Jodi and I had driven by Burkes BBQ a couple of times while on our way to other places. We were trying to find someplace new the other day and Jodi remembered that we had gone by this place, so we decided to go try it.
What we found was a little bit of awesomeness in meat form. It’s fantastic!!!
The prices are great as well. The serve everything in a cafeteria style. The first time we went we both tried to normal bbq things, i.e. pulled pork and chicken. The second time their special was meatloaf, so we both had that.
The staff, atmosphere, prices and food are all great. I wish I could come up with a better word to describe it adequately. It is truly family owned and operated and you can tell. From what we can tell they have hit all of the bases when it comes to operating a family restaurant.
One our first visit we ended up talking to the owner about Indiana Tenderloins. He happened to know what we were talking about and went back to the kitchen to make a sample for us while we were talking. If you’re ever in the area and want to try it, here’s the address:
Burke’s BBQ 311 Hwy 466A, Fruitland Park, FL 34731
Here’s their website: www.burkespitbbq.com
I hope you’ll give it a try if you’re in the area. We like to support small businesses whenever we can.
