A "hole in the wall" almost invisible to passers-by offers fabulous barbeque at fantastic prices. The usual beef, pork, poultry and hot dog options cooked to order with generous sides of slaw, baked beans, corn on the cob, etc., etc.are family favorites up and down the beaches. Limited seating, but loads of take-out attests to the good value here!

We had a wonderful lunch here. Wally served up delicious pulled pork. All of the sides were great too. This is a great place to run in and grab lunch!

Order several different dishes. All were Fresh and Tasty. Huge Rack of BBQ with tons of meat and falling off the bone, Meats have natural flavors of meat. They offer a variety of sauces to condiment your food. Excellent service. A good place for Solid BBQ

I can't believe this place got such good reviews! Three of us stopped for lunch. The pork BBQ was dry, unseasoned and soaked in a liquid to make it appear moist. The baked beans tasted like Bush's Baked Beans. On the positive side the staff was friendly and the toast was good.

We found this place using trip advisor and it didn't disappoint! The locale is nestled in a shopping center so it can be difficult to see from the road. Nevertheless, the food is superior and worth the trouble of finding it. We had pork barbeque sandwiches and the corn bread bites as an appetizer. Yummy!!!!!

Ate here at a slow time. We were the only people dining. I'm assuming Wally was the server. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about his meats and sauces. Food was delicious. Way more than we could eat. Highly recommend and would go back if we lived closer.

It certainly doesn't look like much from the outside and it would be extremely easy to miss in a very non-descript strip mall, but if you are a BBQ fan, you will not be disappointed. Our group had a little bit of everything -- ribs, pulled pork, brisket, chicken, and it was all great. Not sure I'd ever had corn... More

Absolutely the best BBQ I have ever had. And at 1/2 the price of most of the other restaurants near Sawgrass. Of the 5 different restaurants we ate at here. By far the best! Highly Recommend !!!

Staying at the Marriott Sawgrass and grabbed a full rack of ribs for takeout. AMAZING! Great deal for the price. Highly recommended!
