This place offers simple but great tasting BBQ. They have pork, beef, and chicken. The sandwiches are a great value. They also have ribs, but I did not try them. Their beef is not brisket, which I did not see anywhere on the menu, but nevertheless, it is very tasty. The prices are very good, the place is very clean,... More

Kinda like a backyard bar-b-que...sit at picnic tables! Great bar-b-que with sauces of your own to add! Try the hush puppies! Right on the way to the airport for a snack before boarding!

I go to Jimbo's regularly. I appreciate how quickly I can get in and out while still enjoying a good meal at fair prices. The staff is friendly and attentive. They have TVs to keep you busy if you are dining alone, as I often do. Their bbq sauce is not the type I am normally a fan of, I... More

We enjoyed our dinner so much that we decided to cancel our dining arrangements for the next day so we can come back. It was delicious, our server was very attentive and the smell of the bbq is amazing! Don't miss it!

Service and pricing second to none. Beers are half price. Food is incredible. Great BBQ atmosphere. Will definitely be back.

Terrific BBQ. Meaty ribs, sausage, pulled (and chopped) pork. Even the sides are great, though the hush puppies are my favorite. Next time I'd have a small pulled pork sandwich rather than as an entree as the portions are generous. This place is unabashedly old school, from the black and red tile floor to the highly varnished wooden tables and... More

I have had many a lunch at Jimbo's since the early 70s. It matters not what I order, the meal is just like the last time I enjoyed it, and before that, and before that... The service is friendly and quick. The order comes from the kitchen fresh and within a very reasonable time, no matter how busy the place... More

I tried Jimbo's for the first time when I catered a party for my husbands birthday. My husband LOVES this place so I decided to give it a try. I can honestly say this place is AMAZING. They were so accommodating with a last minute catering order for 20 people. The staff was absolutely so sweet and helpful that I... More

I'm not a BBQ person but this place has amazing Hush puppies and fish sandwiche! My college ordered the ribs and said it to was very good. The service staff was very friendly and attendant. The pricing is very good for the quality and amount of food you get.

During a recent visit to Tampa I visited Jimbo's twice, simply because I couldn't believe that the food was that good the first time. I wasn't disappointed on either trip. One of the most popular sandwiches is the pulled pork. The meat had that perfect mixture of smoke and sweetness that exemplifies southern BBQ. Combined with a small bowl of... More
