I've heard the whispering of this hidden gem for a few years now of mouth watering BBQ that could be found at Slims in Arcadia. I had a sliced pork sandwich on Texas garlic toast with coleslaw, steak fries and some of the most phenomenal spicey BBQ sauce I've had to date. I've been hangry for a great BBQ place... More

A small local place with pretty good BBQ. Service is real good, friendly and helpful. The food was pretty good overall, two had BBQ chicken, one was good, other was dry. Ribs were good, beef was rare and well flavored. BBQ beans and Cole slaw fine, garlic bread pretty normal. Overall a pleasant lunch, would try again

We've been to this place twice and have had great food and service. It's a drive for us since we live in the Sarasota area but it's worth it. The food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. Don't miss the Florida orange cheesecake!

Fast friendly service with a GREAT house sauce! Beans baked from scratch are the best side dish on the menu.

There were a few reasons why I gave 3/5, otherwise it was perfect. We came for lunch right at opening and had people already waiting to go inside. The outside and inside is clean and nice looking. The inside has a country type of feel, loved the picnic tables and wood beams on the ceiling. The waitress was friendly and... More

After a fun airboat tour, my son and I needed some lunch. Thanks to other Trip Advisor reviews we had decided on Slim's. When we pulled into the parking lot I knew this was going to be good since the place was full. When we entered the restaurant there was a wait for a table, but we were seated after... More

The food and service were excellent. BBQ sauce tastes homemade. Our server was THE best. Restaurant was clean and neat. Great for families and travelers looking for a great meal on the road. Can't wait to visit again when we are passing through.

On a trip returning from the Atlantic coast, we stopped in Arcadia, a large town dedicated to those in the area that are farmers, cattle ranchers, citrus growers and all that are invested in the area! Of course, we consulted with the TA app and found this place. It is a goldmine for one to get to know the culture... More

Very friendly staff. Shrimp was very good, but ribs were a disappointment. Not a bad place to eat if you are in Arcadia.
