“Hands down best bbq in the area”

Truly great pulled pork, real savory ribs and the most amazing chicken bbq i have ever eaten. Price for food is excellent aswell as portions. Place is small but the fresh out of the bbq food is BIG.

Wow! What a hidden gem. Delicious BBQ that was coming out of the smokers as we were sitting there. Great specials. I wish I lived closer

“Great small bbq!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Being married to a recent calorie counter convert, I have been subjected to healthy, and occasionally tasty meals for the past year or so. When business took me to Clearwater by myself, I asked my phone "best bbq clearwater," and this was tje first on the list.
My only slightly negative is the lack of seating, but that was a positive omen.
I had the half rack with cole slaw and potato salad. The potato salad was decent, and the cole slaw was excellent in that the greens were very lightly flavored in the sauce, and drowned in it.
But I did not come for the sides.

The ribs were exquisitely tender with a home made tangy sauce that I am bringing home with me ($4/jar). I heartily recommend this place.

“Best lunch in Pinellas Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

I come here at least once a week - you can't beat the pulled pork sandwich here. For the price, you could eat at a fast food chain or you could have really, really good BBQ. There is no where really close to here that compares. The earlier you get there the better - parking and seating are very limited.
