We ordered the St Louis ribs for 2 for $22 and got an entire slab of ribs with 4 sides and garlic bread! The only down side is we had to order the fried okra as an appetizer as it does not come as a side-even for an up charge. The tea is good and the send you with one... More

Dianne's is located on FL Hwy 301 in the heart of Hawthorne. I stop there whenever I'm in the area because it is just that good! Reasonably priced and tasty. The wait staff often asks if you want to take a glass of iced tea with you as you leave!

On a long car trip with the kids, we grew tired of Chik Fil A (though still think its the best fast food option)... so we looked for something different on TripAdvisor and were delighted to find Dianes. It's BBQ lives up to its great reviews (outstanding pulled pork) and the folks serving us were wonderful, even giving my kids... More

We stopped here for lunch as we were passing through central Florida. What a nice surprise! The service was friendly and fast. The food was homemade and delicious! We tried the BBQ chicken lunch plate with homemade BBQ-beans and coleslaw. Wonderful! We will definitely stop there again the next time through. And the price? Two lunch plates and two glasses...

Stopped by for lunch. We had the all you can eat beef platter. Meat was great! I did not care for the beans but my boyfriend loved them.

We had to stop for gas and my husband said there was a Sonnys BBQ. Well it changed hands to sonny tillmans daughter and she has brought back the way Sonnys used to be. The bbq beef sandwich was to die for. Tender and not over cooked. Fell slam apart. I ordered chicken with collards and Mac n cheese. Homemade.... More

They don't excel at breakfast, but you can't beat the smoked chicken or the BBQ beans. Both are excellent. We make a point of stopping every time we are on 301 in that part of Florida. We also get a large container of BBQ beans and chicken to go and eat them for lunch the next couple of days.....mummmm!

Terrible is the word that comes to mind when dining at this establishment. The meat is dry and lacks flavor.
