The finest Barbecue in Homestead since 1950. Worth driving to for a meal or certainly an easy stop to and from the Keys (Get off the turnpike and head to South Dixie Highway and 280th Street). Everything is authentic and awesome! An old rustic spot in Miami's bedroom Agriculture/horse country. A must see and eat for all...natives or tourists or aliens seeking South Florida's finest! Giddy-up...

Since BBQ doesn't seem to exist around Homestead, this is what you'll get. Ok meat and average sides. Sweet potato soufflé is the best thing on the menu.

Quirky little place but had great food. You sit at long tables and get to know those around you. The waitress was very helpful and we went with her recommendations and were not disappointed. Very generous with their portions.

We loved the pulled pork, ribs, sweet potato soufflé (very sweet and yummy), green beans, baked beans, black eyed peas, and mashed potatoes with gravy! Great sauces to choose from. My kids loved it as much as the grown ups. The banana pudding tasted homemade.
