Best BBQ Spots in Miami

Biscayne Shores Blog, Miami, FL  Read our post to learn where the best barbecue places in Miami are, and then visit them to celebrate National BBQ Month this May!

Welcome back to the Biscayne Shores Blog! We are celebrating National Barbecue Month this May by highlighting a few of the best barbecue joints here in Miami, FL. Read on to find out a little about each place including how far away they are for our apartment community.


Mr. Boneless (3.5 miles away)

Terry Watts started selling food on Miami street corners nearly two decades ago. After years of hosting cookouts for friends, pleas to turn his hobby into a business grew relentless. Hence, Mr. Boneless was born. And his regulars swear by his ribs ($12 platter/$8 sandwich) and chicken ($10 platter/$7 sandwich) — no bones, of course, and cooked slow over oak.

People’s Bar-B-Que (8.1 miles away)

Oak is the wood of choice for barbecuing at People's, the Overtown restaurant that's been serving barbecue and soul food specialties for four decades. The menu includes oxtails, pork chops, and ham shanks, but most diners come for the tender chicken and meaty ribs, both bathed in a mildly tangy barbecue sauce. Sides such as collard greens, baked beans, and black-eyed peas are pure, delightful Dixie fare. Generous portions leave little room for homemade pineapple-flecked bread pudding, or any of the numerous desserts that change daily.


Los Fuegos (7.8 miles away)

Born from a passion for the ancient art of South American live-fire cooking, Argentine grill master Francis Mallmann creates a contemporary asado experience with an open-fire kitchen, local ingredients and a gaucho’s touch to transform traditional rustic recipes into sophisticated, savory dishes. The restaurant is located in Miami Beach at the FAENA Hotel.


Sparky’s Roadside Barbecue (8.7 miles away)  

Sparky's is a down-home hangout serving up BBQ staples, hearty sides & craft beer. The owners use a blend of some two dozen seasonings for the rub, and a mixture of young hickory and apple woods shipped in from Maine for the grill. The pulled pork sandwich is equally fetching, featuring the same potent smoke and juice.
