Tamps FL BBQ and Diner's.............

I will be at the Homewood Suites near the airport in Tampa for about 10 days. Can you suggest a few good BBQ joints and a few diners with good country food near the HS. Thanks for the help.

  1. On BBQ, I would recommend Jimbo's on Kennedy and Holy Hog on Armenia. Jimbo's for the nostalgia and Holy Hog for the best all-around. Plus HH has brisket also.

      another vote for Jimbo's. (and the pickles.)

      (hey, Ribdog - your post links to a Jimbo's way down in Cape Coral...)

        I noticed that and deleted from my post. But thanks for letting me know.

        X2 on Holy Hog, Jimbo's is more of a fun space, but the food never blew me away.

        if you don't mind a drive, Hot Rod's is really awesome. Great bat.
