Sheila’s Famous Conch and BBQ in Lake Worth

Tried out "Sheila’s Famous Conch and BBQ" on 12 Avenue South and U.S. 1 in Lake Worth.

I was VERY impressed.

It's basically a take-out window (MC/VIsa okay) with an outdoor, covered ultracasual dining area. Caribbean music and decor, smoker billowing smoke. Not in the greatest neighborhood but clean with polite service.

Basically two sides to the menu, the BBQ side (ribs and chopped pork) and the Seafood side (mostly conch, fish and shrimp).

I like that there are many portion sizes for each entree and also meal / ala carte options. So for example you can order just 3 ribs, or a small plate of cracked conch only.

Friend got the ribs, they were very big and very good IMHO. Not baby backs, these we thought were smoked perfectly with a bit of a char on one side but not totally falling apart.

I ordered cracked conch and conch salad. Cracked conch excellent - tasty, not oily, and served with a nice dipping sauce. Superb conch salad - small but the lemon or lime marinade was busrting with flavor and freshness. I ended up dipping my cracked conch in the leftover juice.

Prices VERY reasonable. I'll be back this weekend to try more. (Conch fritters, conch chowder, chopped pork...)
