Great food stop before taking friend to PIE. Line out the door when we arrived but it moved fast, food ready quick and it was fantastic. Definitely a go back!

Hidden gem behind Gabts cafe. Call ahead with order because it does get packed at lunch time. But well worth the wait. The pulled pork is probably one of the best I ever had. Great local place. Good service

I eat here once a week - probably too often. The pulled pork sandwich is great, the ribs are the best around. Popularity has grown tremendously, so lunch (for me) starts at 11 to make sure I can get in and out in a reasonable...More

We both got the special that included a pulled pork sandwich, three ribs and coke slaw, potato salad and a drink. Memphis style, dry rub with sauce if you want. Great flavor. Short lines. Mmm

It was good BBQ, nothing amazing but for the price you can't beat it. I would return if I was back in the area.

I've eaten here several times on my way to ST. Pete Beach and it never disappoints. Succulent, savory, mouth-watering - just pile on the adjectives because they are all true. This cat knows how to do BBQ and you'll not soon forget how good it...More

Amazing value and incredible food. Very simple menu so if you don't want pulled pork, ribs, or chicken you're at the wrong place. All three meats are fantastic. The sauce is just right combo between sweet and hot. I just wish they were open more!

Excellent BBQ. Never had a bad meal. Very low prices. Could easily charge more and nobody would complain.

Hmmm. Not sure on the Gluten. I didn't see any of the typical dog friendly stuff there. The place is pretty simple and safe outside. Good luck. Also try calling them (727) 954-8871.
