ST. PETERSBURG — The franchise formerly known as Rib City, which has operated for more than 40 years, has rebranded its St. Petersburg location under a new name: Jubilee's BBQ.
The longtime rib joint has had various locations across Florida as well as in other states. But when considering a location and market to enhance, it was evident that the St. Petersburg site was just the place to do it. Owner Paul Peden said the company chose the city "due to the rapid development of this large market," and "an energetic idea met the perfect opportunity at the right time."
Jubilee's offers a menu of barbecued meats, specialized sauces and side dishes such as made-from-scratch baked beans and coleslaw as well collard greens, corn pudding, and macaroni and cheese.
Jubilee's BBQ will also serve locally crafted and family owned 3 Daughters Brewery beer. Jubilee's is open daily for lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Sunday.
