Sir Woody's BBQ in Homestead

I've been waiting for this piece to be published, and I apologize for the tardiness of this post, but after eating bbq (and oysters, shrimp, crab, etc.) up and down Mississippi and in Memphis for the last two weeks, I wanted to alert anyone heading to Homestead, or just bbq lovers in general, to Sir Woody's Barbecue, located on Southwest 344th Street (Palm Drive) near Krome Avenue. Open Friday and Saturday. Cash only. If he has a pork loin in his custom-made rig, buy the whole thing and count your blessings. Smoky and moist, ribs, chicken, and homemade sauce. If you can't go today, file this for next week-buy some produce if you like, and reward yourself with Sir Woody's meats. The actual paper has a great photo of Sir Woody (he deserves the honorific, you will see), but the online story is here...

  1. TY Great Story!

    Will definitely make a stop down the road there and report back.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation!! Just got back from there and brought home a rack of ribs!!! So so good, was fun to meet "Sir Woody", he was a lot of fun. His smoker was filled with chicken, venison, pork roast and of course ribs. So delicious and loved his bbq sauce. While you are down that way just half a block east of Sir Woody is a great mexican store where you buy fresh tamales, never had a bad one yet from them, as well as sometimes hard to find mexican cooking ingredients. So grabs some ribs then head over to Moreno's for some tamales, you will have some good eatin for sure!!!

        You're welcome. I just love the guy. Venison? Arghhhh! I can't wait to make the trip again. And thanks for the tip-having just gorged myself on delicious Memphis and deep south-style 'hot tamales' on a recent road trip, I miss a good Mexican-made tamale. Do you know if they have any frozen or, dare I say, fresh Huitlacoche at the grocery store? I need a new source.
        Venison? Arghhhh!

        1. re: Miami Danny

          Seriously doubt Moreno's would carry such a rare product. Just the good ole basics for mexican cooking. Saw that they sell it at .We mainly just buy their great tamales, chorizo and some spices. Found about them from El Toro Taco mexican restaurant in Homestead when one Sunday when we drove down for our Sunday morning tamales and they did not have any and told us to go to Moreno's since that is where they buy theirs for the restaurant. So we cut out the middle man and go straight to the source!! Now we will add Sir Woody to that road trip.

          1. re: cdesoto

            I was taking a long shot with the huitlacoche, because I know it is 'grown' here, and both the fresh and frozen varieties end up in top restaurants, but it would be pretty unlikely to turn up at any market. The canned stuff is nasty. In other words, pretty damn good! I GOT to try those tamales...

          I couldn't find Moreno's. Do you mean Rosita's Cafe? There is nothing east of Krome and Palm except a gas station and a Starbucks, so I assume you meant west.

          1. re: keysrat

            It is called Moreno Mexican Tortilla Shop located at 439 W Palm Drive, Florida City, FL. Directly across the street from Florida City, City Hall. One block east of where Sir Woody is in the grass field. It is not a restaurant, it is a small store. Hope this helps. There is a web site for Moreno's it is

            1. re: cdesoto

              I found it, thanks.
              The tamales are quite good and came with a side of excellent green salsa. Yum.
              I'll be picking up a dozen next time i pass by.

        3. WOW. Just had Sir Woody's tender, smokey ribs on 3/20 en route to RF Orchids and Robert is Here produce stand/tropical milkshake haven. Amazing day and perfect look at the best of Homestead.
