“eat here by accident”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

the restaurant of our choice was closed, so, this became our 2d option. very welcome surprise. we both had their special offering of hamburger/pulled pork/bacon on a hamburger roll accompanied by french fries. very good choice.

the waiter (Matt) was efficient and super friendly, which just added to the very pleasant experience. we will be back, and it will not be our 2d choice.

“Good new BBQ place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

The food was very good and all of the meat had a great smoke ring on it.
The spare ribs were cooked perfectly and came right off the bone. Some of the best I have had in recent memory. The sliced pork was still moist and very tasteful.

The salad bar was ok and had a decent selection but this place is not there for the salad eaters.

“Good food even though I'm not a BBQ fan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Took my son here as he is a huge Gator Boys fan. Jimmy being co-owner, we thought it would be a neat idea just to say we were there. I am not a true bbq fan and my son is a picky eater as well. However this turned out to be a decent place. I ordered the rack of ribs (lunch portion) and it was delicious. My husband ordered the pulled pork ... they brought out the sliced but when told it was incorrect they immediately corrected it. They refilled the drinks w/o us even needing to ask. Staff was friendly and attentive even with as busy as they were.

“Found a plastic glove in the cole slaw”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

The staff was very apologetic and comped our dinner as well as throwing in a slice of cheesecake. They said they make their staff wear gloves when making the coleslaw. The food was not anything special and we lost our appetizer after that. Wish I had enough presence of mind to have got a cell phone shot! Jimmy Riffle you better watch what you are putting your name on here. The "grand opening" is July 14th - we LOVE the Gator Boys and would look out for your best interests.
