When you’re hankering for the best barbecue experience ever, Barefoot BBQ is the ultimate place to go. This surf-inspired food truck sits right along the 30A, always ready to serve up just what you’re craving. You can get smoky barbecued meats of all kinds, including pork, brisket, and chicken by the ton. They smoke all their meat onside using a Tiki Dust rub and precise techniques honed over the years.

You won’t want to miss their tantalizing sides either, which are almost good enough to stand on their own. They have all of the fan favorites, including baked beans that are just a little bit sweet while bringing the heat. Their mac and cheese is good enough to write home about since it’s made with Boddington’s beer, four types of cheese, and a dash of spices.

They serve all their meats and sides by the meal, ala carte, and picnic packages to go. You can even buy their bread by the 24 pack to go with whatever combination of meat and sides you choose. Their meats are served with their dry rub alone to give you the opportunity to dress them up just right at their sauce station.

Don’t forget to select a drink from their menu since their meals don’t automatically come with a beverage. They have tons of beer on tap if that’s your thing, plus wine, champagne, and frozen drinks galore. They also have non-alcoholic beverages, like soda and bottomless sweet tea, if you prefer.

You’ll absolutely love to try their:

House Smoked Tuna Dip
If you want to get geared up for an amazing meal, treat yourself to the House Smoked Tuna Dip as your appetizer of choice. They start this dish by lightly smoking the sushi-grade tuna. Then, they take the smoked fish and transform it into a wonderful dip before serving it up with a boatload of chips.  

3 Sliders
When you just want a quick bite to eat, there’s perhaps nothing better than their 3 Sliders. You can choose between their smoked chicken, pork, and beef brisket for each of their sliders. The best thing to do is get one of each, of course. If you want anything to go with it, you’ll have to order your sides separately.

BBQ Nachos
Their BBQ Nachos bring in patrons from far and wide, and for good reason. These nachos feature all the best flavors served here in each and every bite. Start your order by choosing between their three meats. Then, they’ll take the brisket, pork, or chicken and put it over a bed of tortilla chips. On top of that, they’ll add beans, onions, jalapenos, cheese, and sour cream to complete this amazing meal.  

Before hustling off to your table, make sure to visit the sauce station to dress up your meat. They have four distinct sauces ranging from mild and sweet to sassy and hot. Don’t settle on a favorite until you try them all since each one is better than the next. If you’re really feeling daring, push a dash of all four on your order and savor the amazing blend of flavors.

Insider Tips:
– Seats are a bit hard to come by near the street. If you want a nice place to sit, head over to the greenspace by the stage instead.
– If you feel your nachos are a little bit short on the queso, just ask for more. They are happy to oblige within reason.
– When ordering your meal to go, expect an extra charge on each item to cover the bigger containers.
– Looking to smoke up some meat at home? Don’t leave this food truck without picking up their Tiki Dust spice rub to use on your own creations.
