Local Favorites Highlights Peebles Bar-B-Q

Are you craving great barbeque?
Peebles Bar-B-Q has been serving up barbeque in Central Florida for over 50 years and has become something of a landmark to Polk County.
It is difficult to miss Peebles’ location on Old Dixie Highway in Auburndale with the aroma of southern barbeque lingering in the air. This savory scent greets guests’ noses from the moment they enter the parking lot to the second they step foot through the door.
Peebles offers the option of dine-in or take-out, and making that decision can be a tough one. The food is just as tasty either way, but to truly capture the complete experience and discover how good barbecue is meant to be eaten, dining in is a must. With a screened-porch dining area and an indoor smoke pit, it is easy to feel Peebles’ down-home atmosphere in its Old Florida setting.
Don’t mistake Peebles’ simplicity with lack of quality, though. With flavorful menu options of sliced beef, shredded pork, ribs and a recent addition of chicken, you can’t make a wrong decision. Add their signature barbeque sauce and try sides of coleslaw and baked beans for a tasty addition to complete the meal.
Grab it while it’s hot because Peebles is now open for the season. With weekend hours on Thursday-Saturday, it is the perfect time to make a visit to Peebles and discover some of Central Florida’s best barbeque for yourself.
