“Tasty !!”
Review of Hot Spot Barbecue

Hot Spot Barbecue
Ranked #17 of 686 Restaurants in Pensacola
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $5 - $20
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: Authentic Southern Barbecue Cooked on a Real Oak & Hickory Fire! Opened in June of 2013, we are family operated and sincerely appreciate your patronage. Our Goal is to serve the very best Southern Style Barbecue. Only the finest meats are selected, seasoned with our special dry-rub, and cooked in our outdoor Smokers. Nothing is deep-fried. We use a combination of recipes, from family and friends, and all quality ingredients. White Bread is traditional and we will provide more if you want. We truly care about your dining experience and expect our service to be friendly and prompt. If there is a special condiment or something extra that you desire, just ask. Our signature sauce is tomato-based with a little black pepper “kick” to it. We do not cook with sauce, so it is added at the time of serving. Order dry, if you prefer. There will be warm sauce on the table. For take-out, an extra side of sauce can be provided. Thank You!

Double charged me for food and then recharged my card again. I loved going here until today. Would not recommend. Plus got home and my ribs were burnt. Horrible

the pork sandwich was very tasty and the sweet tea was some of the best I've ever had. Also everyone that worked there was so friendly!

We ordered take out and the sides were missing. Do not order chopped chicken, it is not chopped but perfectly sliced chicken you could only get from one of those processed checked breast. Stale bread and dry ribs. Sadly, it was terrible and very disappointing.

Never would have expected to find BBQ this great in Pensacola! As a Tennessee native and Texas transplant, I'm a BBQ critic. These folks made some of the best brisket and chopped pork I've ever had, and the sauce was unbelievable! I only regret that I haven't eaten here sooner. A must-try for any visitor or resident of Pensacola!
