Incredible bar-b-q beef sandwiches...tasty sauces...we always end up well-fed and happy... you can get as dirty as you want and nobody minds...totally casual.

The Lilaguide: Baby-Friendly Miami & Ft. Lauderdale

Yee-haw!” holler born-again hillbillies when they dig into the heavenly ribs with thick, smoky sweet sauce and butter-drenched corn on the cob served at this legendary local BBQ trio with a Broward branch. All sport the same fun Western decor as the circa-1951 South Miami original in which you'll dine on communal picnic tables equipped with rolls of paper towels, and though they ain't fancy, the vittles sure are affordable.
