The best bar none. Much better than sonny's down the street in florida city. 6 of us ate there in may. All of us loved it. Loved it. Loved it. My wife and I split the full rack of baby backs. It was plenty for both of us. I can not say enough about the place. I do not want to ramble on. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

Worth the drive to Homestead for the best fall off the bone ribs in South Florida. The kids love the fried mac and cheese fritters, but all of their sides are great.

Had the pulled pork and baby back ribs with fried okra and collard greens. Everything was delicious . Super nice waitress. Get there early to avoid a wait.

Hands down, you want a smoked BBQ flavor that keeps you coming back for more. This is it! With or without BBQ sauce, baby back ribs, pull porked sandwich and Brisket is my favorite. Don't forget the green beans and sweet corn souffle. Only downfall I encounter is not wheechair friendly using picnic tables. If wheelchair bound, get it to go.

I have eaten lots of barbecue all over, from Memphis to St Louis to texas. and Miami is definitely barbecue challenged. but I have to say, that after eating at Shivers, I have to retract. because eating their pork spare ribs was a spiritual experience. They were perfect in every way. Smoke, taste, tenderness were all perfect. I ate more than I should have. However, stick to the ribs, because the beef brisket was dry and tough. And the pulled pork was a little dry and a little chewy as well. but not as bad as the brisket. But if you order the pork spare ribs, you will be happy all over. The cole slaw was pretty good too.
