Great food and atmosphere. I had the brisket and pork sandwich with the steak fries and a side of baked beans. Many different sauces to choose from. Excellent service.

After hearing great raves about this place for the past two seasons, we decided we better try it before heading back north next week. We should have come here two years ago! A little difficult to find from the busy highway, but certainly worth the effort. The menu choices were most surprising and the food was excellently prepared and brought... More

Just go! This is a BBQ joint run by a real chef. I've eaten lunch here several times and I've never been disappointed. The pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches are delicious, lean and tender. The smokey sandwich is a combo of both brisket and pulled pork. Six different BBQ sauces, from Kansas City sweet to Memphis spicy to Carolina... More

Everything thing tasted great. We split the 3-meat platter-the brisket was perfect and the portions were big. It came with both garlic and corn bread, green beans with bacon and these amazing corn nuggets (plenty of other sides available). We will definitely eat there again if we're in Port Charlotte.

This is My Favorite Baby Back Rib Place. Whenever we have visitors and they like ribs, this is where we go. We also go when we are just the 2 of us. I like to order the full rack of baby back ribs, so I can take some home and enjoy them even longer. Also try their coleslaw with horseradish... More

We gathered with friends for our last supper before heading north following a snowbird Florida winter. The restaurant is small but serves big flavors. They offer the traditional St.Louis ribs, hot links, chicken, pulled pork and beef brisket to name a few selections. They have 6 sauces running from traditional/classic sweet to a excellent jalapeno mango. Sides include fresh green... More

Lunch prices are much better than dinner, so... More

Fantastic BBQ! My husband and I both had the sliced brisket sandwich, best brisket we have ever had. And the bun was scrumptious, a little crunchy and toasty on the inside. Gave our compliments to the owner as we left. Very reasonable prices, nice ambiance inside the restaurant. Will return for sure and bring friends!

Thank Zonicle
