This place USED to be good. It is not. About a year ago, the owners got cheap. Quality is awful. The sauce changed. Chicken breasts' started being sliced in half, then thirds. Baked potatoes are refrigerated and microwaved. Good cheese was replaced by cheap cheese and covers up with pepper. Garlic bread is now white bread. Shame on you, Lucky... More

Took my cousin to have a meal and ohh boy did we enjoy the Brisket meals. I actually ordered another meal to go for lunch the next day.

Not worthy.... I apologize to those who eat here regularly and leave 5 star reviews, but IMHO you may have little real knowledge about constitutes good BBQ. I ordered the full rack of Baby Back ribs and was presented with a charred remnant of what used to be a piece of pork. Did they fall off the bone? NO, they... More

After a first bad experience with Luckie B's a few years ago, with take out (meat was tough for one), we tried it again a year later. Same experience. Last night, hungry for bar b que, I talked my husband into trying it one more time. When he arrived home with the food, it smelled wonderful. How totally and completely... More

Had half a bbq smoked chicken, excellent and not dry. Asiago mac and cheese was great too! Super crispy tater tots and steak fries. Hubs had the brisket burger and chili tater tots and is super happy!! Kiddo loved the thick grilled cheese. We will return! Service was super nice too and lots of great Western decor. My dad would...

I love barbecue and I have found Dickie's BBQ the best in the Tampa Bay Area. Normally i would have no reason to try another place but my significant other had bid on some items at a recent charity event and one of the things that she unfortunately got was a $25 gift card to Luckie B's. I found the... More

This was our first visit here (my wife and I). We were immediately struck by the abbreviated attire of the hostess and waitresses. They were not Hooter's revealing, but were more revealing and short than what we felt was appropriate and we wondered about the necessity of this. When we got our food, we fully understood. Look at the scenery... More

We go here weekly, the specials and great. This is classic American BBQ, not at all fancy. Smoked Wings are a must! Burgers, steak, chicken, fish, pork are good. Excellent sides for vegetarians. Love the Long Island Iced Teas, This is a local hang out.

How have I missed this? I can't remember better BBQ since I was in LA at Baby Blues. We stopped here after meandering 4th street not wanting to get near the race crowd and almost didn't go in because we weren't really hankerin' BBQ. Now, I can't wait to get back there!! Although not a BBQ expert; I have been... More
