“One of Best for local BBQ”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

Meant to stop for long time - pass the restaurant/shop center when go to Winter Haven on way to other places. Made it today. Very enjoyable. Husband had 1/2 rack baby back ribs (lunchtime) and the beans and slaw and unsweet tea. I had the Wet Woody - which was tasty, but for me a mistake! I can handle BBQ meat of various kinds without sauce and add a little taste - the "wet" is good when I eat it, but that comes back to "bite me" (old age setting in on my digestion!) - french fries crinkle cut good, slaw tasty (I like the lite mayo kind which this was - chopped with just enough mayo) and I had sweet tea. Husband commented, that he used to like Chilis ribs, but they been letting him down, these were improvement over Chilis these days! He did say they could have been little bigger - maybe at nite-time they are. Next time I may try the other varieties of BBQ (not wet) - or even the "big burger" - all sounds worth a try. I keep seeing their "buy one, get 1/2 off on one after 3pm" coupons, may go back after 3 and do that. Cost was about what we've come to expect "going out" in central Florida ...about $21 for the food/drink then add tip. Came out about same as Jimbo's in Lakeland - slaw just a little better here.
