Amazing BBQ!

While on vacation, I tried Shiver's BBQ. I didn't expect much since South Florida isn't known for BBQ, but what I found was BBQ that could compete with the BBQ back home in SC. The sausage sampler was amazing! The jalapeño cheddar was the best of the sausages. Between the three of us, we had briscit, pulled pork, and ribs. All three were tender, juicy, and full of flavor. They have multiple sauces to try, but we all agreed that the peppered sauce & the sweet were the best. As for dessert, we shared a banana pudding, which was delicious, and a key lime pie, which I have never cared too much for, but their version was very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good southern BBQ.

Major Disappointment!!!!

Had a chopped pork sandwich an it tasted like it was heated in warm dish water.

Beans were just as lame tasted straight ot of a can.

Cole slaw know doubt was at least a day old.

If this is South Floridas place to go for ""Q"" drive further south or head north as fast as you can go!

This place rates ZERO Stars



Great Landmark

South Florida has rapidly changed over the last several years. It is great to get to enjoy a meal at an establishment that has stood the test of time...and several hurricanes.

You can't go wrong with any of the well prepared meats or sides. Everyone will find a favorite. The waitresses are as sweet as any you will ever find and will accomodate any group. Kids will love the decor and the good selection the kid's menu provides.

You will get a ton of food for your dollar and walk away having experienced a true southern BBQ restraunt.

You can get the best BBQ in all of South Fla. and they have great sides and desserts...

The whole family will enjoy the food. Fried Corn on the Cobb is very tasty as well as the fried mushrooms and Key Lime Pie... They have Beef, Pork, Chicken, and Fish... It is all fresh BBQ and NOT FAST FOOD... WELL WORTH THE STOP FOR LUNCH OR DINNER... I have been going to Shivers BBQ since the 1950's [my mother took me] The owners have changed but, the food is just as GOOD... JT

Best BBQ in South FL

We have been going to Shivers since our children were little, and now we have also taken our granddaughter to Shivers. Shiver's not only has the best BBQ St. Louis ribs, collard greens fried corn and fried okra, but the owners and staff treat us like family. The rustic ambiance is like no other. A visit to Shivers is like going back in time and is a real ""feel good"" experience.

The Best Baby Back Ribs Ever!!!

I'm a Baby Back Ribs lover, therefore, I order ribs from every restaurant that serves them. These are the best!!! Perfectly smoked and the taste stays in the mouth even after a while. Also, their BBQ Beans are flavorful as well as their french fries that are crispy, crispy, crispy. For now, ""THIS IS THE PLACE FOR RIBS"".
