This little building was an ice cream and snack stop along the Pinellas Trail for many years. I was disappointed when they closed down and signs for a BBQ restaurant were tacked up. Being from North Carolina, I have very high expectations for my BBQ...More

Only open on Fri and Sat for a few hours each day. Stopped by and grabbed some rubs and a pork sandwich, both great! Friendly service and fast. The line is long at peak hours so prepare to wait. But it IS worth it.

Such a fabulous find! Show up early and bring dinner home! This family run place has all of the charm of a real southern bar-be-cue! The smokehouse, the flavor, and the very kind and helpful family who run the place. A must stop for anyone...More
