Guess this means no more Memphis Piggy.
The windows of Bar-B-Que Beach, the popular South Beach emporium of wood-smoked meats, are covered in somber brown paper. (Bar-B-Que Beach Two in North Miami folded a couple of years ago.) A posted sign thanks customers for their support through the years and announces that Hogzilla's Inspired Barbecue will move into the space come mid-October.

Bar-B-Que Beach debuted on 16th Street and Washington Avenue in early 2007. One of Miami New Times' restaurant reviewers at the time wrote that the barbecued ribs "may have been the best I've ever eaten in my entire sparerib-scarfing life." Well, that's the thing about sparerib-scarfing lives -- they are subject to sudden change. Until Hogzilla's moves in, South Beach residents will just have to get their barbecue at Sparky's Roadside Barbecue, Bulldog Barbecue, Shorty's Bar-B-Q...

I can't speak for how the restaurant use to be but that was before the new owner came into town. Watch out now! Trust me when I say the food/service/ambience is going to blow you away. You won't know until you try it! :)

Sonny's, Miami-Dade needs one and preferably down the street from me. Their house sauce is not a liquid smoke secret ingredient like Shorty's nasty sauce. Talk about ruining a good piece of meat that was smoked for hours. This sauce is better than anything you can put on Shorty's bbq or pretty much anyone else's other than Sonny's.

Most of the bbq sauce I've tried at other places try to pass off a watered down, runny version of Wal-Mart BBQ sauce (Great Value brand).

Its gonna be the kind of place every town needs to have. A home away from home that treats you like an old friend. Can't wait to see you all there.

That place blew dogs for nickles. And it looked like 1984 threw up on the inside. Hogzilla will be epic.
