We stopped here en-route to Naples from Key West for lunch. The ribs were the best we've had. It's based on bench style sitting so you find a spot, service is quick and the food is great. Menu is concise - does what it says...More

We are traveling in Florida from Kansas City (King of BBQ). Shiver's hangs right in there with KC BBQ. We had burnt ends, beans and slaw. It was soooo good! Friendly staff.

I have lived in Homestead for many years and by far Shiver's is the best BBQ in town. The picnic table seating invites a family friendly atmosphere and the prices are affordable. The sweet potato and cornbread casserole are a must try when you visit.

Shivers has been around forever, or so it seems. It never lets me down. The food is consistently good and has the feel and smell of a real BBQ joint. Friendly service and busy... may be worth a call to check.
