When anyone asks me where to go for lunch or dinner I always tell them 98. This is a great joint...food is always fast, hot, and delicious. The pulled chicken and pulled porks are wonderful! Also the fries and onion rings are fantastic!! They are always playing a great variety of music and have some old school arcade games in... More

Dropped in for a quick lunch with family and we were blown away. I'm a ketchup-enthusiast but the French fries were so well-seasoned they were more delicious plain! We had the pulled pork and pulled chicken BBQ sandwiches; the plates were so big that we were ecstatic to take home leftovers! Original BBQ sauce is delicious and the spicy BBQ... More

Very nice menu with lots of BBQ options to course from. My husband got the platter with ribs and chicken and 2 sides. He said it was all very good. I had the beef brisket nachos...half portion. Thank goodness, because all the portions are generous. We spent $50 for dinner, 2 beers, iced tea and dessert. Not too bad. And... More

I'm a local. Love this place. Although it is a bbq place, there are other options to choose from. From salads to different sandwiches. My favorite go to is the southwestern chicken sandwich( crispy flavorful bacon, Swiss cheese, grilled jalapeños). The corn nuggets are a must try! Service is always friendly and welcoming. Locals love this place!

We dropped in to this little gem on the way out of Sandestin headed back to Tennessee. The food was absolutely outstanding! We've got good bbq in TN but this was so much better than most that I have had. We will be back.

Great service. I had quarter chicken, excellent. Moved to SRB 5 months back, happy to find a cool place, tucked away, for good food and TV's for entertainment. Recommend for locals and visitors!

The portions were huge. It made for a good full serving lunch the next day. The pulled pork was melt in your mouth, the brisket was tender and delicious. The potato salad was also a great compliment on the side. We would go back when we visit the area again.

Food was good but not great. Corn fritters were great. We liked the BBQ sauce but BBQ was just ok. A bit pricey for the mediocre BBQ. Probably won't be back.

HONEST TO GOODNESS HOMEMADE FRENCH FRIED POTATOES are my favorite. Pulled port sandwich is outstanding. Everything is excellent. Not cheap, but good value.

Our table had a person from Kansas, one from North Carolina and 2 from Tennessee - and we all agreed that 98 BBQ is fantastic. The portions are huge- the service was great-can't say enough good things! (Btw - the rib tips are heavenly)
