Very delicious. All the meats were moist. The sides were perfectly seasoned. Highly recommend the cheesy grits. Also the baked beans were very good. Great atmosphere with outdoor netted seating. Definitely a favorite for barbecue.

Love going to Nancy's every chance we get. Everything is great but the brisket is my favorite. Collared greens are fantastic as are all of the sides. Glad we live so close but would drive all day for this place

While driving into downtown Sarasota on Pineapple Avenue, I noticed the easy-to-miss restaurant at 301 South Pineapple on the roundabout at Ringling Boulevard. Barbecue in Florida?

Voted Sarasota's "Best BBQ" 2012 and 2013 by the readers of SARASOTA Magazine. We're a locally owned, family friendly, fast casual bar-b-q joint. Community seating inside, picnic tables on our screened porch and outside in our garden area. Good selection of American beers, including artisan breweries, plus wine. Children's menu. Serving award-winning Pulled Pork, Texas style Brisket, St. Louis Ribs, Smoked Chicken, pastrami-rub smoked and chilled salmon, and 13 sides -- most vegetarian and many vegan. Oh ... and don't forget our entree size salads: both our BIG salad and our Southern Ceasar Salad!
