    Go here quite often during my break between class and the service is great. Either of the sandwiches are well priced and absolutely delicious.

    Some of the best BBQ in all of Miami. I've yet to order anything that I did not love.

    Unpretentious place. Prefer the beef brisket to the pulled pork. Decent BBQ chicken too. Worth a try if nearby, however not a destination.

    Guys, believe me!!! That was the best BBQ experience in the whole Miami area!!!! Have a good pint of Raspberry lager and have a pulled pork plate! I would definitely comeback for ribs!!!

    This is downtown Miami, so parking could be an issue. This is a nice spot to gather with friends downtown before heading to the arena or some other event.

    The Tyler pressed sandwich is correct! Pulled pork AND sliced brisket w/cheddar and pressed? Only a side of crispy spiced fries could make it better! Great service and beer selection too. Hidden gem!

    Great pulled pork, but the house beans are the real star of the show. Great value food but pricey for drinks.

    It was OK, not great. I really wanted to like it but ended up disappointed. Tried the wings...not special. Tried the brisket... Unimpressive. Pulled pork was the only highlight.

    The brisket sandwich is already legendary: a freshly grilled bun piled with juicy slices of prime beef imbued with smoky glory and spice-rubbed flavor. Read more

    The beef brisket is legit. I also love the fried pickles, greens and baked beans. Also, if you like spicy ask for their magma and lava sauces.

    The best BBQ in Downtown/Brickell, possibly in all Miami. The homemade sauces are standouts, and sides are outrageously delicious as well.

    BBQ authentic enough to satisfy traditionalists and innovative enough to keep you coming back to find new favorites on their menu; Sparky's is cheffy without being pretentious and a Miami treasure.

    Great burger. Order it with cheese only as to not interrupt the flavor. Add a little of any of their homemade sauces for punch. The secret's in the bun.

    The Pulled Pork Samich With Guava Habanero Sauce Is For Sure. Seasoned Waffle Fries Were Fiyah Too. Wash Down With Homemade Lemonade, Iced Tea Or Choose One Of A Variety Of Microbrews.

    The pulled pork sandwich is one of the best in South Florida. Tried the corn bread is sweet style but ok. The prices are good and the service is great.

    The BBQ here's done "low & slow" in a St. Louis-style rotisserie smoker using hickory & applewood, cranking out deliciousness like babyback pork ribs massaged w/ a 22-spice rub & cooked for 2 1/2hrs. Read more
