“Boiled ribs”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I took one bite and put the ribs down. They were bland and boiled. What a waste of money. This should not be called BBQ

“EXCELLENT FOOD!!!!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We don't live too far from Paradero's but haven't had the chance to eat here. We ordered pulled pork sandwiches and an order of Onion Rings. We brought the food home and can you believe it but the rings and meat in the sandwiches was still HOT!!!!

The onion rings were very crispy and delicious. Some rings are very greasy but these weren't greasy at all. Will order again.

You get a GENEROUS amount of meat in the sandwich with a side of sauce. The bread was very fresh!!!!

They put the order in a brown bag stamped with their name and a business card stapled to the bag. Also, included was a menu. The menu on their website doesn't even compare to what they have available. The photos of the food in the menu makes you want to come back. As I was looking over the menu & already told my husband what I want to order next!!!

The restaurant is very clean and the staff very friendly!!!! The restaurant isn't too big and there is out door seating. It's in a Strip Mall. If you blink you will miss it. Walgreen's is on the corner.

Thank you for opening up and we wish you luck!!! You are so very close to us and we DEFINITELY will be back!!!!

“MMMMMM....BBQ”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Like so many good restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, this unpretentious gem is located in a strip-mall. You might be tempted to pass by this small space, but don't. The food is carefully prepared, presented with inspiration and served with a smile. For today's lunch, I tried the pulled pork sandwich. A generous helping of tender pork was slathered in a thick, spicy sweet sauce and served on a large toasted bun. Hand-cut french fries looked and tasted as good as my server, Renee, promised. And, it's all presented on a rectangular steel tray, complete with napkins, tableware, a peppermint candy and a business card. Classy presentation....delicious lunch. I'll definitely be back to try the ribs and homemade soup.
