What places serve the best BBQ in Florida?

Florida might not carry the clout of Texas, Kentucky, or Kansas City when it comes to BBQ, but as the above BBQ road trip can attest, the Sunshine State has lots of amazing barbecue joints! In addition to those featured above, definitely check out the following BBQ restaurants in Florida:

  • Smokin D’s BBQ, St. Augustine. It can be easy to drive by this roadside pit stop, but if you’re in St. Augustine and looking for a hearty meal for a fair price, try Smokin D’s. It’s a tiny place with almost no seating, so grab some take-out and bring cash… and a hearty appetite!
  • 4 Rivers Smokehouse. With multiple locations around the state, 4 Rivers has blazed its way through Florida in recent years, opening several locations to meet BBQ demand. Known for amazing brisket and slow-smoked meats, the Smokehouse Burnt Ends and Six Shooter are two standouts on the menu.
  • MOJO Bar-B-Que. With eight locations across Florida, MOJO Bar-B-Que guarantees you’re never far from great BBQ! Come for the barbecue, but stay for the sides: the mac-n-cheese, fried green tomatoes, and sweet potatoes are all out of this world!
  • Shiver’s BBQ. Shiver’s is a local landmark in Homestead serving up fall-off-the-bone ribs with Southern style for over 50 years. If you’re in South Florida, give this delicious eatery a try.
  • Georgia Pig BBQ & Restaurant, Fort Lauderdale. This roadside joint in Fort Lauderdale has been around forever and has had plenty of time to perfect their craft. An unexpected bonus: this BBQ joint in Florida also has an amazing pancake breakfast!
