We are from Kansas City (home of smoked meat BBQ) and have a BBQ joint on almost every corner. Paul does a very nice job with his pulled pork and the price is very reasonable. Don’t forget the banana pudding.

Truck food - BBQ. Not bad. Had the pulled pork on a roll. Good serving and quite tasty. Bun gets very soggy and falls apart. Nice to buy the BBQ and go to the marina to eat in the car looking at the Gulf.

Good ribs and BBQ. The sauce is great and makes the meat that much better. Had friends try it also and they had same review.

We always get the sandwich special- a Boston butt sandwich piled high, chips and a drink. Then we take it to the marina jetty park.

This place has the best BBQ around. It's pick up/to go only so you can take it back home to eat. We loved the Boston butt that they do. Our whole family loved it.

They are only open 3 days a week; that can be good or bad depending on how you look at it. It gives us something to look forward to. No matter what you order, you can expect freshness & the BBQ is moist. They also...More
