Such great food and a great price for what you get. My family of 8 arrived just before closing and we were warmly greeted and told we had plenty of time. The chicken had a great flavor, the pork had an amazing smoked taste and our whole order was served timely, fresh and we couldn't have been more satisfied. Definitely... More

This is my favorite BBQ in Tampa as far as taste is concerned. The best day to go is Friday. They serve up mac n cheese and collard greens and they only serve them on Fridays. The only issue I have is its a little expensive for a mom and pop joint. Other then that, its pretty good.

Quite an endorsement when you walk in and see two uniformed chefs from Bern's Steakhouse at a table chowin' down. Old school hickory pit bbq done by people who care about great bbq. Ribs, pulled, nothing average here. It's great every day, but Friday has the awesome mac n cheese and collard greens. Soul on the radio, soul on the... More

I lived in Tampa and ate here weekly. After moving we traveled back and always made one, if not TWO, visits to Jazzy's. Be sure to eat here on Fridays. It is the busiest day, but it is also the only day for fresh, home-made cornbread, beans, mac & cheese and collard greens. I don't eat the greens myself, but... More

I had the pulled pork, my husband had the ribs. We both had the collard greens and macaroni and cheese. If I try and put how delicious my food was into words...I might just have to make some new ones up. It's that good. MY husband said the sauce was amazing and his ribs were so tender. No big time...

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

As my husband & I drove by (we're from NEW York) we saw the the smoke coming from the chimney and the parking lot was full of cars. We both looked at each other and decided we were going to try it. The next day, we did. The menu had many choices and the prices were average and fair we... 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.

Hubby and I walked in, at first we were leary of the place, but starving and didn't care. We did see a group of businessmen leaving and they looked very well fed and happy. So we went in. We were greeted nicely and we sat down at a table. we waited and waited and other customers stared at us. We... More

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
