First time here. Been on my places to try list for about 2 years but don’t really come to this side of town much. Anyways, you order at the counter and they serve you there. Then it’s self serve for your sides and then check out. I got the beed brisket dinner. The beef brisket is the best I have ever had and I’m a huge barbecue person. It’s extremely tender and juicy and tasty even without any barbecue sauce on it. A++++++. Friendly service. My two sides were green beans and collared greens and it needed salt and a mixture of barbecue sauce on top to make it tasty. Banana pudding was ok, nothing to write home about. Will definitely be back for the brisket! Wow.
Sometimes I am convinced that not everyone knows what good food is. This was one of those times. Visited Cecil’s for the first time yesterday after a recommendation. Had brisket, hotlink, collards and mac. Hubby had ribs, brisket, sweet potato casserole and beans. All in all, we ate the ribs (moist and tender), and some of the brisket and link. The toast was the highlight. The rest, ugh. I enjoyed the sauces - hot, sweet, and mild, and slathered the brisket in sauce, which made it less dry and edible. I don’t know y’all. All I can say is this is not good barbecue so lower any expectations you have. Customer service was on point and the prices are affordable.
Cecil's is so confident about how good their BBQ is, they give you as much sauce as you want! I am about the sauce and you should definitely use it, but not needed. The regular rib plate does not skimp on the meat. Their sides are classic and you even get a free soft serve cone at the end. They have the classic Texas size cups with the best ice. I had a tall glass of water and loved it. Do not miss dining in and provides plenty of options that are accessible to all body types.
Cecil's is a barbecue restaurant about 15 minutes from the airport. They have a bunch of parking spots here right off the street and it's easy to get to. Inside they have about 2 dozen tables. When you walk in, you order the meat and then it's self serve for sides. The menu is a good size, and it's best to get 3 meats since it's only a dollar more. Prices are good for the portion sizes. The pulled pork is the best, closely followed by the Brisket. The ribs were sub par unfortunately, not as tender or flavorful as I expected. The sauces are a self self bar too, so make sure to get some. Overall a solid spit, especially with the extremely friendly staff.
Two of us ordered at RockPit brewing the grilled cheese (ordered jalapeños jack) with pulled pork sandwich and the pulled pork sundae. One word describes both….AWESOME! For me it has been the best meal I have eaten this week while visiting Florida. Leaving for home tomorrow and stopping back before our flight. Will let you know if it’s equally as good on our 2nd visit. Will include pics. Ordered the same grilled cheese and pulled pork sandwich added potato salad. The potato salad was creamy, dill with big pieces of potato-very good. The grilled cheese was equally as good as when I had it last week. Also ordered the three rib plate with slaw and beans. The beans are super, smoky good, not over cooked. Cole slaw is creamy, sweet and tangy-very good. The ribs were great smoky, fall off the bone, done right. BBQ sauce was balance of sweet and smoky. The prices are right and the food is very good. We highly recommend Cecil’s. NUM!
