Map & Details>>

The walls at Art's BBQ in Coral Springs are covered with posters of blues artists like B.B. King, Robert Johnson, and John Lee Hooker. You gotta figure even legends like them are happy to have a place at Art's, a suburban smokehouse with deep reverence to tradition. The emphasis is on Southern barbecue — slowly smoked ribs, pork, and chicken smothered in a sweet and spicy homemade sauce. Texas-inspired hot links and slow-cooked chicken wings appear alongside pulled pork sandwiches with lots of bark and mac and cheese done creamy and rich. But the ribs are the real star here. Tender and smoky with a toothy bite, these St. Louis-cut bad boys are served over two pieces of plain white bread — a telltale sign of great 'cue, whether in Florida or the Gateway City.

I completely agree - that's why I'm so sad that it recently closed. I'm guessing they just didn't get enough business. If they moved to another location, I would be there in a heartbeat.

too bad it seems as if art's has gone out of business or hopefully just moved. The location where they were is now empty.


By far, the finest BBQ I have ever had. My whole family adores Art's, and there is simply nothing more succulent, more savory, and more juicy than the ribs, chicken and pulled pork. Simply dazzling.
