The most awesome BBQ in Tampa!

Best BBQ we've had in Tampa. If you the smoky flavor of BBQ, this place is for you. You don't even need any sauce but their hot sauce is awesome! Collards are great too.

Good restaurant. Very courteous ,friendly staff. Very reasonably priced. Chicken was a little dry.Maybe it was unusual ,not sure. Cole slaw was amazing. Fries were excellent. Would certainly go back to try other choices on the menu.

I have come to Jazzy's many times over the past few years. They have great barbecue meats & home-made sauces, I would recommend the chicken and sausage. It's definitely preferred over Mission BBQ across the street. You can order food by sandwiches, plates, by the pound, family/kids meals, etc. Jazzy's opened Monday 11am - 7pm, Tuesday - Thursday 11am -... More

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

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.

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
