I was visiting in the Tampa area when a local suggested Jazzy's BBQ. When we arrived, there was a small line wait, so I figured it might be worth staying. It became obvious immediately that there were not nearly enough help behind the counter. I placed my order and the lady behind the counter was fantastic. She helped me order... More

We found this place on tripadvisor (where else). First impression when walking through the door is that this place needs a serious renovation. We ordered Ribs, extra sauce, fries and potato salad. Didn't blow us out of the water but was a decent meal.

Our coworker to us there for lunch since we were from out of town. At first I thought hmmm. But let me tell you. The Mac and Cheese was the best I have had as well as the Collard Greens. As far as the Barbeque it was Super Great but just a little too much sauce for me. I would... More

Went here with the family after a trip to the Big Cat Rescue (took about 10 minutes or less to get there). The 4 of us were starving and we ended up sharing a family order of ribs with 3 sides; cole slaw, fries, and corn. There wasn't a huge amount of food, but it was enough for us. The... More

I'd give them all 5's if they would just clean up the place. It's got a heck of a lot of potential. Just needs a good cleaning.
