Decided to try this place because of the reviews. Vert nice and attentive waitress. Since I am no expert on barbeque cusine I thought my brisket sandwich was OK and my wife thought the baby back ribs were good. Reasonable prices, very casual.

Visiting from the North, we were looking forward to barbecue and tried Down South, a short walk from where we were staying. Couldn't have been more impressed by the meaty, tasty ribs. Family members loved their dishes as well - pulled pork, sides, vegetables. The...More

This is a nice place for lunch. The vegetables and BBQ are quite good and the service is fast and friendly. Portions are generous and the price is right. There is very little atmosphere.

Great service, great ribs and sides. Small hole in the wall place, but neat and clean. Best BBQ I have had in years. I have been to many BBQ restaurants in Jacksonville and none compare. Looking forward to going back and trying something different.
