Quite podsibly the best BBQ in the US – I have sampled bbq in texas, kentucky, memphis & the carolinas and Cecils is the Best I have had. The slow hickory smoked pork and beef ribs fall off the bone. I no longer live in Orlando but I mail order the pork ribs ( they reheat the best) when I get the craving
Good, best ever, I not so sure – Had dinner at Cecil's last night. You could tell it was a Texas Style the moment you walked in the door. The smell is like on others, and the line is a Texas standard. If I stopped there I would it would say it was the best ever in Orlando. Service was very good, polite and helpful. The brisket was moist and tasty, the baked beans were some of the best I tasted, the sweet potatoes on the other hand, did not stand up to the other standards. The ribs were good but not the best, a bit on the fatty side and did not fall off the bone the way I like ribs to do. (A sign of slow cooked) The ceasar salad was really bad, too much garlic and dressing, the greens were wilted to no end. The chicken was dry and not very good. I took it home and steamed it, this brought back the moisture and was very good this way. As for the ice cream, it is a nice touch, but I would skip this soft style, it lacked the creamise of a Dairy Queen.
Like TX in FL! – If you've ever lived in Texas and had BBQ, you will know it is very different from BBQ anywhere else - nowhere in the nation can boast BBQ like Texas! The owner of Cecil's is from TX, and the BBQ tastes just like it is also from the Lone Star State. It is worth the drive, and I find myself craving it!
Cecil's Texas style Orange Ave O-town – Just finished panning Bubbalou and realized I was writing a good review for Cecil's!
My rep-7 years Mc Donald's, owned Jamiacan rest.
With Cecil's what you see is what you get: Good service by the folks who prepare your food. Friendly service, "Two day" portions of great tasting ribs and chicken and sides or order ala cart meat and throw together your own at home, (although you won't want to). Plenty of great tasting sauce is provided too.
As a Chi-town native I have to stay loyal to the home town, so I can't give Cecil's a 5-star, but if I was from Orlando, I'd give 'em a "6" ******!
yummy to my tummy – There's a lot of bbq joints in orlando. But this is one of the best. Your meat is always fresh,tender, and jucy. THere sides are delicious. and you get free ice cream when you dine in.
Yee Haw! – Russ, you've done it again!!! I thought you topped the cake with Del Frisco's but I'd also drive from my home in Houston to eat your BBQ! Well, we actually flew, but if we had gotten bumped from our flight, I would have driven.
You will never eat a better BBQ meal in your life. Promise!
Way to go Pops!!!
