Miami New Times' Description

Pride and Joy was one of the most highly anticipated restaurant openings in Wynwood in 2012. The barbecue eatery is a partnership among Myron Mixon and five South Florida locals -- Mike Saladino, Chris Mayer, Paul Thielecke, Jose Santa, and Pablo Cardenas. Mixon, who is known as the "the winningest man of barbecue," is a three-time barbecue world champion, judge on TLC's BBQ Pitmasters, and best-selling cookbook author of Smokin' With Myron Mixon. It's the chef's first large-scale restaurant concept -- complete with a draft house, honky-tonk, and beer patio. But despite Mixon's reputation as one of the most loudmouthed, experienced barbecue chefs in the nation, the project has faced many challenges since opening in early November. So far, the cuisine has been inconsistent. On one occasion, the brisket was dry, tough, and difficult to swallow. Seasoned with Mixon's signature 30-ingredient dry rub, the baby-back ribs were excessively charred. Paired with a smooth, sweet peach butter, the cornbread was slightly stale. On another visit, though, the food easily ranked among the best barbecue in the city. In short, the greatest challenge here is consistency.

    I love this place! If you have ever had real southern BBQ, you know that this place is the real deal. The burnt ends, pulled pork, and ribs are amazing. I also recently tried the Philly Cheese steak (which is not as traditional) and it blew my mind.

    The service is at times a bit slow, but they're so nice that it (sometimes) makes up for it. I also have never had a problem with... More >>

    Pride 'n Joy in my view does not live up to its name or purported reputation as a serious foodies BBQ establishment. Rather, after many visits, its been a huge disappointment. The manager is poorly trained and seems to be ill-equipped to properly handle negative comments to his face...about the food. We walked out after eating $100.00 of food for two. Each only had one beer and... More >>

    Major disappointment. Not only is the food expensive ($30 a person on average), but it is laden with sodium and inconsistently prepared at best. The large a la carte menu is filled with hidden duds. Management must be sick of its own inability to pull off such a daunting task as to serve what's on the menu (one time I arrived and they were out of BBQ sauce, imagine that!) that... More >>

    Best of Miami 2013- Best Cobbler: Pride & Joy. Just like fresh at Grandmas and topped with Blue Bell Ice Cream, you can't leave this BBQ without gobbling a cobbler.

    Great ribs and brew. Great location, best barbeque in Miami!

  • Pete on 01/22/13

    On a scale of 1 to barbecue I give it a 6. Definitely hit or miss and still no liquor license.
