“Favorite BBQ”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We have visited Jimbo's many, many times. The atmosphere is truly down home, but don't be frightened away by that. The food it delicious and ample. If you've left room, order the apple pie....yummy!

“Our Favorite Place for Ribs”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is our favorite place for ribs. Not fancy just great food at a reasonable price. The review from NicholeHSwann must be about some other place - not Jimbo's Pit Bar-b-que in Tampa, Florida. Jimbo's does not serve onion rings as I recall.

“Best BBQ in town”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We have been going to Jimbo's for years. Not the fanciest place to eat but the bbq is the best. The ribs are fall off the bone delicious. Also has great hush puppies.

“Real BBQ”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Jimbo's is always very good. Authentic BBQ is not easy to find. The place is old school, but that adds to the experience. Sauces are great and the hushpuppies are awesome.

“Overpriced and not great food”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The prices were too high, the food was nothing to write home about. The Onion rings are ok, and the only redeeming thing about this place. Just not impressed. Would rather spend $30 for 2 people elsewhere.
