It just looks like a place where good BBQ happens...and it IS! Tiny place with just a few tables. No frills but who cares when the food's this good? We each had a combo platter so between us sampled all the meats & sides. Moist, meaty ribs that just fell off the bone. Tender pulled pork & chicken with lots... More

Our first time trying smokin rib shack, and we will be back for more! The sauce is incredible and worth the wait to get your food! We had the wings, the ribs, and the pulled pork with Cole slaw and baked beans. If you are driving through downtown Largo. Don't pass this one by!

We have been to this fabulous place every visit to our condo. We have eaten in but the tables are very limited so usually take it home. I can't comment on their food except the ribs. If I go to a steak house I order steak, if I go to a rib shack I order RIBS. We ordered 2 full... More

I had the chicken and my hubby had the pork sandwich. The chicken was very tender and had a good flavor. The sides were good, but a bit small for the portions. The pork sandwich was good and very big. Can't imagine how big the larger one is. This is more of a take out place.

But food is only mediocre. It used to be a lot better. Service is very slow and no personality. I think the owner hires family so no motivation to not get fired. There is a lot better food out there. Not inexpensive either. Over-priced for the quality.

Good shack for BBQ. Not but a few tables, and I did takeout. Friendly crew behind the counter. Had the rib dinner, which was good (might've been better without so much sauce). Portion was ample. Potato salad and collard greens were also tasty.

You could drive past this place a hundred times and miss it, usually when they are cranked for business, your nose will find the way first. That how I found them the first time and have eaten, mostly takeout from them for a long time. Our experience's have been on the takeout side because the plant breaks for lunch at... More

They keep the smoke pouring out of this place cooking some very delicious meat. Prices are about right for barbecue and they have very good smoked meat. Somewhat limited side menu. Only a handful of tables and very, very casual. Every three or four months I get takeout from here and everyone enjoys it

I was driving from Tampa to my hotel in Clearwater and smelled the barbecue wafting onto the street. I pulled a U to find out if the smell was as good as the taste; delightfully, the taste was even better! The BBQ is out back and fills the local area with the scent of slow cooked meats. I picked up... More
