I have come to the realization that good BBQ does not exist in South Florida. After eating at Park Avenue BBQ it did not change my mind at all. The best thing about this place was the people. A very nice and courteous wait staff (a hard find especially in Boca). \r
My friend and I are two big foodies and have been craving good BBQ or at least a place you would want to go back to. We ordered a number of things to get a well rounded taste of what they had to offer. First thing we had, was the Corn Fritters. What a disappointment these were so dry and dense and barely any corn in them. Powdered sugar came on the side, and you were given honey and maple syrup to dip them. Next was the onion rings since the waiter said how good they were. These were like rings you can get at any other place. Nothing special to write about it's just an average beer-battered onion ring. I got my entre a large Pork BBQ sandwich with a side of beans, coleslaw and Mac -n cheese. The bread on the sandwich was dry and hard as a rock the meat had zero flavor. No spice was used at all and the meat was so over cooked and dry. Coleslaw was good and seemed fresh. The beans were the best thing. They had great flavor they had pork meat in it and the flavor was great. The mac-n-cheese was disgusting! Ok its not hard to make a good mac-n-cheese and do it cheaply. This was a prepackaged mac-n-cheese warmed up and served no pepper or salt to flavor it. And the macaroni was mush. The manager saw that neither me nor my friend ate our mac-n-cheese asked us what was wrong with it. After telling him how mushy and flavorless it was and told him to take it off the menu. He offered to exchange it for something else but there was too many misses with this place to try something else. However he did not take it off the bill. Generosity only goes so far I guess. Oh my friend had their rack of baby back ribs. Ok they had a smokey flavor but these were grilled and not smoked. There was no smoke ring on the meat and they were flame chard. I am shocked that this is a chain. If you like less then average BBQ then this is your place. If you like good flavored BBQ and sauces worth using then bypass this place you will be glad you did.
