Most anything you get here is good to outstanding. The best fried green tomatoes I've ever had anywhere, always served hot & crispy with a delicious green goddess dipping sauce. Tried their jumbo smoked wings for the first time tonight and I've discovered a new fave. They are humongous, coated in a terrific dry rub and had such a fantastic... More

If you've not been to Hank's on N. Dale Mabry, you're missing out. The sweet smoke aroma envelops you the moment you open the car door. Walking inside, you're welcomed by a warm, quaint, comfortable atmosphere. There's quite a selection of entrees, and sides to satisfy any taste. Typically there's a special, but my go to is the smoked sausage.... More

We had all you could eat catfish, pulled pork, beef brisket, The food was hot and tasty, the housemaid sauces were excellent. And you've got to try the homemade desserts.

Okay, I admit it I am not a big barbecue food kind of guy, but I had to say that I really enjoyed eating at Hank's. I like that it is simple, old-fashioned good food at a very reasonable price. I loved the hush puppies, the fried okra, and on this visit I had the chicken tenders (I have had... More

We got gumbo, wings, ribs, sausage, okra, cheese grits and hush puppies!!! It was all so good! My husband is so picky and he took ALL the leftovers home which never happens. They have 3 sauces which are all yum! I highly suggest this for southern bbq!

Had dinner here with my brother. I had the fried catfish dinner that was exceptional. The catfish was perfectly cooked and tasted fresh. The dinner portion was very large and came with 2 sides. Did it leave here hungry. Will definitely eat here again. At Hank's you order at the counter and they bring it out to your table. Very... More

Even though Wednesday is all you can eat catfish. Usually one helping is large enough to satisfy me. This place has the best barbeque ribs, pulled pork and fried catfish in the county. Don't miss this place if you love barbeque.

If you have not been to Hanks in Carrollwood, you're in for a treat. Go hungry and enjoy the bar-b-que, chicken or best of all the catfish. The atmosphere is casual, relaxed and just fun. This is the real deal. And when you're there make sure to say hello to Hank - he's probably in the kitchen. Enjoy!

Hank's is on Dale Mabry, just north of Waters Ave. This is not an area of town that I normally frequent. But I was with a customer who invited me and telling me how good everything is. They serve fried catfish, brisket, ribs, chicken, smoked sausage and more, along with all of the expected side dishes (collard greens, baked beans,... More

If you want fall off the bone BBQ ribs, look no further. Hank's does barbecue right. The ribs are moist, juicy and tender. A great price for a generous portion of smoky goodness. Compliment the meal with Tampa's best collard greens or green beans and you won't be disappointed. Order a side of hush puppies to share with the table,... More
