The Scene
\r The large alligator pelt hanging on the wall amid a bevy of old license plates should let you know what to expect. If that doesn't, then surely the 20-plus wooden picnic benches, red and black checkerboard floor and… Read Full Editorial

My Review by zachp288700529 via Citysearch on 7/30/2012

Very generous hush puppies not the small balls I was expecting more like miniature corn cobs. Both the hush puppies and chopped pork sandwich I got were delicious and filling. Definitely worth stopping by!

Seriously Deteriorated by sunfan03 via Citysearch on 10/19/2010

Had been going to Jimbo's for 15 years, but the last two visits will be our last. Prices have gone up consideribly, portions have shrunk and the food is now only average at best. Ribs are very dry and tough. There are any number of much…

Jimbo's Pit Bar-B-Q Of Tampa is REAL TAMPA ! by Alexandra B via Insider Pages on 8/25/2009

We really like Jimbo's for authentic Tampa style! The food is always good. The pork sandwich is great and I like the touch of the free pickled veggies on the counter. Also love the laid back wooden family style decor.

Barbecue Fix by Paul S via Insider Pages on 11/22/2008

We tried this Barbecue place out on one of our soccer weekends. Wasn't that crazy bout the sauce but the ribs,chicken,french fries,and pulled pork all were superb and enjoyed by all of us.Everyone else liked the sauce,must have been me.…

Jimbo's is a great local BBQ place by jperigo via Citysearch on 5/2/2006

Great BBQ at a great price. The sauce is absolutely amazing, and the portions are large. If you go, you have to try the ribs, baked beans and slaw. Did I mention the sauce is amazing? You can put it on anything and I often do. It's served…

The best BBQ in South Tampa by tesmerjg via Citysearch on 5/1/2006

If you find yourself hungry for BBQ in South Tampa, there aren't many options. You could go to Fred Flemings, Kojacks, or a chain that may have an accidental BBQ item on the menu. Given the selection, Jimbo's is a real find! They have a…

Can't live without my Jimbo's! by Lisa D. via Judy's Book on 4/12/2006

Jimbo's is a real, down home BBQ joint! The ambiance at Jimbo's goes far beyond expectations with Picnic tables as the main seating! The give out free pickles, which are so yummy and the kids love getting their baskets of pickles! The…

Best BBQ in FL or TN!! by emacy via Citysearch on 2/20/2006

All I can say is...AMAZING! I have been going here for the past 5 years and I still can't get enough! It tops any other BBQ I ever tasted in TN (and I tried 'em all!) Love the thick-cut pickles to munch on while you wait! Try the pulled…

I LOVE THIS PLACE!! by vickstheclown via Citysearch on 7/21/2005

I have been going to jimbo's for about a year and no bar-b-que place even comes close.

User review by tobey4 by tobey4 via Citysearch on 6/10/2005

While the place was pretty empty the service was very slow. Would not do the ribs again or the cole slaw. Probably won't go back.

disappointed by reeses21 via Citysearch on 2/6/2005

I was truly disappointed with this place. My husband and I stopped for an early lunch. We walked in and the staff looked over in our direction but nobody greeted us. We sat down and waited for someone to take our order, especially since we…

BBQ & Hospitality by maidenspg via Citysearch on 7/17/2002

There's always a warm welcome at Jimbo's & the "Q" is terrific. One of the treats I miss now that I'm not in Tampa. Frankie (and brother, Jay) run topnotch restaurants and were the BEST dancers at Kathleen High in the late 50's-early…
