Texas Hold 'Em BBQ - Closed

21 SW Seventh St. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-764-7427

Location Description:

What a difference a move makes. When owner Jeremy Armstead decided to close his longtime Sunrise store and truck his barbecue downtown, it was a bit of a gamble. He packed up his collection of sports and music memorabilia that had for so long been a part of the place - like his antique Jack Johnson fight bell and his Miles Davis album covers - and hung them instead on the red and white walls of his new Seventh Street location. Then he got to smoking. Now, downtown denizens pack the joint daily, tapping their feet to the sounds of Coltrane wailing away in the background as they nosh on chopped pork dinners and Texas nachos smothered in melted cheese and pickled jalapenos. The spare ribs are meaty and tender, and the sauce is among the best around. And the place just seems to be getting better.
