Sparky’s Roadside Barbecue (Miami)

Posted on November 16th, 2011 · American BBQ Miami


***** Sparky’s Roadside Barbecue, 204 Northeast 1st Street, Miami, Florida 33132 (305) 377-2877.

Absolutely loved this “hole in the wall” 48-seater bbq joint in Miami. Absolutely nothing fancy going on here, so your tee shirt/shorts/Crocs-sneakers-sandals ensemble is a go.

Sparky’s menu isn’t huge, but definitely gets the job done. The joint also has something like 12 million micro-brews for you beer drinkers out there.

A recent outing had me doing…corn nuggets, baby back ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, bbq chicken, waffle fries, macaroni & cheese—the bbq “not too smokey” just like I like it (you-all, do know that I’m originally from Brooklyn, not Memphis)…to break this down a bit more, I enjoyed the ribs and chicken—that said, the pulled pork and brisket were grandslams…the mac & cheese was good, same for the corn nuggets—but no match for the waffle fries which were outrageously delicious.



Like I said before–loved this joint…definitely one of the better bbq joints that I’ve been to down here in South Florida.

Sparky’s is open Monday-Friday 10:30am-9pm and Saturday-Sunday noon-9pm.

    Hi Jeff! Please stop by – the food is absolutely delicious and we just opened our doors recently. We’re located across from the PBI airport and serve breakfast and lunch. We are a new deli that just opened. My husband and I have always loved to cook and wanted to bring a true new york deli to the area. The pizzas are truly amazing as well as the sandwiches and we’ve been fortunate enough to receive raving reviews from everyone that has been eating here. We are originally from New York but moved down to Florida about 10 years ago and have owned businesses in other industries but we knew this was our next venture. If you stop by be sure to ask for Sydney or Mark 🙂

    Sparkey’s has excellent Barbaque chicken and ribs. Their BBQ sauce is wonderful. I give them a 5 star excellent rating. By Gregg L. Friedman MD, Psychiatrist, Hallandale Beach, FL
