Owners: Dale Strickland and Marsha Peebles Strickland
About the Business: Peebles Bar-B-Q has been a family-owned and operated barbecue restaurant since 1947. The 70+ year landmark was started by Ellie and Gladys Peebles, who passed their business down to their kids. You can expect large portions of flavorful barbecue when you dine here, as well as an Old Florida ambiance with a screened-in eating area and indoor picnic tables. They’ve perfected menu favorites such as ribs, chopped chicken sandwiches, pork sandwiches, and sliced beef, while traditional sides include baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad, and mac & cheese.
Why We Love It: You can satisfy your appetite with the 70 Year Special, which includes a sampler platter with ribs, pork, beef, chicken, and sausage. If you’re still hungry, order takeout by the pound.
