Place was recommended by my son. Having traveled all over Texas wanted to see if this place was on point. Cecil’s did not disappoint. The pulled pork was flavorful and juicy. The brisket was also juicy and had a nice smoked flavor. The sausage was excellent. Dining in has an ambiance of being in Texas, not down town Orlando, Fl. Very friendly staff too. My husband and I will definitely return again and also recommend this place. Parking may be a bit challenging but we arrive just a few minutes after opening on a Sunday.
This was my first time there..they have a good selection of food items to select from...it like a buffet style setup but a one time go around. It would be nice if the food was fresh and hot. The food was cold to lightly warm. I went back and ask for fresh hot French fries. The staff was pleasant at least If I return I hope the food will be hotter. This place has been in Orlando Fl for a long time I think.
Delicious!! I was craving homestyle BBQ food and I swear every single thing was EXACTLY the flavor profile I was missing (is my Grandma employed in your kitchen??) This was supposed to be a lunch special sandwich w/2 sides but I just couldn't say no to everything clearly. The staff is friendly and funny and the place was clean with lots of seating.
This is the second time I've ordered from Cecil's (Doordash). This time I ordered the 3 Meats Dinner. For the sides, I got the Jalapeno Mashed Potatoes and the Hot Beans. Both were delicious. The 3 meats were the Hot Links, Brisket and Pulled Pork. All were good, but I noticed that the serving size had shrunk compared to my previous order. Yes, I know the economy is in bad shape at the moment, but I consider that for the price (almost $19.00), a bit more meats can be added. Next time, I might just drop in person and dine in to see if there's any difference. Still giving 4 stars for flavor, but I might look at other options in the future.
Went in to get take out after wanting to try this place for a long time. Fella was really nice at the counter and helpful. I order $60 worth of food (3 dinners). Half rack of ribs, brisket and two meat dinner. Drove home to eat, opened my ribs order and came home to this (see pic). Exactly how it looked when I lifted the lid open. It was dry bits, barely any whole pieces. (ZOOM to your hearts content). I could swear I got the bits/ribs from ends of other racks. Truly disappointed. Saw people in the dine in line get theirs and it looked good, which is why I ordered. The brisket was better, a teeny bit on the dry side but better than the ribs. The pulled pork and sausage would be another combo I would rethink. I wish I'd taken a pic because the portion size of the (meh- but not dry) pulled pork was quite small along with maybe 6 thin diagonal slices of something like polka kielbasa. The sides were pretty average I would say. My husband and I were really looking forward to trying this place out. Even though the take out was a let down, I'd be willing to try out this place again, but def dine in, before we determine if we continue on our search for good 'que. Always love supporting local mom n pop places before the chains. Hope it's better inside.
