Anyone know of an open date for Old FL. Bar-B-Q? This is only web presence I could find: http://www.insidefortlauderdale.com/1060/Old-Florida-BarBQ-Davie

Anyone tried Myron Mixon's new Pride & Joy yet? http://www.prideandjoybbq.com/

    I haven't been yet....but I will get there sometime in the next week to 10 days......Read several reviews on the yelp site....and they weren't as positive as I thought they would be....or hoped they would be.....Most agreed that the decor was great....and the service fantastic.....The reviews of the food were mostly negative.....Prices are high and food a la carte....Big selection of beer....and fun atmosphere....But if meat is the thing...and it is at any BBQ joint....the review here were choppy.....and in Miami....any restaurant needs a solid opening......

    But I will judge for myself......and report back.....

      Strange website: has all the earmarkings of a chain, and obviously aspires to become one, but it appears to be one and only.

        If we're talking Pride & Joy.....They have other locations....but I don't think they're the size or scope of this establishment....They seem to be more like neighborhood joints.....But I've read several reviews and this place is hip, big and loud....But if meat is the thing....(and at the prices they're charging)....it had better be good.....Its new and inconsistent (by reading those reviews)......

        I've been to Brother Jimmy's and it sounds very similar to what they're trying to do......But the food at Brother Jimmy's (the three times I've been there) is right on the mark.....and the service has been too....

        Again....I'll hit this place...and see what's what....

          P&J's prices are too high. $4 for a small side and $7 for large. $26 full baby back rack but does it come with sides? Look at the extensive alcohol menu. While you're at it, get a bottle of bubbly to go with your Q from $85 to $550. Upscale clientele BBQ joint?

          I'm not feeling it......
