Description

Miami New Times' Description

Hunks of meat wood-smoked slowly at low temperatures, so the fatty juiciness doesn't cook out, with enough natural smoky flavor cooked in that sauces are an enjoyable extra rather than a necessity: that's real barbecue. And that's hard to find in Miami, though our town is geographically about as Deep South as you can get. Though it seems especially unlikely that you'd find honest 'cue in South Beach, this joint has it. The brisket ($13) would be a contender even in Texas (where barbecue means beef), its flavorfully fatty succulence sinful enough to convert even hard-core pork fans. As for the latter, pulled pork won't have North Carolinians ready to surrender the crown, but it'll satisfy their homesick blues. Elephantine spare ribs, available either wet (sauce-basted) or dry-rubbed, are not the falling-off-the-bone kind — which are generally par-boiled flavorless to reach that state — but are boldly meaty specimens that are tender yet chewy enough to be interesting. Even the whole barbecue chickens are beautifully moist — and bargain-priced ($8.95). All platters come with two sides; choose creamy slaw and nut-studded sweet potato/banana mash, and throw in an à la carte order of deep-fried dill pickles, for a down-home meal that'll thrill all but your cardiologist.

Tips from foursquare

  • Miami New Times on 03/03/11

    Bar-B-Que Beach is a deceivingly large sports bar and barbecue restaurant that looks as if it should be on the beach's edge; the only thing really missing from its seaside theme is actual sand.

  • Sony Mobile WTA on 02/23/11

    This barbecue has everything! An outdoor atmosphere, plenty of meat, from chicken to beef, sides and six different barbecue sauces!

  • Bjorn H. on 05/09/11

    They didn't honor the special they have promoted on Foursquare!!

  • Mikey R. on 01/01/11

    Skip it. Not very good.

  • Arah C. on 07/31/11

    The sweet potato banana mash is a MUST have side!
