Okay BBQ

The BBQ here tastes like someone poured too much liquid smoke on everything. It's all just super smokey, and that may just be a personal sensitivity/personal taste. The sauce, however, was very good. It's good BBQ if you're driving by and don't want to go out of your way.

I ordered to go and spent $35.00 on ribs that I could not eat. The meat was tough although the sauce tasted good. I took the food to a dinner and saw many uneaten ribs on their plates. I called to let the store know I wasn't happy and it was clear that my opinion didn't count for much worth.... More

As in the last review, the flavour and taste are excellent, however they cut the ribs they cut accross the bone instead of along like everyone else, which means everything you put in your mouth you have to spit out again as its full of pieces of bone, its like eaten a uncleaned fish. Shame they they mess it up... More

No nonsense, nothing fancy, just great BBQ at very good prices. Love the collard greens too. Hard to beat for BBQ in Largo area.

Have visited many times and carried out some great food. Our favorites are their BBQ wings, great smoky taste and awesome BBQ sauce. Food is 5 stars service is hit or miss. Some at the desk could be more friendly.

Having a micro brew at Barely Mow next door and their smoke was blowing over. It smelled great and I ordered ribs and chopped pork with pork and beans and greens to go. We got home and devoured all of it. The ribs are moist and tasty and the pork was tender. More of a "to go" place but great... More

I don't use Bay Drive much so somehow this place escaped my notice. Rode by and smelled the BBQ. My nose said "not bad." Did a u turn and in no time I'm needing a shower. Ribs are good. More sauce than I like but it easy to rake some off with free napkins right? The greens were fab. The... More

I have been driving by this hole in the wall Restaurant for quite sometime. I finally had some available time to drop by. I got the rib dinner , there was a pile of awesome ribs, the sides were very small and you had to get your drink out of s cooler which consisted of canned drinks and bottled water.... More
