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 timeframe. If you're a "nooner", plan to queue up for awhile and get it to...

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.

I've eaten here several times on my way to ST. Pete Beach and it never disappoints. Succulent, savory, mouth-watering - just pile on the adjectives because they are all true. This cat knows how to do BBQ and you'll not soon forget how good it is. True story.

Amazing value and incredible food. Very simple menu so if you don't want pulled pork, ribs, or chicken you're at the wrong place. All three meats are fantastic. The sauce is just right combo between sweet and hot. I just wish they were open more!

Excellent BBQ. Never had a bad meal. Very low prices. Could easily charge more and nobody would complain.

They have the most wonderful smoked chicken breasts we have ever had. Also love the ribs and pulled pork sandwiches.

I had very high hopes for Poppa's after reading the reviews and ads, but maybe I have had too much good barbecue elsewhere. Poppa's was good, not great. I tried the combo 3 rib/pulled pork plate for $9.99 came with your choice of sides and a roll. I chose beans and potato salad. Everything was good. Nothing I couldn't make... More

The potato salad is from Memphis and is very good. You have to buy all drinks from a case, so you must buy water.
