One of the best smoked ribs I have eaten plus great side dishes and other menu items. Never tasted anything bad at this eatery and the price is right. They have a few tables and one outside but it is mostly a take out restaurant.

This is not the easiest place to find as it sits off 301 in Parrish near the P.O., but they don't need to have big flashy signs as their reputation precedes them. Word of mouth is the best advertisement and my family and I have told many people about their wonderful B B Q. Their vegetables are good, too, especially... More

Very good BBQ, done in-house. Sides all homemade, too. You will NOT find better mac and cheese anywhere, believe me. I usually go for the chicken. DH orders pulled pork or ribs. Order at the counter, cafeteria style. Always enjoy our meal. Always clean. Always welcoming. Nice folks. I believe they are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Check before you... More

Just moved to Parrish from Venice, Fl today and my wife and I were totally exhausted and beyond hungry. Quickly looked for a local restaurant of any type just to grab something and end the day eating. Given the area, honestly didn't expect much. It was pure luck that we picked C&K Smokehouse, and boy were we surprised and delighted... More

Wow! We have eaten here before and loved it. Our friends recommended their smoked ham for the holidays. We ordered the whole ham and four sides (mac & cheese; green beans; baked beans and garlic potatoes). The food was unbelievably delicious. We will make this an annual New Years Eve tradition. This is a mom and pop place with family... More

I was in the mood for something different...tired of burgers. I happen to be in the area and thought to myself...perfect. I got a pulled pork sandwich. It was absolutely delicious. So tender and juicy. I got the sweet and spicy sauce which was not overbearing at all. I have had their Mac and cheese and their garlic potatoes in... More

This is by far the best BBQ I have ever had. This is a family owned "mom & pop" restaurant. It is small, and not easy to find, but worth the drive (we drive 20 minutes to get there). But once you have eaten here, you will be a huge fan. Carl and Kim work hard to provide the very... More

We've had C&K's BBQ many times and their meats have always been good, not exceptional but good enough to travel the distance to go there again. It is a small place but they do have limited seating inside and out. All but once we have elected to carry out. Customers order the food and it is brought to you or... More

Really awesome southern soul food. My favorite is the pulled pork dinner. You get a huge helping of pulled pork, two good size portions of sides (choose from mac-n-cheese, baked beans, fried okra, the BEST collard greens, green beans, the BEST GOLDEN SMASHED POTATOES dripping with buttery goodness, omg!). Whenever I'm showing homes in Parrish I always try to take... More

This restaurant is located in a brand new building complete with it's smoke house in the back. When we drove into the parking lot we were immediately lured inside by the warm sweet smell of smokey BBQ. I've eaten in many BBQ establishments and this one has some of the best ribs and chicken I have ever tried. I am looking forward to returing to try their pulled pork and the other side dishes like, coleslaw, baked beans and potato salad.
