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.

We stopped by on a road trip and really enjoyed our visit. The place is decorated in rather southern signs and what not (don't say you're a liberal here!) but the food is low priced, and good. We had the fortune to run into the owner and have a long conversation, he was a friendly and colorful personality and really... More

We saw barbecue on a sign and saw a shack that didn't look like much but turned around and decided to give it a try. It turned out to be a really good decision. The barbecue is excellent and the owner is very friendly (even though he is a Gator). The shack is not air conditioned and is screened in... More

Excellent home cooked bbq. Good prices. Friendly staff. Although the building doesn't look like much, well worth the stop.

Found this gem thanks to Trip Advisor reviews and will go out of our way to go back. We had fried green tomatoes, baby back ribs and Mac n Cheese and loved it all. The owner was charming and we really experienced southern hospitality. Duck Dynasty without the beards in a BBQ shack with a screened in dining room. Yum!
