We always either get ribs, or shredded beef when we desire BBQ. We don't use the BBQ sauce b/c it is 2 spicy 4 us; but, the meat is great on the hamburger buns as it is (w/o any sauce). Also, the corn on the...More

We eat at Alex's several times a year and even had them cater our son's graduation party. The food is always so good and the service is fast!

Place was dirty. Service was mediocre and food was nothing special and not a good value for the money. I'm sure there are better places in Tampa go barbecue.

We always get Alex's BBQ to go, as the actual restaurant is far from inviting. But the beef is very good, and healthy portions that make a great family meal. Sometimes the corn on cob is a bit water logged, but beans are awesome.

My family and I visited Alex's for lunch and the food was delicious. The ribs were so tender and juicy. We ordered a family meal which was more than enough food to feed everyone. My children loved the sweetness of the baked beans. The barbeque...More
