Johnny Ray, a former Tampa Bay Buc, runs a great place here and can often be seen at the grill. Pam, his wife, makes kick you in the sack tater salad.

Whether eating in or take-out you get great food. I love this place and all the choices. Best potato salad in Tampa. The wood is what makes this BBQ so tasty, sauce is on the side!
