I thought this place burnt down?

As the amazing Becky said, it partly burned down. But it was the outdoor kitchen which was separate from the retail part of the business.

May I place an order today to pick up tomorrow?

Probably. As long as you pay cash. Give them a call. They're really nice people.

Absolutely great food and friendly, quick service. The accommodations are rather spartan (picnic tables and plasticware), but the food makes up for it. We stopped by for shredded pork and sausages, end enjoyed it so much we purchased more to go (they package in styrofoam containers to keep it warm). Hours are very limited (just Fridays and Saturdays, 11:00am - 6:00pm), and it's cash only, but worth the minor limitations.

The wife and I decided it was time to try Eli’s bbq today based on reviews and living in the area. I have previously had bbq from Colorado to Memphis and was looking forward to this experience.I’m sorry to say it didn’t come close to expectations. I ordered a white meat chicken sandwich and expected a sandwich with pulled or sliced chicken, well it was white meat in the form of a bone-in chicken wing on top and a bone-in half a back in the middle. I find it hard to believe that this is sop and hope it is not.The wife had the beef sandwich dinner which seemed somewhat better, though loaded with fat.A positive was the outside seating!

Good people serving bonafide ‘cue. This is not for light eaters or people who want fine dining. This is only for those who can handle something that is big and bold yet laid-back at the same time.

This is a local favorite. If you didn't know about it, you would just drive on by except for the wonderful aroma of meat on the barbeque. For the locals who know about it, Eli's is a place you just have to visit. The food is super delicious!

This tiny little food shack is so good they are only open 2 days a week. It's that good. The barbeque is smoked by an old guy in a separate building behind the shack. The sliced pork is melt in your mouth smoky heaven.

We just left the beach and I Googled Barbeque in Dunedin I got 3 choices but when we drove by this quaint mom and pops we knew it would be the real deal. We definitely were not disappointed and they were celebrating the life of Eli one if the founders ao we got to participate and enjoy good food and people. We definitely will be going back for more.

I've been coming back to this place for years. Their Rib's BBQ is the best and very reasonable. One inconvenience is that they open only in weekends and they don't take credit cards so you need to bring cash but it's worthy.

Pull into downtown Dunedin on Friday or Saturday by auto or bike, as so many do, and you'll somehow find yourself craving barbecue. That's Eli's subliminal advertising at work, enveloping you in the scent of his his perfect BBQ!The location may be a little off Main St, but you'll find him. Just follow your nose to where Skinner St crosses the Pinellas Trail.As for the menu, if there's a line, step up and grab a recycled paper one to select your options while you wait, and hope those in front of you don't get the last of what you want! (They do run out, and then they close.)The ribs, sauce, beans, pulled pork, slaw and sausage are fantastic; as good as we've ever had.Can't say anything about the rest, cause we can't get by our favorites to try anything else.Vitals: Friday and Saturday only. Cash only. No indoor seating, limited picnic tables. Directly on the Pinellas Trail. Limited parking. Other than that: Amazing!

Only serving Friday and Saturday but WORTH THE WAIT!! My son will ONLY eat their bbq. The best part is it is right off the trail so we hop on our bikes and ride down. Makes a great day for the kids. Can't miss the smell of the smoke traveling down the road.

Fantastic BBQ. Come early as they sell out of beef, sausage and burnt ends but that still leaves pork and chicken. Everything is awesome but the beef, sausage, and baked beans are insane! The ribs are pretty ridiculous too. Highly recommend. Also, Eli and Mrs. Eli are incredibly friendly.

If you live near by do your self a favor and stop by this family owned Bar-B-Que spot. It may be small but the food is big in flavor! Perfect location in Dunedin along the trail and Downtown. Only open Fri and Sat but it's worth the wait. Make sure you go early because they will sell out quick!

Absolutely amazing first time trying and will be a regular stopping spot. Ribs tender and juicy. Pulled pork and beef if you're into meat this place is perfect. Can buy meat by itself ... No need for bread or other fillers ... Can walk on trail afterwards to walk off a bit for breathing room . #ribsihavenoselfcontrol
