This BBQ is the best in Tampa. The kids love it, the wife loves it, and I love it. The collard greens are the best. The beans are not like anyplace else.

I just tried Al's Finger Licking Good BBQ for the first time. I arrived on a Thursday at 4 pm (half hour before closing) so it wasn't crowded. The founder, Al, is really nice, down to earth, and helpful. He loves what he does and it shows. Both the chicken and the beef BBQ were excellent. The rice and chicken... More

I found this place on trip advisor and wanted to see for myself what the hype was all about. the moment we walked in we were greeted by the owner and a waiter and sat where we wanted. I had the pulled pork sandwich with baked beans.. I don't know what's in those beans but they were amazing. A cinnamon... More

We love BBQ and couldn't wait to give Al's a try. This trip involved eating at the #1,2(Al's) and #7 Tampa rated restaurants. Well #2 is definitely trying harder and the other two bigger name places are clearly living in their laurels. The sausage and pulled pork sandwiches were over the top..the buns were just right and the meat and... More

We've had a lot of North Carolina BBQ, so we know BBQ - and Al's doesn't have to take a back seat to anyone. Quaint. Unique. Great food and service. We'll go back and take some friends with us next time.

This place is amazing! Everyone at my table got something different and none of us left hungry. The ribs were delicious, didn't need any of the delicious sauce that's on the table. The pulled pork's flavor was enhanced by the sweet/vinegar BBQ sauce. The corn bread was great and I highly suggest going on a Friday to get the Mac... More

We met the owners of Al's when they came to buy a dryer from our home. They asked if we had heard of Al's and we had not. We decided to go and glad we did. We love good bbq and Al's is a must if you're in the Ybor area.

Having been on multiple vacations around the country dedicated to BBQ, I’m a tough critic when it comes to smoked meats. With that said, Al’s was right in line with what one should expect for Florida BBQ. The restaurant is in a great location right near the main strip in Ybor City and you can see the smoker hard at...
