“tasty and inexpensive.”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

tasty, generous portions, and inexpensive. Good for take-out, don't plan on sitting there for your meal.

“Hands down best BBQ in Collier County--Perhaps Florida”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This nondescript carry-out eatery is the best I have ever had. I have been calling in orders for about 7 years. Heard about it through word of mouth...As they don't really seem to advertise. The place is run by a family that lives upstairs. The ribs fall off the bone--literally...I don't like coleslaw--love theirs. Baked beans are excellent as well. Pulled Pork sandwich is also great. I have never had a bad meal here and it is consistently the best BBQ I have ever eaten! Worth the drive to Golden Gate.

“Loved their ribs”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

Going east on Golden Gate Parkway to reach the Brown Bag is worth the trip. It's take-out only, so you get to see them smoke up the blackened building in person. A feast for two (ribs and chicken plus fries and sides) gave us leftover chicken for the next day at a very low cost. And, of course, the ribs were outstanding!

“Great BBQ secret”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

We ordered the feast for 3 adults and 1 child, we had enough for another full meal. Great ribs and chicken without the heavy smoke flavor. The sauce and sides are OK. The onion rings get a little soggy in the to-go box. The star here is the meat. Don't get put off by the location. It's an easy in and out at a light and if you order ahead, you won't be there long.

“BEST BBQ AROUND. FEED A FAMILY OF 4 FOR $30!”
Reviewed March 19, 2011

GREAT food. Fall off the bone chicken and ribs. Sometimes those little hole-in-the-wall places have the absolute best food and this place is a perfect example.
Great bbq chicken sandwiches ($4.71) and ribs (full pound $12.75) and the best onion rings and cole slaw I've ever had!

FYI...Don't pack the kids in the car to eat here. Get the number and order over the phone, then go and pick up. Cash only.

Get the Brown Bag Feast: 2 pounds of ribs, a whole chicken and 3 sides (fries, coleslaw, beans and onion rings) for $34.00!!!!
Every person in the area raves about how great the food is here, and now I understand why,,,
