We found ourselves here for lunch. We arrived just after 12 and managed to grab one of the last spots in the car park. (Reviews say it's a small lot but it was much bigger than I expected). The restaurant was busy and already had...More

Their ribs and pulled pork are so good! The rub is mildly spicy but not overwhelming. They aren't super fatty like most places. The sides are tasty too. Service is quick and friendly.

I've eaten at Poppa's many, many times. It's so good. We order lunch for our office often, and are never disappointed. Get there early though, because the place gets packed and when the food is gone, it's gone. :)

Hmmm. Not sure on the Gluten. I didn't see any of the typical dog friendly stuff there. The place is pretty simple and safe outside. Good luck. Also try calling them (727) 954-8871.
