Great people! Great BBQ!

First went here Dec 2014. Was very impressed with service and food. Amazing BBQ and sauce! The potato salad is one the best I have had.

I have visited Jazzy's many, many times over the years. I almost always get pulled pork. The pork is good but usually a little dry. I never liked their only sauce. More recent additions to the barbecue scene in North Tampa overtake Jazzy's. Jazzy's is kind of a dump. Not always bad in the barbecue business, but the food doesn't... More

Today, I decided to get the sausage sandwich for lunch with fries, talk about happy I did! The sausage had an excellent taste and the sauce gave it an extra flavor. Today I even put sauce on the fries. Usually I have the chicken or ribs, both of which are excellent, the sausage was something new to try and I'm... More

This restaurant is across the street from the Country Inn and Suites which we stayed at. It was very good! You order at the counter and they call your number when done. I saw small homemade pies at the checkout and I wish I remembered to get one on the way out. Order it with your meal so you won't... More

Haven't been to Jazzy's for several years and we were headed to another restaurant but the smell at the intersection drew is in. The place has been remodeled since last time. Friendly service. I ordered a pork sandwich with beans and potato salad. The meat is tender. The sauce is either mild or hot. Mild means just that, very mild.... More

Jazzy's was decent. I had the beef brisket which was shredded. It was a little fatty and drenched with sauce. The mac n cheese, greens & corn bread were good. No problem getting seated on a Friday night, but the carry out was steady. It was conveniently located to the Hampton Inn where we stayed overnight. Not bad, just not... More

I'm sure most people have driven by it a hundred times and never once thought to stop. It's like the saying "Never judge a book by its cover." And while I don't dare to read a book I'm never going to judge a place by its appearance, that just means they spend more on their product (or food in this... More

I have been there with some friends to taste its ribs. The taste was fantastic and the amount was large enough. Good quality at a good price.
