People's taste in BBQ vary and Benny's was definitely to my liking. Award winning BBQ, local family owned (not a chain) with really good smoked meats and plenty of vegetable choices. Seating was limited to about 25 which made it difficult sometimes getting in during the 12-1 lunch rush.

I'm usually pretty tough on BBQ joints but this one's alright. The pork was really tender and I love their sauce- just the right amount of sweet & spice. Though their hot BBQ sauce isn't really that hot. The portions I thought were a little smaller than other places but still enough to fill youu up. They have a great... More

Cold Creek seems like your neighborhood sit-down restaurant, but it is actually a poor excuse for food and service. Not only is the portions small compared to the price, but the service is always terrible! We went on our lunch break and they were super slow. However, the waitress seemed to ignore us and constantly apologize about her 'lack of... More

I've been numerous times since moving from Benny's barbeque, Cold creek barbeque had a transition period when service slowed but now picked back up. Service is now quick and friendly and food is great. Smoked is the best barbeque and sauces are great. Will remain the only place I go for barbeque in Niceville, or close to Niceville. Sides are...

Tried this for lunch after it moved to a new location. The BBQ is pretty decent and since we tried this right after the move the service seemed to be very slow, but overall the experience was decent. It was not the best BBQ I've tried, but it was quite good. The menu wasn't overly large, but it has the... More

Great BBQ, we've had Benny's/Cold Creek BBQ several times, always great. Well smoked, several good sauces, killer sides (CORN NUGGETS!) and decent portions for the price. Even the toast is great! Dang, now I'm hungry again!

The sign outside says it is formerly Benny's but is now called Cold Creek Bar-B-Que. It is also just down the street from where it used to be. The new location is a huge upgrade. There is lots of room to sit. Half the seating is in a screened room/sun room. The place used to be a garden shop so... More

Benny's used to have GREAT bbq and "to die for" lima beans! I admit, I haven't made it over there recently so I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt from before:-)

Very tasty barbecue. Food came out quickly. Great amount of portion for the price. The staff was extremely friendly and willing to go out of their way to make sure your meal was good. I had the shredded beef sandwich and fries. Next time, I hope to try the ribs and perhaps some peach cobbler.

Would be 5 out of 5, but place is too small for big time. Just west of a defunct Food World in a stripmall (as of 4-14) this small storefront place with maybe 6 tables in and a picnic table out, was great. Special was a $10 pork sandwich + 2 sides + drink. Green beans were fresh, the fries... More
