The waitress we had was great. The only negative thing I can say is it was very cold inside. The food was good

I've lived in the greater Miami area for 30+ years. I've had barbecue and had been to a couple of barbecue places. I've even been to Texas and had barbecue over there. And then I came to Shiver's. Wow. If I'd have known before Shiver's existed, I probably would have saved myself a trip to Texas. Amazing doesn't even begin... More

Shriver’s BBQ has been open since 1950. For a BBQ place to be open this long it must be good.We stopped in after a great Sunday in the Everglades. The long building located right on S. Dixie Highway isn’t much to look. The parking lot was so full cars parked in the back. The benches “out front” were full of... More

Love BBQ places and this place does it well. Got brisket and pulled pork combo which was delicious. My girlfriend got the hickory chicken platter which she loved. The coleslaw and jalapeno cheese grits I got were ok. Her cheesy hashbrown souffle and cornbread souffle sides were great. Friendly, fast service. Enjoyable experience all around.

We had a really nice diner in this restaurant : the meat was perfectly cooked (I ordered the spare ribs which were tasty) and the sides great too. Service is very friendly and it's not expensive. I definitively recommend this adress.

Miami Icon! Home style cooking. Tasty ribs with jalapeños grits. Delish! Tried Cheerwine for the first time. (It's soda pop). Great family fun!

There's already nearly 600 reviews of this place, and it's been around forever, so I'll just offer my two-cents. The food? Average. While the ribs were tender and came right off the bone, they were served to me stone cold. I mean cold. It's the second time this has happened. I returned only to give it a second chance and...

Thank you for your honest review. I am so sorry that your food was cold...TWICE! There is simply no excuse for that and I do apologize. As far as the food is concerned, we believe that we have a wonderful BBQ product. We are a simple mom and pop operation competing in a corporate world. We really hope that people... More

The baby back ribs were very good a little on thr dry side, the French fries could have been cooked more, kinda soggy. We will try it again sometime.

Couple having dinner on a Tuesday evening. We shared burnt brisket ends, baby back ribs, an Andouille sausage, coleslaw, green beans and mashed potatoes. Everything was very good; we had no complaints about the food and would return if we are ever in the area again. Our only complaint (a small one) is that the service could have been a... More

If you are looking for romantic and quiet atmosphere, do not eat here. If you want great barbecue in a casual setting - picnic tables, loud noise, etc, then this is the place. They have a selection of grilled meats, including ribs, brisket, chicken, pulled pork, etc. and some good side dishes which many barbecue places are missing. Get there... More
