You can smell the aroma of Jazzy’s BBQ from long distances away as you are approaching the restaurant. The aroma draws many customers in for some of the best BBQ they have ever eaten.
Jazzy’s uses real oak wood, which gives our meat that southern, country barbecue flavor. If you like real smoked barbecue pork, beef (brisket), chicken, sausage and tasty barbecued ribs smothered in a tangy “homemade” barbecue sauce, then Jazzy’s BBQ is the place for you.
Retired NFL player Johnny Ray Smith, a defensive back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1981 to 1984, along with his wife, Pamela, former cheerleader for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, opened Jazzy’s BBQ in October, 1996, naming the restaurant after their daughter, Jasmine. Jazzy’s is located at the corner of Waters Ave., and Benjamin Rd. east of the Veterans Expressway in the Town-N-Country area of Tampa, Florida. Jazzy’s has gained a loyal clientele of area industrial and office workers, local residents, as well as receiving customers from the surrounding Tampa Bay area including other surrounding counties.
All of our side orders are prepared daily on the premises. Johnny, the owner, makes his own specialty BBQ Sauce, one hot and spicy, and the other sweet and mild. Kalen Smith, the owner’s son, also makes the BBQ Sauce and can be found mastering the grill in the footsteps of his father. Pamela makes all of the sumptuous homemade desserts, 7-up pound cake, mini-pecan or mini sweet potato pies. Whole cakes and pies are also available upon request.
Taste and See, It’s All Good!!
