This is what we called BBQ in Ohio where I grew up. It's bbq'd on a grill, not just smoked! We discovered this place by accident when in the area and now go up there from Bradenton for the best bbq in Florida. As others have said, the meat is so tender, so flavorful, and just finger licking good! The sides are awesome, too. I've had the potato salad, baked beans and cole slaw but haven't had the pleasure of the trying the greens and cornbread which are only served on Fridays. I'm sure they are awesome as well. Jazzy's is a very casual and comfortable no frills place to eat and they do a huge take out business from what I've observed.

It is a hole in the wall kind of place. If you want atmosphere, go someplace else. If you want terrific bbq...Jazzy's is it. Firday greens are not to be missed. The 7up cake is to die for. Best 'cue in the tampa area by far.

Order to go , ready in 10 minutes. Dinner voila!!! Hot sauce over the sausage is my favorite. Corn on the cob and french fries finish it off.

The first time I went to Jazzy's was about 5 years ago. Every since then every bbq place I go doesn't even come close. I will go 1 hour out of my way just to eat at Jazzy's. I have eaten everything on the menu and there is not anything that I would not suggest. My favorite is double meat combo RIBS and Sausage with double potato salad unless it is Friday then change one of the potato salads to greens . They even have sweet tea better than Moms if you can believe that. NO OTHER BBQ PLACE CAN MATCH JAZZY'S.

I absolutely love Jazzy's!!!!!!!! I'm from Boston, MA... I visit Florida and the Tampa and St. Pete area about +3 times per year and I gotta have my Jazzy's when I'm down there.. best BBQ ever, we don't have anything like it up north. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night there are more sides to choose from. I love the slab of ribs and the chicken... my favorite is their hot sauce.... freaken AMAZING!!!

i highly recommend it... i wish i live closer though :(

Pros: Delicious

Cons: Small and Smokey cause of the BBQ pit

Before you even have a chance to see Jazzy's, the enticing aroma of fresh, wood-fired BBQ seems to seek out your unsuspecting nose, and you may very well find yourself trapped in some sort of primal, feeding frenzy type mindset. Do not be alarmed.
From the outside, Jazzy's looks like nothing more than a small, independently owned and operated hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint. Upon stepping inside, you find that this is exactly what makes Jazzy's so unique. This informal simplicity, coupled with its fully-viewable BBQ pit in the act of forging mighty racks of ribs, chicken, and pork, is what makes this diamond in the rough what it is. Their BBQ beans are also the champions over all the other, lesser beans you may find.
Jazzy's, being very casual, is a good place to bring kids (so long as you dont mind the hideous mess off BBQ sauce they'll be wearing when they leave), but due to its open nature may not be the choice for the couple looking for a romantic meal. Overall, if you find yourself in the Tampa area looking for some remarkable BBQ at a modest price, head on down to Jazzy's BBQ.

Get over yourself and visit a place that knows how to "Q". Yes all you Cheval snots in your Mercedes you would not be caught dead here. So you send the Butler to pick it up for you. This place is a little run down but makes the best ribs in town

I once lived on W. Waters Avenue less than a half a mile from this delicious lil' place of BBQ heaven. Let me tell you that this is the place to go for some great ribs and BBQ chicken, not to mention the staff of this little gem are by far the sweetest and kindest people I have ever met at a resturant in Tampa Bay. My all time favorite served at Jazzy's was the 7-up poundcake. I CRAVE 7-up poundcake!!! They use 7-up soda and mix it in poundcake to give it that lil' lemon/lime zing to the poundcake.

Its so good... if I could have a 7-up poundcake for my wedding... I would ask Jazzy's to do it!

We drove up in the late afternoon and were immediatey greeted by the incredible smell of a wood buring BBQ pit. Entering the restaurant, we met the staff (Johnny at the back chopping the meet was incredibly friendly, and Jasmine was very helpful and nice). We ordered the King of Kings sampler platters.

The KoK platter came with two ribs, a chicken leg and thigh, and generous helpings of chopped beef, pork, and sausage. The platter also came with two sides. We chose fries and cold-slaw. The meat was average in flavor and lacked the savory smokey flavor we were expecting. The sauces were average. The fries were fresh and seasoned well. Sweet tea was perfectly sweetened.

In summary - great service, good food - it's worth a shot.

This place is the best bbq yet. The ribs and chicken are to die for. If you want to trie a great combo, try the "King of Kings" combo. It feeds 2 people if not 3. The prices are so good, I use them for all my parties. They have good deals on party packs. People will think you grilled it.

Like all decent barbecue joints, you can smell Jazzy's before you see it, nestled along the shoulder of Waters Avenue. When you pull into the dirt parking lot, there's a big pile of cut wood out back awaiting theā€¦
