Love this place! Whether your eating in the restaurant or ordered catering it's always the same quality and delicious! Love that they make their own sauce and the mac n cheese is amazing! The pulled pork and chicken yum!

Other great looking sides as well. Good choice of tap and bottle beers. Attentive and friendly staff that shows genuine interest in the product and... More

Be prepared to stand in line, but it's worth the wait. I had brisket tacos and my wife had pulled pork. We felt the best sides are the baked beans and the corn bread. This was the best BBQ I have had in a long time. The corn bread was simply amazing. You order at a counter and then sit... More

Delicious barbeque! This is great food and very reasonably priced. It's only been open for a relatively short period of time so get there now before the crowds descend!

So riddle me this: if a rib joint has no ribs, is it still a rib joint? I think the answer is no. Friday night, not late. No ribs. No apologies, just a shrug. No sign on the door. I will never return here, there's other rib joints in Sarasota. They will get my coin and Nancy's will not.

A very laid back setting in the Burns Court area on the south side of downtown. Order at the front counter and pick from a wide variety of brisket, ribs, chicken, pork and other typical BBQ favorites, with a wide variety of sides and some daily specials. I had a pork daily special with baked beans, cole slaw and baked... More

Voted Sarasota's "Best BBQ" 2012 and 2013 by the readers of SARASOTA Magazine. We're a locally owned, family friendly, fast casual bar-b-q joint. Community seating inside, picnic tables on our screened porch and outside in our garden area. Good selection of American beers, including artisan breweries, plus wine. Children's menu. Serving award-winning Pulled Pork, Texas style Brisket, St. Louis Ribs, Smoked Chicken, pastrami-rub smoked and chilled salmon, and 13 sides -- most vegetarian and many vegan. Oh ... and don't forget our entree size salads: both our BIG salad and our Southern Ceasar Salad!
