We had a late lunch there and got filled up on pulled bbq, okra, fried apples, a drink and fried pie. Excellent bbq sandwich ! We loved the unique, rustic setting as well. The chef was very hospitable and friendly! We will return

Stopped here on a whim with my son as we were heading home to Illinois. Did not read any of the excellent reviews until after we ate. Atmosphere was perfect, the food was excellent, and the staff typical southern hospitality. Highly recommended!

We have eaten at most all of the BBQ restaurants in the area, and this was the least appetizing. We have spoken to others about it, thinking it was just us, but they agreed with us. Each time we have passed by there, rarely are there more than one or two cars in the small parking lot. The old saying... More

the food is good and no frills. If you want lemon for your iced tea, bring your own or it will be a liquid type. The BBQ is some of the best I've ever had!!!

We live locally and Deep South is one of our favorite places to go. The pulled pork is excellent. But I would have to say there sides are what we enjoy the most. Baked Beans, Fried Okra, Fried green tomatoes.

My first time there and been living 3 miles away for 28 years. Best Bar B. Q chicken I've ever had and the fried green tomatoes were awesome. My friend had the Brisket and it was tender and very flavorful. I will be going back soon. The best Bar-B-Q in Brooksville and the owner was very friendly and sociable.

Driving home from Spring Hill Florida we stopped at The Deep South Family BBQ. They had a sign advertising fried green tomatoes. My daughter hadn't had them so we stopped. I ordered the Godzilla pork chop sandwich. It was bigger around than my head! My daughter got the fried green tomatoes and pulled pork and my son- in- law got... More

I love the Q and try to eat as many varieties as I can. I was not disappointed here. Just rolled up my sleeves and dug in. I liked the hot sauce and the puller pork great.
