Ok we live in Lithia and love this place. They always give decent size portions and have yummy sauces. We get the fries covered with pork, cheese, jalepenos and sauce! Um not the healthiest but yum!!

This place is a (permanent) food truck but serves outstanding BBQ with homemade sauces. I was disappointed in the burrito as it was rather small for $9 but the 2 meat plate with 2 sides was well worth it which is why this place got...a '5'. The food was tasty and portions were generous. I went here after a MTB ride at Alafia. I would come here again if I were in the area.More

Great food! The collard greens are out of this world! The chickens running around outside are a riot!

The "Best" If you are looking for anything fancy, keep driving. But SJ has the best backyard BBQ. Music is also awesome!!!

We tried it for the first time, and really like it. The pulled pork sandwich and brisket are very good. The Mac and cheese was alright.

Want great local BBQ, sit at a piicnic table next to the parking lot where you can smell the smoke ? Stop at Smokin Joe's on RT 39. No pretenses, just good cookin' in a relaxed rural setting. Reasonably priced, dog friendly, and Florida AC...when the breeze blows. Favorite order is the pork dinner with two sides - get the slaw and potato salad and a big cup of lemonade.More
