“Looking forward to their leaving the food truck and moving into a restaurant where I could sit down”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is the best barbecue in the Tampa Bay area. The sauces are amazingly inventive and I think will ultimately find their way into bottles and stores all over the place. The service is friendly and helpful. They are looking for a location so that you will not have to just sit in the sun in some outdoor chairs they have around the food truck. Can't wait for that.

“Best brisket in Tampa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

The only argument about smoke shack is whether the pulled pork is better than the beef brisket. These guys have perfected meets and sauces by traveling around and experimenting
They are in a trailer so don't expect a sit down restaurant. But they do have a table and set of chairs.
