Yes, it's a little hole-in-the-wall place in a strip mall. However, if you're not going to take 12 hours or so to make your own BBQ meats, come here. The pulled pork is awesome and their cole slaw is some of the best I've ever...More

This is an unpretentious dive with great food served by a delightfully surly wait staff that is the best pulled pork, brisket, and chicken around (certainly better than the chain BBQ places) with a wide variety of sauces--my favorite is Great Smokey which you have...More

I found a great BBQ place in Ponte Vedra (just south of Jacksonville Beach). It is a very small place in a strip mall so don't let the size of the place keep you from trying it. They are more a lunch spot than a...More

This is a nice small shop with very friendly service and great tasting food at reasonable prices. I had a half-rack of ribs and have never been served this much meat in a half rack. It was cooked to perfection, the sides were like those...More
