“Great BBQ lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Just had lunch at Poppa's. Not a big place but if your looking for a Great BBQ sandwich this is the place. You walk up to the counter let them know what you want an in a couple of minutes you will have a sandwich to write home about.Our lunch came out looking just like the photo. If you are in the area take the time to stop by one of the best. Remember it is only open for lunch during the week.

Going to try the chicken and ribs next time out.

“Clesed at 4:00”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Went to Poppa's based on Trip Advisor ratings and review of website. Everything said they served dinner. Went at 7:00PM on Thurs Sep 12th and found it closed. Called phone number and they said it closed at 4PM during the week. Don't know what's going on but suggest you call before going there for dinner.

“Wish they had longer hours &more interesting sides, but they sure know how to BBQ meat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

They are only open until 4, and only on weekdays so it took me awhile to be able to try out their food. It's belly up to the counter to order kind of place. Prices are reasonable. They serve Memphis style ribs, pulled pork and BBQ chicken and I've tried them all. The meat is consistently tender, flavorful and delicious. Sides include coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans or bags of chips. I was disappointed with the sides I have tried so far. The coleslaw is fresh cabbage and carrots. I like my dressing creamy, sweet and spicy and there just wasn't much flavor besides cabbage. Baked beans tasted like your standard out of the can fare, but did have a couple of chunks of pork in there. Have not tried the potato salad yet. For beverages, you make your choice of pre-bottled sodas, water or tea. There are only a few tables inside and a picnic table outside, but they have a great deal of traffic at lunch time - mostly from hard working guys. Not a place you could take a group of people to eat and expect to sit together. I give it five stars for the consistently excellent meats!

“Best BBQ In the Tampa/Clearwater Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I go to lunch here once a week. They make the best BBQ pork/ribs I've had anywhere in the Tampa/Clearwater area. I highly recommend it!!
