Fodor's Review

Piggin' out since the 1960s, Shiver's ranks as a lip-smackin' must for lovers of hickory-smoked barbecued pork, beef and chicken in assorted forms from baby backs to briskets. Longtime owners Martha and Perry Curtis are typically on hand attending to traditions with original recipes, although Martha does offer her new, alternative "secret recipe" sauce. Be forewarned as you settle in at picnic-style tables, Shiver's is no place to cut calories. BBQ cheese fries, BBQ potato skins, fried mac'n'cheese, fried mushrooms, and fried okra are for starters. You then can choose among platters, sandwiches, and sides, including the rib and chicken combo or BBQ short ribs and collard greens. The corn-bread souffle draws raves, and there's also the hickory burger, Shiver burger, and what's known as the sausage bomb. For kids, fingers and bites await. A half dozen desserts include fried cheesecake. For feasting in the Everglades, you also can order take-out in bulk by the pound.
