Better BBQ than what I had in Texas. The staff is very personable and the customer service is great. We passed through on our way back to Orlando and got there just as they opened. Everything was fresh and tasty. Two big thumbs up!!

Place is not much to look at: basic blue-collar lunch joint, but food? AMAZING! We went there twice while visiting Clearwater and were pleasantly surprised. Ribs and pulled pork are just fantastic. Cole slaw is OK, beans are great. Self-service with polite and friendly people...More

Awesome chopped pork platter. Pork was moist and tender. Beans and cole slaw were average. Had to wait 15 minutes in line to order and got food quickly after that.

Hidden gem behind Gabts cafe. Call ahead with order because it does get packed at lunch time. But well worth the wait. The pulled pork is probably one of the best I ever had. Great local place. Good service

I eat here once a week - probably too often. The pulled pork sandwich is great, the ribs are the best around. Popularity has grown tremendously, so lunch (for me) starts at 11 to make sure I can get in and out in a reasonable...More

We both got the special that included a pulled pork sandwich, three ribs and coke slaw, potato salad and a drink. Memphis style, dry rub with sauce if you want. Great flavor. Short lines. Mmm

It was good BBQ, nothing amazing but for the price you can't beat it. I would return if I was back in the area.

Hmmm. Not sure on the Gluten. I didn't see any of the typical dog friendly stuff there. The place is pretty simple and safe outside. Good luck. Also try calling them (727) 954-8871.
