBQ competitions. We ordered dessert, even though we were totally full, because so many of them were homemade. We decided on the pumpkin bread pudding and apple cobbler a la mode, both served at the perfect temperature and delicious. The servers were courteous, efficient and very friendly.
The only negative is that we live in California and can't return until our next vacation in Cocoa Beach.

We came in with a group of 22 people. Service was great though. They accommodated everyone, got our orders correct, were on top of refilling glasses. It was a great visit. Food was great. Would definitely go back.

Went here based on yelp reviews. Must say I was a little disappointed. The first table we were seated at had ac blowing on us like we were in a wind tunnel. The hostess was very nice and moved us. Had the tri tip and baby back ribs which were ok, but nothing like the reviews raved about. The beef was a bit fatty and the ribs were not fall of the bone as I was envisioning. side of colewslaw was not so good. Garlic bread was ok. Honestly on par with Sonny's BBQ. Service was good

This place is amazing BBq for those with an appetite. The ribs are dry rubbed and have great flavour. Oh, and that are over a foot long for a full rack. They also do great brisket. And finally if you go for nothing else you must try the deep fried Oreos. Heaven on plate. Our Waiter was awesome and the owner came out and greeted us personally. Good fun and beers are $2.
