We just left Poppa's after having it for lunch. Quick service, friendly staff and the food was great!

We took our soccer team, and 8 chaperones to Poppa's and it was a great meal!! We loved the experience; the meal, the price, and the quaintness of the restaurant. The girls had only one regret... we ate there on Friday, and we left Sunday without being able to go back! Thank you, and we look forward to coming back... More

Being married to a recent calorie counter convert, I have been subjected to healthy, and occasionally tasty meals for the past year or so. When business took me to Clearwater by myself, I asked my phone "best bbq clearwater," and this was tje first on the list. My only slightly negative is the lack of seating, but that was a... More

I come here at least once a week - you can't beat the pulled pork sandwich here. For the price, you could eat at a fast food chain or you could have really, really good BBQ. There is no where really close to here that compares. The earlier you get there the better - parking and seating are very limited.

I really like BBQ and its sad that many Florida cities don't have great southern BBQ. Because this place was so far away from me (Clearwater Beach) I said I would try it if I was nearby. So yesterday I met a vendor for lunch. We both had the ribs but I also had the pulled pork sandwich. Both were... More
