“Worse spare ribs ever”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Spare ribs taste was horrible and the onion rings burned and oily. Chicken dry. The only good thing was the fried green tomatoes.

“Greasy, unfriendly”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

Not really up to standard - maybe it was an off night.

“Worst BBQ EVER”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

I eat BBQ all the time....was in Miami on business and was told to try this place by my cousin. It was terrible. When I visit a BBQ joint I normally will get a combo platter of Beef Brisket and Pulled Pork. I can tell a lot by getting these 2 main staples. The price for this platter was $17!!!! Couldn't believe it. I was on a expense report, so it didn't matter too much. The pork was terrible. It tasted like it was out of a can. The beef brisket was dry and really bad as well. The BBQ Sauces were no good either. Overall...STAY AWAY!!!!
