The BBQ is good, but nothing to write home about. The sides are where it's at! Fried okra was delicious, as well as the greens.

Used them to cater our Army Reunion for 60 people and just attended another catered affair. Totally outstanding on both occasions. Brisket, pork, sweet potatoes , beans all authentic and delicious. Every guest at both events raved about the above and asked who catered the event. The in store dining is as good from many visits. Only place in Tampa... More

We ordered this through ubereats and this was absolutely one of the best bbqs I've had. The food was great. I had the brisket with collard greens and corn fritters, yummers. I will definitely order here again. Highly recommended!!!

This place has a great outdoor bar set up though slightly limited options (beer and wine only). We had the ribs and they were great but their Carolina mustard BBQ sauce is to die for! The coleslaw and jalapeño mac and cheese we could have done without. Go for the sauce!

A counter ordering BBQ restaurant with EXCELLENT BBQ selections and a wide selection of sides. Don't miss the apple cobbler type dessert cup that is delicious. The hours are limited, so check times before you go. There are a few locations around Tampa to accommodate you though. The décor includes some mounted game animal heads and fish, some swords, etc....

Decided to eat here based off other reviews I read, and I'm so happy I did! The bbq was outstanding and the portions where big. Enjoyed all the sauces, but the mustard one was my favorite.

Very good bbq. Great sides. Try Mac and cheese with jalapeños. Also yummy "Cobb" salad with bbq. Several sauces for every taste. Locations have different hours so check b4 you go. This one for instance is open for lunch only. Our new favorite bbq.

Dined with family. Restaurant is conveniently located. Food was delicious and service was fast. Not much indoor seating and we had to eat on patio which was rather hot. Will definitely stop again
