We were tipped off about this place from a friend who knew we would be out that way. She said it's a must do. You can't make bad BBQ and stay in business since 1947! Now, I'll admit we were lucky. We hit this old place after the weekend rush, as the soccer game my daughter was playing in didn't... More

Went there for the first time yesterday. The food here is the one we will compare all other BBQ joints too.

Everything we've tried is good. I added a single rib to my small pork plate. The thing that I really liked about the meats here is there's no taste of additional flavors or spices . Just good old smoked meat flavor.

Found this place listed in an article titled "Best 9 hole in the walls in Florida". Boy was it!!! It is located in a large screen porch. Been owned by the family since 1947. Service was very friendly and fast. Prices were great. Its packed so you may have to wait a few. As we live close we will be... More

A throw back of small town BBQ open air building. Ok yes it is small town spot. Nice folks cooking, serving, busing. Ok again same folks. The ribs were smoked just right, the chopped pork again smoked well. The sides beans, slaw, potato salad good. All in all a nice spot only open in the fall & winter.

I lived in Lakeland 30+ years ago and was introduced to peebles. I thought it was the greatest bbq I'd ever had. Was in Tampa this week on business and thought I'd bring some home for dinner. SO disappointed, got a rib and a pork plate,, the ribs were dry and tough, the pork was average,, the potato salad and... More

If you like the tangy barbecue of the Carolinas, or the smokiness and spice of Texas or Tennessee, don't bother. While I can appreciate the molasses or sweet barbecue of KC, it is not my favorite, and Peebles goes even further in creating barbecue that is nearly too sweet to eat. The "sliced" beef looked like chopped beef. While that... More

Only open Thurs-Sat. Busy always with locals and visitors. Picnic atmosphere, inside only (fans, no A/C). I like all of their menu items, however, I find the ribs too tough and dry on the outside. I prefer my ribs to fall off the bone. I am always happy with their pulled pork but it is not my go to for... More
