Every time we order to eat in or take out, the food is amazing. The combo sandwiches are filled with meat, Sample plate is enough for leftovers and all the sides are delicious. Ribs melt off the bone and the smoked sausages are juicy. Fast and friendly service. Only problem is they are not open Monday's!

We got the family deal. Tons of food for a great price. Everything was great. Chicken, ribs and pulled pork was so so good.

I recently spent time in the St Pete area and tried Smokin' J's while visiting a friend in Gulfport. It was very good, authentic tasting BBQ. The smoke ring on the chicken and ribs was amazingly large, and the flavor was there to back it up. I smelled the BBQ from down the street. You can get food take out or dine in, and they also have a pick up window at the side of the building. The restaurant is in a former house, and it is clean and feels very comfortable to dine in. The cost was average, but the portions large. They also have some amazing pickles you have to try sitting on the tables.

Based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and the fact there are always cars at Smokin' J's we were really excited about some good BBQ. My husband ordered the combination sandwich which consisted of brisket and pulled pork. I ordered just the pulled pork sandwich. We were asked if we wanted sweet or hot sauce. Our order was a take out but there were tables available for sitting both inside and out. We were both extremely disappointed in our sandwiches. The pork and brisket were dry as was the pork sandwich and there was very little sauce. Not sure we will give them a second try.

Cathy, my dear gulfport friend and i, each year seek out new places to eat. Dinning, or simply a beverage or snack. From where we live in Gulfport, some days our noses will catch the ocean breeze full of Smokin J's real smoke house morning preperations. Daily they slow smoke speacially prepared chicken, pork and ribs. We chide each other that...."like a dog's nose, we could not let go of all the delicious smells in the air.... and were automaticaly drawn last nite to Smoken J's. We had the $29.00 all inclusive varity pack special...ribs, chicken and pulled pork. There were 6 huge dishes and two large tubs of Mac and chesse and some of the most delicious slaw I ever ate.
Guess what. There were two of us and even if there were 6 of us, we could not eat it all. Its luch time now [next day] and i am making a sumptuious pulled pork and smoked chicken sandwich for Cathy. Smoken J's is Gulfport's....is a casual picnic basket setting. come as you are. You will not be dissapointed...and who says we can't have that great Texas flavor in Florida? WOW.
