It's more than "food" - it starts with the smoker on the corner of Dale Mabry & El Prado belching out the "smell." It's the black cinder block building, concrete floors, Formica top tables. It's the staff - friendly, efficient, and call you "honey" the first time you walk in. Then there's the food, pulled pork and my favorite - ribs. Always order the sauce on the side - so you can enjoy the smoky meat "au natural" then kick it up with the sauce. This is not "fine dining" rather "great experience" involving BBQ.

Friendly staff and amazing food at a great price! I had the brisket sandwich with cornbread. They also gave me a free sample of the sausage and it was amazing also!

This was our first time visiting BJ’s Alabama BBQ, while on a trip to Tampa. We had the rib and chicken with collard greens and cornbread platter and the ribs and pork with collard greens and Mac & cheese platter. All of the meat was great and the collards were delicious!! The girl running the front was very nice, which always nice down south.

All in all, this place is nothing fancy, but the BBQ was great. We’d definitely recommend it.

Seen some reviews on this place but honestly no review will do this place justice. This place is legit. Watch them bring the meat in off the smoker out front. The ribs are succulent. The brisket is soft. Their sauce is to die for!smoker
