Great for pepperheads

Small store with a phenomenal inventory of hot sauces for any heat level. They have a website and will ship. Don't miss if you like heat!

We came here 5 years ago on our 25th anniversary and back again. Staff is awesome, tasting bar is terrific. And their new sauces are really good. So glad they are still around!

If you love sauce that bites, this is the place to be. The gentleman behind the counter served one sample after another and gave some explanations of each one. Spaces ranged from mild to hot and we're really good. You can also order online for refills!! Must see while in Keys.

We happened on this shop. We tried various sauces, their private label and others they carry. Some are HOT, be prepared. Purchased a few, one BBQ that is exceptionally good, can't wait to make ribs with it.

You can pretty much sample any of the salsas and hot sauces they have. Our host, Emily, not only provide the samples narrated by heat factors in Scoville units, but also added recipe suggestions for what to serve the sauce with. She had some great ideas. Buy some to bring it home with you, or ship it!

The staff here is very knowledgeable, and friendly. Aka, Excellent customer service abounds. Having tasted every hot sauce in the shop, the staff asks the right questions- to determine just what sauces you will like the most. Then, they use their expertise to guide you through a mouth watering, sinus cleansing tasting experience. And the BEST part... tastings are FREE!... More

Emily was so very helpful and knew in just a matter of minutes what kind of sauces (and blends) that we would like. As always, a great selection and a great place to visit when in Key West!

We stopped here after an extremely disappointed sunset sail and it did not take Cameron long to cheer us up. He was excellent customer service. He set out all flavors and was so friendly. Emily talked to myself while my husband tasted the sauces and they were just great. Nice to b treated so well. And by the way the... More
