“#1 in Tampa Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

Food: Ribs are excellent. The best in the county. I went on a rib hunt and visited 10 different rib shacks, and this one was the best. the brisket, and pulled pork are also fantastic. It really is good southern cooking. I just wish they have fried stuff too. :)

Service: Quick to order, it's self seating, so you may end up sharing a table with some other patrons when it get's busy. I didn't mind, everyone was friendly.

Value: For 20 bucks (that's including tip) you can walk away satisfied.

Atmosphere: It's a good ol' mom shop. The place is quaint.

“YUMMY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

went there on recommendation of Hotel clerk, asked for a "local" joint BBQ, and that is what it is. A small little place, order at the counter and take crap form the guy :). It was our 1st time and I asked about selections of pork, "sandwich, platter or WRAP".....Huh a wrap I said, he replied "yea, it is 2012"...lol good banter as we ordered, then to the small dining room, maybe seating 20-30 people. As we waited you could tell by the line of people ordering this is a local place. The food is VERY GOOD and nice selection of sauces, the bbq beans were unique as they had apples in them and a hint of cinnamon, I am not a fan of either, but in this case it works! We will be back next time in town, for sure

“Best BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Don't let the outside fool you. This small place has the best BBQ in town. Love the tender beef brisket and the smoked corned beef is a killer. Portions are nice, if you are really hungry get a platter. The sauces are all good, something for everyone. This is a must try.

“Im STILL HUNGRY”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

the place has a nice atmosphere. i thought the pulled pork and the beans were good. i also like the sweet sauce they had. on a sadder note the pricing is too high for the amount of food u get. for a small little BBQ spot i was expecting a little more food and maybe a little more pride in the food that was cooked. the signs of a great BBQ place are when u take pride in the food you cook and the dishes u serve. NOT HERE. trhe brisket i ordered wasnt even brisket. it was a crock pot beef shoulder pulled apart. VERY DISAPPOINTING. I GUESS NEXT TIME I WANT REAL TRADITIONAL BBQ, I'LL MAKE IT MYSELF!!!! Heres just a little tip for ownership, take a little pride in the BBQ you make, and the proportions/pricing thats going on. i spent $14 and im still hungry, not signs of a good BBQ spot
