Fodor's Review

This old-fashioned roadside eatery along Tamiami Trail near Krome Avenue was launched in 1965 by the late Tommy Little, who wanted to provide easy access to cold drinks and rib-sticking fare for folks heading into or out of the Everglades. Now spiffed up, this backwoods heritage vision remains a popular, affordable family option. Chow down inside or outdoors under chickees. Specialties include barbecued chicken and ribs with a tangy secret basting sauce, fries, coleslaw, and biscuits, plus burgers, fish sandwiches, and wings of fire. The whopping double-decker beef or pork sandwich with slaw requires multiple napkins. Latin specialties include deep-fried pork and fried green plantains. Beer is by the bottle or pitcher. Locals flock here with kids on weekends for pony rides.
