Great food and the prices were good too. BBQ ribs had that great pit smoke flavor. It is really hard to find good BBQ in Florida and the place is old and inconspicuous, just like we like it.

This was by far one of the best BBQs we have eaten.Spent a week in Tampa and this was the best meal we ate! Lots of food & Price is outstanding. The ribs and peach cobbler were awsome Service from Jimmy was great and friendly. Definitely a place to come back to.

Stayed at the Hampton Inn next door and walked over. A huge variety of food, not just barbecue. Steaks, seafood, sandwiches and amazing desserts. Reasonably priced as well. You can get a large barbecue sandwich with 2 sides for about 5 bucks. I had a 2 Meat (brisket and chicken) plate with 2 sides, a glass of tea, and a... More

Food was great, service not so much! 😕. As expected, a "meat" restaurant would have a good steak !! We had our appetizer tray, my salad dish, and was finished with our dinner, still no check and nothing removed from our table.

Ate here for lunch on our way back to Tallahassee. Had the lunch special of barbecue pork sandwich with french fries and coleslaw. The sandwich was all bun, and stale bun at that. The meat was tasty, but very minimal. The french fries were greasy and cold. The atmosphere was crowded and loud. This is mostly a blue-collar local dive.... More

When we rode our Harleys into the parking lot at lunch time, the spaces were all nearly full. That's usually a good sign, especially when most of the license plates are local and the vehicles are work trucks. We were waited on promptly (a tag team approach) and, though the menu was large, we settled in quickly on the BBQ.... More

We couldn't believe how incredibly cheap the prices were for delicious food. Pulled into the parking lot around noon for lunch and it was packed with trucks. Smoked stacks as well as the pulled pork and hamburger were big hits at our table. Coleslaw, potato salad and beans were yummy. Atmosphere could you a boost. Great deal on good food!

I truly wanted to love this place. I had such high hopes, but was kind of disappointed. The service was fantastic. The young lady who waited on me was polite and attentive. I waited a lot less longer for food and drinks than other people with other servers did. I ordered the ribs, I could taste the season and smoke.... More
