Menu says ribs are from the pit. No evidence that these ribs came near a pit, a grill, a broiler, or even a black iron skillet. They looked boiled, in fact. A gray color. Sauce is tasty but when it's poured over boiled meat, it...More

I've been eating at this restaurant since in college at UNA in the early 80's. Their bbq plate comes with generous helpings of beans, potato salad, and meat. They also include vegetable sticks with their plates. One plate can easily feed 2 people. This is...More

Good food. Limited seating. Usually can find a spot if not lunch time. They also have a drive through. Nice staff.

I am not a fan of BBQ, but this place has a great BBQ sandwich. I love their fries and fried vegetable sticks too.

The building is not much to look at and it is difficult to drive in and out but the food is great. Not just BBQ but the hamburgers are great. They also have some of the best fries around.

The quality of the food is excellent and although barbecue pork and chicken are the stars, they also offer a killer cheeseburger. Desserts too - especially cobblers.

Born & raised in Memphis, so I've had great barbecue all my life. Southern BBQ in Florence is the closest I've found to the bbq I love with good slaw & plenty of sauce. Friendly staff & fast service.

Another local bar-b-que place. There are other "Southern Bar-b-que" locations as this is small franchised chain with each one being individually owned. The food at each one is not the exact same quality. This review is only about the one on Cleveland Avenue in "North"...More
