this is a place that you have to know how to get to. I mean...it's on a small two lane road in a building that looks so bad that it should be torn down. but that is again a part of the charm. it's not pretentious, it's a straight forward no-frills-let-the-food-speak-for-itself type of place. they don't use silly decorations or loud music to pull you in. their beef is the BEST YOU WILL EVER...EVER HAVE!!! Their pork sandwiches and ribs are very good as well! they make their own potato salad, cole slaw, and baked beans. the only food they do not make is the bread..(hey...it's merita old fashioned white bread...so why mess with perfection there, eh?) now...the place itself has no a/c, and the bathrooms are outside...there again..a part of the charm! and the pits are wood fired....they chop their own wood from what it looks like...you will see the wood stacked up outside. I may be wrong about that...but I know i'm right about everything else! brave statement you say? come check for yourself then! off of Old Dixie Highway right here in auburndale!

Pros: love everything about it

Cons: it's not open more throughout the year!!!

You won't find better BBQ anywhere, and I have sought out BBQ all over this country from East to West. The place looks like it should be torn down, there's no AC, it's crowded, and the bathrooms are outside, but that's part of the character of the place. The food will far surpass anything you have ever had anywhere. It's out of the way, and for a place so popular, it seems like everyone I talk to about it thinks it's their own little secret...

Pros: THE FOOD! 25 foot open pit is a sight in itself, the staff is just awesome...

Cons: Only open 3 days a week, 4 months out of the year. Bring cash; no credit cards accepted

I like this barbque. It is one of the few that I do like. It is worth the drive from Lakeland to get some good food. The prices are about right and the service is great. The appearance is deceiving, the food is good, so don't go by looks.

Peebles is a well known establishment in Auburndale off Old Dixie Highway. It's a converted chicken shack so the place looks rustic, I mean really rustic! But that's part of its charm.

The ribs are excellent, some of the best I've ever eaten. The rib plate usually has potato salad, beans, ribs and some bread. Enough to fill you up!

Keep in mind there is no air conditioning so in the warmer months, choose take out and eat at home.

Highly recommended

PROS: Great barbecue
CONS: If you want upscale eatin, this aint it. Good luck finding parking.

I was reared in Winter Haven and have been eating Peebles for almost 50 years. We live in Atlanta now and drive from Atlanta to Brooksville, FL, every three months for a retreat. Our trips ALWAYS include a detour to Auburndale to feast on Peebles Barbecue. We've check out barbecue all over the world and have found NONE BETTER than Peebles.

Have to know where is as off the beaten path. True open pit as you walk in, it is right there before you as you watch them BBQ. Ambience - Rustic quaint. Dirt parking lot, white wood frame building, no glass windows - just screening with wooden awnings held open by boards then removed and awnings secured when resteraunt closed. Food is great BBQ. Worth asking locals direction to where it is.

We may enjoy 5 star restaurants and resorts, but when it comes to the best BBQ EVER, we drive from Orlando to get this BBQ!

Pros: Great food, Great food, Good Value

Cons: not open long enough, no celeb sitings

Best BBQ in and around central Florida, only open in late fall and early spring. Not the best location or facilities but food makes up for it!
