St. Augustine's restaurants include a host of barbecue options to please every palate.


Barbecue (or barbeque or BBQ — however you choose to spell it) is a staple food in Florida culture, and especially so in St. Augustine. The restaurants listed below range from authentic home-grown barbecue shops to many of the successful barbecue chains like Sonny's, Woody's, and Bono's. The taste of American barbecue comes from the wood used and the livestock available to cook. St. Augustine's barbecue eateries offer both sweet and savory tastes, with meats cooked and smoked in a wood-fire stove, and all the delicious sides you expect to make a great barbecue meal.
