“A good find on our way home”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

We went to the new Outlet Mall in Palm Beach and were looking for a place to grab a bite on the way to the airport. It was around 3:30 on a Monday so it was pretty slow. The waiter came right over and was a really nice guy. He brought us some spicy pickles that they sell on sight. The fried pickle appetizer was just ok. They were a little on the greasy side but the flavor was good. We just didn't eat too many of them cause the grease pooled as they cooled off. Monday was a deal on ribs so that's what Jack ordered. I opted for the pulled pork sandwich, Carolina style. Jack really loved the ribs because they were a dry rub rather than slathered with BBQ sauce. My pulled pork was a bit messy to eat....had to eat some with my fork cause the contents spilled out when I picked it up. There was lots of meat and slaw but the pork itself was on the dry side. The table sauce helped but it was still just ok. The manager came over and gave us a coupon to redeem for a jar of pickles on our next visit because we were first time customers. We thought it was a great marketing idea. We
will go back next time and give it another try because it might just have been a slow Monday.

“Still around so it must be good...”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We stopped in about 5 years ago when we were here vacationing. When we drove by and saw that it was still here, we put it on "the list". Can't be disappointed when you drive up and there are not 1 but 2 police cruisers in the parking lot! We had a party of 7 and were seated promptly. Mom (83) and Dad (87) opted to split the ribs - more than enough for each of them.
We all had something different, so it was like going to the buffet as there was soooo much food!
Ribs were delicious! The pulled pork was not fatty - as it can be at other places.
The service was great. Kept our drinks full and was attentive without being a bother.
Prices were reasonable.
Can't wait to go back!

“A favorite of our family when visiting Palm Beach Gardens”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

After a week of enjoying fresh fish in the area, we make it a point to have Barbecue from Park Ave. They are terrific with carry out. My teenage son love baby back ribs and this place does a great job with them as well as pulled pork. Not as fancy as many restaurants in the area but very reasonable prices.

“Great ribs and very friendly service”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

Great ribs. We had the half rack with slaw and fries and the ribs and shrimp combo. Highly recommend the ribs. They serve excellent BBQ sauces. The restaurant is very clean and the staff are very friendly. We discovered by accident while shopping in the neighborhood and decided to give it a try. Definitely worth the stop. We will be back.
