    Usually I’m on a boat, but every now and then I roll up on land. Today’s land side adventures took us to The Brisket Shoppe.
    For those who know me, know I am not afraid to eat and eat well. The Brisket
    … More Shoppe did not disappoint. I got the moist brisket and it basically melted in your mouth, with an amazing release of flavors.
    The ribs where so on point, that I got and extra rack to go for tomorrow’s boating adventures. You know BBQ and Boats, my life.
    The corn salad, the brisket queso, and the beauty in the picture, with her favorite, brisket tacos. All this combined made for an awesome lunch date.
    So don’t miss out get by The Brisket Shoppe for some great food.
    All the Best,

    Been trying to get to the place. Sorry it took me so long. Great brisket and collard greens. Not only was the food out of this world. But the staff was beyond friendly.
    They also have cool spices and equipment
    … More for sale.
    The butcher shop inside is fantastic
    Don’t wait, go now
    This becoming an addiction! I’ve drive 20 miles each way just to get this brisket!
    It’s a must try

    My family and I have been in competition BBQ for over 20 years as Pitmasters and now Kansas City Barbecue Society Judges. I can honestly say the Brisket was amazing. Tender and full of flavor. The Nachos … More were a great addition. The Cheese Sauce for the Nachos was awesome and not your typical Mexican style sauce with a nice sharp finish. Mac and Cheese was to die for. Can't say enough about the Greens. Tender and just enough spice. Sausage was also delicious. Perfect snap from a true natural casing. Danny Hernandez and his team are doing it right. Always fresh. No shortcuts. From the moment you pull in you can smell the goodness going on. Very friendly staff and if you're looking for a Big Green Egg or grill, the prices can't be beat. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

    Despite what many could consider quirky hours (and days) of operation, the Brisket Shoppe is a jewel in south Tampa. The fact that they have no use for a can opener, a microwave nor a freezer speaks volumes. … More Freshness: to be sure, but down home flavor abounds as well. Treat yourself to this epic barbeque emporium. Give your taste buds an early birthday present.

    Wish they’re open everyday and have longer business hours lol. So addicting, if I don’t stop myself from getting brisket they’re gonna make me more broke. 😂 The brisket = chef’s kiss; I like the jalapeño … More cheddar sausage too!! People there are friendly and nice, 101% would recommend. 👌🏻
    P.S.
    They gave me free smoked turkey to try, it’s not on their menu yet and it’s good too. Love them!!

    Stopped here on a whim while on vacation and I'm so glad I did. Lalo's Tacos and the nachos are both amazing, and the people were very nice. I really wish they had a place in Orlando, I'd … More probably stop by every week!

    Melt in your mouth brisket. The sides were amazing, the beans have a lot of meat in them, the Mac is divine. Try the nachos for a sharable treat. Definitely coming back.

    This place is awesome. The Brisket and Sausage today were great. The jalapeño cheddar sausage link was on-point. You can also buy BBQ seasonings, grills, pellet smokers, etc. Great place and glad it’s … More in South Tampa. Tampa is becoming a pretty great BBQ town.

    This is the best new place in town. Food is awesome and the owner/staff are even better. Going to become neighborhood regulars here quick.

    Growing up in Texas I have had a lot of great brisket. The Brisket Shoppe is as good as it gets! You will not find any brisket in Florida that is as what they serve here! Simply mouth watering and I … More can't wait to get more!
  • Avatar Michael M ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    Best brisket I've had in Tampa.
    I order brisket whenever I see it on the menu and was happy when I saw this place open. Not many places outside of Texas do brisket right but this place does. I
    … More would highly recommend coming here. In the picture is a 1/2 pound.
