Great place! Priced right and delicious. A family affair with friendly people inside. Sometimes there's a little wait in the line to order but, I promise you that it is worth it. This isn't chain BBQ. This is home cooked food done right. Everything I've had is top notch. Headed back today!

Looking for a great bbq place? This is this the place to go! Al and his staff are super friendly and the food is superb! Everything is homemade and the sides such as the potato salad beans and coleslaw are amazing! This is definitely the best bbq!

My son and I were in town for some sports and golf and a boys trip wouldn't be complete without some bbq. We went here based on TripAdvisor's rating. We both had ribs and they were great. I ordered a half rack but couldn't finish it. It came with beans and slaw.
It's really comfort food. The guys running the place were friendly. Only thing that was a well used establishment but I think it's just part of the atmosphere.

Stopped in for a lunch with the kids during our spring break vacation. Fantastic flavours and super friendly hospitality. Al was smokin' ribs out in the parking lot when we arrived (free parking btw!) and then stepped inside to help serve. Pulled pork, ribs, baked beans, coleslaw, fried okra... all of it was fantastic. Highly recommend.

If you can get here on a Friday, have the Mac n Cheese, it's outstanding. Al's is not a lot to look at, but the flavor and the atmosphere are outstanding. My husband and I come here every time we are in Tampa. Baked beans, BBQ pork sandwich, ribs...all freshly made and delicious! Outstanding BBQ!
