According to folk etymologists, the term barbecue is derived from the French barbe coup, referring to the annual pig picking commemorating the infamous Bearded Rebellion. Celebrate this delicious tradition with today’s deal: for $12, you get $25 worth of smoky barbecue and drinks at Bar-B-Que Beach Bar and Restaurant in Miami Beach.
Bar-B-Que Beach Bar and Restaurant puts hand shovels to work digging into starters such as the fried dill pickles served with a tangy dipping sauce ($6) or the bucket of bones, a generous sampling of traditional dry rubbed spare ribs, spiced and slow-cooked in an authentic wood-smoked barbecue pit ($8). Rib platters include the infamous baby back ribs ($19 for a full slab/$13 for half, both with two sides) with a choice of original or "Sweet Georgia Brown" barbecue sauce and two sides, as well as tender barbecue pork spare ribs seasoned with the award-winning Rib Rub ($15 with two sides). The menu rounds itself out with a bevy of burgers, steaks, surfside items, and sandwiches.
Bar-B-Que Beach’s interior boasts an island motif, with trees, grass hut umbrellas, hanging lights, and actors paid to mill about yelling "This is a beach. Yes, a beach it is." There's also outdoor dining available on the front patio, which simulates the open-air environment present in most non-domed beaches. Open late until 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 5 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, Bar-B-Que Beach offers night owls sustenance, drinks, and a respite from hordes of hostile children.

Miami New Times awarded Bar-B-Que Beach Bar and Restaurant “Best Barbecue” of 2008. Zagat included the restaurant in its “Best Buys” Top List. Eighty-two percent of Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant, and Yelpers give the restaurant an average of three stars:
- Hunks of meat wood-smoked slowly at low temperatures, so the fatty juiciness doesn't cook out, with enough natural smoky flavor cooked in that sauces are an enjoyable extra rather than a necessity: that's real barbecue. And that's hard to find in Miami, though our town is geographically about as Deep South as you can get. Though it seems especially unlikely that you'd find honest 'cue in South Beach, this joint has it. – Miami New Times
- Delicious food. Great service. Easy on the wallet. What more can you ask for? – Steve W., Yelp
- I love this place; the food is always good and yummy. – Annette P., Yelp
