I found special plate of a Rib Plate diner to be exceptional. The 3/4 lbs of ribs were first smoked and then soaked in a special mustard based sauce and then roasted over charcoal to give it a crust. They were so soft and flavorful. Goodman's left some of the grizzle on the end of the bone which if love to chew on. The coleslaw was too watery and the beans, although very nicely seasoned with meat cuts and other special seasoning were too firm. My blueberry cobbler was delivered warm and with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Not at all too sweet! The small order of fried green tomatoes with a ranch sauce were to die for. On the issue of the spotty reviews of Goodman’s sauces: They are what I call unique. If you like sweet sauces these are not for you. The mild and hot sauces are basically the same base: Mustard, A-1, brown sugar, vinegar and the hot had black pepper added and I believe cayenne. The sweet sauce is made up by the chef. I ordered for takeout the Smoke Stack and found two layers of meat, one of pork another of beef, layered between buttered slices of garlic bread. This was not pulled pork nor was the beef brisket. They were thinly sliced barbecued meat. The ribs diner was less than 7 dollars and the huge sandwich was less than 4 dollrs and the cobbler was about 1 and a half dollars. The inside of the restaurant was neither remodeled nor fancy but it felt comfortable eat there. Great value hidden along the Florida coast. They do a lot of catering for all sorts of events as well.
