Barbeque, or barbecue, 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.
