Sparky's Roadside BBQ
Miami certainly isn’t known as a barbecue town and our options show it. Sparky’s, however, is a rare exception and makes simple, tasty barbecue. This casual spot is really the only place in Downtown where you can order a beer and a plate of smoked or grilled meat. The St. Louis-style ribs are very tasty and they also have some Miami-specific barbecue takes - like their version of a vaca frita called the “fried cow,” which subs in pulled brisket for pork and is very good in sandwich-form.
