This is the Gold Standard for St. Pete barbecue. It has been around for at least 40 years. The building is worn but the food will warm your palette! Best for take-out. Easy to find location right by Gibbs High school on US 19 on...More

Authentic barbecued chicken and pork - Smokey, tender, delicious. Great sauce. Just reopened after a major renovation -- what an improvement! Nice folks run the place. We always get ours "to go". Giant portions of deliciousness.

Big Tim's is in definite need of a facelift inside and out. With no reviews on here...its lack of tidiness is probably why. People do not want to go into a run-down place to eat. Anyways, while the pulled pork and brisket sandwiches are pretty...More
