***** Blue Willy’s Barbeque, 613 Southeast 1st Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301, (954) 224-6120.

Blue Willy’s Barbeque…food truck with a huge cooker in a parking lot. Handful of benches to eat at.

Some of the best “smoked” bbq that Jeff Eats has ever eaten.

A recent outing had Jeff Eats doing…Saint Louis ribs, bbq chicken, chopped pork, beef brisket. mac & cheese, French fries. Like I said two seconds ago—delicious bbq.

Blue Willy’s offers something like 5-6 different sauces…Jeff Eats really liked the mustard based Carolina Style and the sweet tomato based Blue Willy’s BBQ.

If I had to do a pecking order…beef brisket was off the chart as were the ribs…almost off the chart was everything else including the mac & cheese and French fries.

To wrap it up, really good smoked bbq stuff. If you want to “fine dine” this joint ain’t for you. Don’t wear your good tee shirt, because the sauce is gonna get all over it.

I loved Blue Willy’s–which is open Monday-Friday 11am-5pm, closed Saturday & Sunday.

    Jeff, sounds outstanding! Do they have fish or shrimp?? You need to schedule a restaurant meeting with your blog readers……

    I totally agree the best around. Go on Thursday get the pastrami no other restaurant that serves pastrami comes close and you’ll only go to Blue Willies for it.

      Jon G thanks for your persistance on this. Can you buy stuff by the pound?

      • frankw says...

        Just saw the menu they do sell by the pound. Going to go next Thursday. By the way Jeff they now are open on Saturday.

            Went yesterday and got most everything. Brisket and ribs were remarkable. Pulled pork and chicken were excellent.

            Big news. He is beivg evicted due to construction and must move in two weeks. He does not yet know where he is going to go.

          • Jon g says...

            Wow!!! Well where ever he goes I’ll find him and I hope everyone else does too. Frankw, Did you try the pastrami? If not go next Thursday you won’t be disappointed and you’ll track him down just to have more.

          • frankw says...

            Couldn’t go on Thursday so missed the pastrami. Owner is a really nice guy. Agree with you that his food head and shoulders above the rest .

    Jeff,
    Got to compliment you.
    really like how your blog allows and actually gets readers to respond to each other and in some cases like this one provide various information to one another.
    By the way, I’ve eaten at Blue Willy’s and the pastrami and brisket are excellent.

  4. Sid L. Turner says...

    best bbq around. a must try.

  5. frankw says...

    Jon G you are right. The pastrami is amazing. Even better than Zingers.

  6. Carls says...

    Just ate there today (New location 1386 S Federal Hwy, Pompano)

    Top rated BBQ, some of the best I have had in a while.

  7. Jon G says...

    Went to the new location the other day and still the best!! It was Thursday in the afternoon and they ran out of the Pastrami so I had a brisket and rib plate you get 2 sides and 2 slices of bread for $13. All I can say is WOW!!! The ribs were I’ve best I’ve ever had no need for sauce. All I can say is the food is amazing!!!

  8. David says...

    did not think it was possible but Blue Willy has now produced the BEST pastrami on the planet.Sorry,Mr. Zinger,I love your version but this one gave me heartburn for 7 hrs. and that is a sign of having digested something good.Cannot wait to get another Thursday pastrami sandwich!

    • frankw says...

      Went yesterday for the pastrami. Got there at noon and waited in line for ONE HOUR. Pastrami is crazy good but nothing is worth that kind of wait. Will skip pastrami Thursday and get the other stuff on a normal day.

  9. ZED says...

    Pastrami is very good.
    But you can only get it on Thursday.
    So I’ll go to Zinger’s Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday for my pastrami needs. Just that simple.

    Jeff the place is now a brick a brick and mortar. I was there today and it’s
    better than before. Do yourself a favor and go early on Thursday for the
    pastrami. You will never want anyone else’s pastrami again.

    i’m one of the Blue Willy Pastrami “club” regulars.I started buying the pastrami sandwiches and treating my fellow workers.They cannot believe how good it is.I even brought out of town guests.they are overwhelmed by the flavor and tenderness.As long as my stomach lining can hold up,I will keep going back.
