Chef Kenny Gilbert and his wife Anna are expanding their footprint in the Jacksonville area and bringing a touch of their Underground Kitchen with them, with plans to open Gilbert’s Social (GS), this fall. GS will be located at 4021 Southside Blvd (Suite 200), in the former Big John’s Crumpy’s Wings and Things location, just North of Tinsel Town. GS will feature seasonal and creative modern Southern fare with international influences. All of the dishes on the menu speak to a time in Kenny’s life, or tell a unique story of their own. Dishes like the Southern Fried Western Style Ribs pay homage to Kenny’s dad, while the Chilled Pemequid Oysters speak to Kenny’s time at The Ritz, where he first learned about macrobiotic cuisine. Kenny’s also bring his signature Fried and Fernandina Beach Hot Chicken, Anna’s Mac and Cheese and Smoked Pulled Pork To Duval – all favorites from the menu at his Gilbert’s Underground Kitchen in Fernandina Beach.

That being said, I feel it’s overpriced for BBQ. I know it’s just my opinion but I feel you’re paying more for the Top Chef name than the food. The meat and the sauces are right on par with other top notch hole in the wall BBQ joints in the area but def outpacing them in cost. Don’t get me wrong, Chef Kenny is fantastic, I just happen to think it’s a bit much to charge $17 for a meat and two small sides and then upcharge for a typically bbq side like slaw or Mac n cheese.

Our server was very good, knew the menu and offered recommendations. The food was unbelievable - Shrimp & Grits were the best I've ever had and the 1/2 portion was more than filling. Others tried the ribs and brisket and all raved about how satisfied they were. Nice job everyone.

I love the fried green tomatoes at the Ferindena location, wish they offered them here. But all the food is great, the best Brisket and ribs of anywhere around.

We all picked our next menu item for our return trip. Service was great, staff was friendly. Don’t be in a hurry. Not that service is bad, they are very attentive, but it is relaxed. It is designed to sow down, enjoy the company, enjoy your meal. The Mac and cheese was a hit; everybody loved it. All the briskets were great, and so we’re the various biscuits. The only thing nobody likes was the raisins in the apple pie. It doesn’t say it in the menu, and the server didn’t warn us, but the apple pie is slammed full of raisins! If you don’t like raisins, do not order! Tasted great, but I don’t like raisins. Great place. Great prices. Great staff.

Probably my favorite JAX bbq restaurant. The meat is delicious!!! I love the brisket and the pulled pork. The Brussels sprouts are my favorite side. Service was great. We will be back.

Our waiter Chucky was perfection - attentive to my water needs, taking orders, clearing plates, recommending best dishes etc. 5 stars for Chucky. Food was excellent - burnt ends app terrific; bourbon pie and fried apple dessert were superb. Mains were tasty, spicy and delish. We will be back!

The waiter was very nice about it and requested to remake but that order were undone and very small in size. However, our other food was amazing and did not disappoint.

Our table tried the following: Drunken Turkey, Fried Chicken Thighs & Catfish, garlic rice, greens, field peas, drop biscuits, macaroni salad, deviled eggs & assorted pickles. I also had the Southside & Hogan cocktail...everything was Amazing.

This is not your typical barbeque spot- yes they have fantastic brisket and the usual fare but it's the spin they put on their specialty dishes that makes it a must visit. It was our first time here and our server Kevin helped us with our choices. We has the brisket with sides of roasted Brussel sprouts and the watermelon salad. Excellent! However, it was the dish that a Kevin suggested that stole the show. Perfectly fried chicken thighs on a jalapeño biscuit with pork belly and green tomatoes. TO DIE FOR! Try this place, you won't be disappointed.

Brought my family off the recommendation of a friend, and we were blown away by the food. We split the BBQ platter, which gave us a taste of everything, and was more than enough for the 4 of us to split. My personal favorite was the Burnt ends, but choosing a favorite here often comes down to the last thing you ate. My only disappointment was that I didn’t have room for dessert. Our server was Marian, she made the experience even better. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the food left us eager to try her recommendations. Overall I couldn’t be happier with my experience and look forward to my next visit, which will be sooner than later.

The brussel sprouts - wow! We were really cold sitting under the fan though. Our waitress turned it down for us and about 5 min. later someone turned ot back up. Great great meal though!

For some reason the fried catfish was a little soggy on the bottom. Excellent tasting but a little soggy on the bottom. I had the pulled drumstick which was awesome and all sides were wonderful.

Would recommend this place to anyone looking for good food and a nice atmosphere. Not the biggest place but serves its purpose.

The noise level was pretty rough, hard to converse with my friend. Service was awesome, as usual. Will be back
