We went to Porkies and picked up enough ribs to feed ten, a day before Hurricane Irma arrived. Porkies ribs are outstanding! We had great beans, dirty potatoes, baked beans and banana pudding for dessert. Everything they make is so good!

We go to Porkies at least once or twice a month. Everything has always been really good. The staff is super friendly!! Love this spot in Apopka! The only thing I don’t understand is why French fries are considered two sides? 🤔

After we went to Wekiwa Springs, we stopped by Porkie's Original BBQ for some lunch and the place was really good. I had the Pork's Sandwich and it was delicious. The price was good so was the customer service. I ended buying their t-shirt too....More

Wow, Porkie's in Apopka Florida (located right on the main street) is a great restaurant with a winning recipe for BBQ, ribs and brisket. Great sides as well and a banana pudding that isn't to be missed, this casual relaxed restaurant will not disappoint.
