Been coming for years and years when we visit Arcadia. Only downside is they close early on Sunday and aren't open on Monday so we have to plan around that. Oh, well, it's worth it.

Good food and great service but seating is too crowded and very noisy. Will get take out next time. Pulled pork was very tender but the very mild sauce they had was still very spicy not sweet like it said.

I had sliced pork. That was pretty good. But, I didn't care for the coleslaw or the baked beans - mediocre at best. And, a BBQ place is all about the sauce - I thought theirs was terrible. I won't be going back.

Off the beaten path home style bbq. Small, friendly atmosphere and even better food. We stopped in by word of mouth and the place was clean, with a busy lunch crowd. Great ribs, chicken was good and the pies are awesome, (had the kumquat pie)....More

This placed been here since 1957. Was just passing by, so you have to ask a local. Decided to have the rib dinner. Nice smoke and tender juicy ribs. Sauce was not my type.

We met friends for lunch at Slim's and could tell it was a local favorite. They would not seat us until our entire party was there, which is understandable as the place filled quickly. But we were seated as soon as everyone arrived, so they...More

Slim’ Southern BBQ was recommended to us first for their desserts with an “oh yeah, their ribs are good too”. Well, we were nearby today so we stopped for lunch. It’s been there for around 50 years we were told but it has a clean,...More
