I have been eating here for years..the quality of food has been slipping for a long time . I am afraid it has slipped to the point of moving on for me..too bad.

If you like smoked meat this is a good place to go. Don't be fooled by the size or decor, was very clean and the staff was friendly. I had the combo plate which was ribs, chicken, choice of sliced beef, pork or turkey, I choose beef which was very tender. The cole slaw was fantastic. I brought home half... More

This restaurant is worth the drive from Pt. Charlotte, Sarasota or anywhere! We are so lucky to have it right here in Arcadia on S.R. 17. It is sparkling clean every single day, the waitresses are friendly and always accurate, and the food is perfectly prepared. The menu has something for everyone from fresh crisp gorgonzola salads with grilled chicken... More

My wife and I visited Slim's for lunch. We had about a 15 min. Wate. We were greeted quickil. The order was correct, which is becoming rare today. The ribs were very good, however I felt that for the price there should have been more on the plate. Good food, good service, a little pricey for what you get, but... More

We made a special trip to Arcadia on our way to Matlacha just to visit Slim's. We weren't disappointed. I had a quarter BBQ chicken with the wonderful potato salad. It was fall off the bone delicious. The prices were good and the staff was quick and efficient. Not a fancy place! They do serve beer in the bottle. I'm... More

I've heard the whispering of this hidden gem for a few years now of mouth watering BBQ that could be found at Slims in Arcadia. I had a sliced pork sandwich on Texas garlic toast with coleslaw, steak fries and some of the most phenomenal spicey BBQ sauce I've had to date. I've been hangry for a great BBQ place... More

A small local place with pretty good BBQ. Service is real good, friendly and helpful. The food was pretty good overall, two had BBQ chicken, one was good, other was dry. Ribs were good, beef was rare and well flavored. BBQ beans and Cole slaw fine, garlic bread pretty normal. Overall a pleasant lunch, would try again

We've been to this place twice and have had great food and service. It's a drive for us since we live in the Sarasota area but it's worth it. The food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. Don't miss the Florida orange cheesecake!
