I have been here twice, on successive trips to Florida. Read about it in a cool book called "Visiting Small Town Florida", by Bruce Hunt. Made the trek to Anna Maria Island from St. Pete's, and it was well worth it! The atmosphere is casual, service friendly (our server, Alec, remembered me from my previous trip), and the food yummy. I confess I have only had the ribs, but they were good value, and not fatty at all. The schtick here is that the food is prepared by New Orleans trained chefs, so you will find no salt, pepper or ketchup on the tables, nor will any be provided. No need! I had the 1/2 rack of baby backs in smoky BBQ sauce, and almost sucked my fingertips off after! With that meal, you get vegetable rice (tasty) and one side. Have the coleslaw, it is to die for. Soda is refilled. You help yourself to beers and cocktails from a coffin. It's not as macabre as it sounds! A great little local, not likely to change if it gets too popular!
