Without question and with as many BBQ joints as are popping up in Tampa Bay, this brisket is unquestionably the very best around. The brisket sandwich absolutely dominates in texture, moisture, and a delightfully Smokey flavor. The bun is perfect - soft and buttery. The Mac busts with cheesy delight. A cool, urban minimalist decor makes this a trendy and comfy meal spot.

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the Imagine glass museum just around the corner.. as a matter of fact when we walked out of the museum we could smell the BBQ. We had ribs and pulled pork. Both really good with a choice of three sauces(sweet, tangy or spicy). We tried both the sweet and tangy. I preferred the tangy. They also had a nice variety of craft brews on tap which was perfect with the BBQ.Very small but fun restaurant.. the only downside was we had quite a long wait for food that surely was already prepared ( ribs and pulled pork) but as we were on vacation we weren't pressed for time. For someone stopping for a short lunch break one might have to ask them to hurry it up.

A great night to grab bite to eat outside. Our first time to Urban B&BBQ. A friendly greeting as we entered and we sat outside on the patio under the sail. Nice ambience. After exploring the menu and advice of our delightful server, got a full slab of Baby Back Ribs, scratch made slaw (thumbs up), and the best Mac & Cheese ever. Nice thick rib meat and not dry. Tasty flavor with just the right amount of char for me. So yummy I didn't remember there was sause on the table until I was 1/2 finished. Next visit it'll be the pulled pork and more slaw. Or maybe just the Mac and cheese. Thanks for a nice evening.

If you are looking for a small neighborhood feel eatery this is it. Down home cooking with some indoor seating but most seating is outdoors some covered. Shuffleboard area for anyone wanting to play children and pets all are welcome. Decent prices and casual attire. A new little fab of mi e now. Beer, sodas, teas available.

Stopped by because they are pet friendly outside, and my friends had their dog with them.
We sat out front and had to let them know we were there, but service from that point on was attentive and friendly.
The Meat Candy is to die for - bacon wrapped kielbasa cooked in brown sugar - my mouth is watering now.
Two of us tried the cornbread tacos - cornbread pancake with pulled pork, slaw and sauce - amazing! We also both had the rib meat slider - delicious!
Our companion had the pulled pork nachos and a side of garlic mashers - all good!
I will definitely be back to try more of the menu (and beers) from the inside.
