Aroma drove me in

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... read more

Drive down West Bay Drive and your sniffer will direct you right on in to this fabulous BBQ joint! We drive from Clearwater at least twice a month just to pick up some Ribs, Chicken or Pulled Pork........... This place rocks!!!!!

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

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.
