This place was on my list because while driving past it, I always saw a crowd outside. We stopped by around 1:30 on Saturday and were told of 35 minutes wait but it was more like an hour before we were seated and the wait was worth it. We ordered three meat meal which came with four sides. Turkey was usual that you would find in other places. Chicken was good also but beef briskets were out of this world. No wonder they ran out of briskets few minutes after we got ours. We ordered three Datil sides and mac and cheese and they were all good. You have containers of 7 different BBQ sauces on each tables and they were all good. Overall a great experience and the whole family enjoyed it. We cant wait to go back.

This place is not much to look at, but the brisket is worth the trip. I've tried the pulled pork and it's pretty good - could use a little more flavor - but the brisket is just terrific. For the sides, I liked the Datil Corn, and the coleslaw is pretty good too. I've heard the Datil baked beans are good. Have not tried the chicken, (heard it was good), ribs (heard it was very good), turkey or sausage. There's a take out window and a dine in area. This place is getting more popular all the time, and sometimes they run out of food. They only make so much every day. When I was there last, they had just run out of chicken and ribs and that was right around dinner time.
Recommend!

Two of us shared a Rack of Ribs that was falling off the bone delicious with enough left over for lunch tomorrow. The best part was the friendliness of all the folks there and especially Lisa who set a jovial tone with her table to table management style, frequent assessments and announcements of what was still left in the kitchen... a necessary evaluation because when all the food is sold she closes. So don't expect to find as wide a selection if you arrive after 7 pm. Most of the tables inside were occupied but we gladly shared a table with a couple from Atlanta who were visiting St. Augustine. Clean with wholesome fun and great food for all ages.
