Art’s Southern Style BBQ also features other specialty items, including homemade peach cobbler and a “Best in the South” signature sweet hickory smoked BBQ sauce.

Artwork of famous blues musicians and well-known entertainers adorning the walls offer a complimentary backdrop suitable to the ambiance for celebration and great BBQ dining created by live blues style entertainment from the restaurant’s own house band.

“After an extraordinary nineteen consecutive years in the restaurant business, we are pleased to have anchored a significant niche in this growing community,” notes co-owner Marilyn Holmes. “We’ve received four stars from food critics and maintained a strong following by preparing good southern food at affordable prices.”

Art’s Southern Style BBQ is family owned and operated by co-founders Artis and Marilyn Holmes.  Before retiring from the military in 1993, the couple opened their first restaurant, and introduced authentic southern style barbeque where they lived in Rapid City, South Dakota.  Since then, Art’s Southern Style BBQ restaurants have been established in Coral Springs, Florida, and Altamonte Springs, Florida, receiving critical acclaim for undeniably good food.

The restaurant is open for lunch Monday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m., and closed Sundays.  Art’s also offers catering services for special events and parties, as well as shipping of fully cooked food orders.
