    Andy Salyards is doing a handful of things in the smoker — brisket, baby-back ribs, pulled pork, chicken — offering them as full plates, with a side and a roll, or as excellent and well-priced sliders. It's easy to be smitten by a moist, flavorful pile of brisket sliced onto a little …

  2. Biff Burger

    St. Petersburg : 3939 49th St N, St. Petersburg, 33709

    Back when shakes cost 15 cents, Biff-Burger dotted the Southeast. It stood for Best in Fast Food. They had drive-in service and walk-up windows, they had Тroto-broiled burgers topped with a closely guarded secret-sauce concoction. Now, it appears, there's only one Best left. Burger King may be  …

  7. Pappas Ranch

    Editor's pick

    West Pasco : 11345 State Road 54, Odessa, 33556

    It's been an interesting road for the veteran restaurateur Louis Pappas, from his family's flagship business in Tarpon Springs years ago, to overseeing a fleet of eponymous fast-casual Mediterranean-Greek spots. He sold the big restaurant in Tarpon in 2002 and at one point oversaw seven Louis Pa …

    Clearwater : 2630 Gulf to Bay Blvd., Clearwater, 33759

  9. Rumba Island Bar & Grill

    Editor's pick

    Clearwater : 1800 Gulf to Bay Blvd., Clearwater, 33765

    The barbecue and seafood restaurant called Hogfish Grill was reinvented as a lively Caribbean joint with well-conceived food and reasonable prices.

  10. Mr Bones BBQ

    Manatee beaches : 3007 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach, 34217

    The food here is based on it being good to start with. Better not ask for any salt or pepper because the food here is great from the get-go and needs no seasoning. The restaurant itself has a day of the dead decor and is one of the most unique in Tampa Bay.

  11. Holy Hog Barbecue

    Tampa : 3501 N Armenia Ave., Tampa, 33607

    As owner Danny Hernandez explains it, his Cuban family has always had an infatuation with pig, so he decided to take the plunge and do all Southern barbecue, heavy on things porcine.It's a funky place, with lots of taxidermied heads and miscellaneous antique tools (old-timey handsaws next to mou …

  14. Big John's Alabama BBQ

    Tampa : 5707 N 40th St, Tampa, 33610

    Big John's Alabama BBQ closed when the city annexed the family-owned property as part of the $100 million widening of 40th Street. To say that Big John's was beloved is understatement. John A. "Big John" Stephens (6 feet 3 in stock- ing feet) opened Big John's in 1968, and all of Tampa …

  15. Cally's Sticky Bones BBQ

    Editor's pick

    Tampa : 2313 W Linebaugh Ave., Tampa, 33612

    There are plenty of good barbecue places in the Tampa Bay area. But this one in Carrollwood stands out.

    Editor's pick

    South Pinellas beaches : 9000 W Gulf Blvd., Treasure Island, 33706

    It's got ramshackley charm - sunsets, volleyball, kids building sand castles, all accompanied by a set-list of beachy cover-band greatest hits. The picnic tabletops are sticky, it takes a while for a server to notice you've ambled up, and if you overstay (1 1/2 hours maximum for diners) they sug …
