I finally stopped for dinner after driving by this curious looking BBQ restaurant numerous times while on Anna Maria Island over the last few years. There are only 11-12 tables, so waiting was to be expected on a Saturday night. While we waited, we were encouraged to help ourselves to the drink coffin which had a large variety of imported beers and non-alcoholic beverages. After a considerable wait, we had the opportunity to order items from a non-traditional BBQ menu which featured Vegetarian, Indian and Creole influenced dishes along with 6 choices of ribs. We had the spicy BBQ wings, Chicken Tika, pork fried rice and Mongolian ribs which were smoked and coated with a terrific Asian style sauce. All were well prepared and delicious. The only disappointment was the slow and indifferent service. Oddly, there was only one server while there were two hostesses which contributed to the slowness of the service. (Take out orders were brisk). Despite this fact, beach life is supposed to be slow paced so the longer than average wait and slow service is acceptable in my opinion for such unique offerings.
