>Update: Jazzy’s BBQ

>Friday, I went back to Jazzy’s. I wanted to try some new things and see they were. I know I got some crap for disliking their Mac N’ Cheese, but I stand by that. It’s not something I would serve in my house.

Moving on to the new things, this time I got ribs, chicken, collard greens, corn bread, and potato salad. I didn’t have the potato salad or the chicken before. The chicken was tender and juicy with a nice coating of barbecue sauce. I thought it was pretty good.

I had a few thoughts about the potato salad. First off, from a flavor perspective it tasted as it should. I liked it. I was surprised, pleasantly, that they put hard boiled eggs in it. I love eggs in my potato salad. I thought it was a little on the runny side. The upshot of that is that if you are like me and generally unable to finish a meal when you come back to it later it’s still going to be moist and delicious.

Speaking of moist, get a load of their corn bread. I know I said I loved it before, but it’s worth saying again. I love it. It doesn’t have corn in it like my mother’s, but it’s still incredibly moist.

I definitely suggest trying Jazzy’s. Just because I don’t like one thing they make doesn’t mean that I hate the restaurant. I reserve that for restaurants that don’t cook their own food and still manage to suck.

>A few weeks ago, a friend of mine suggested that we go to Jazzy’s BBQ for lunch. I decided to try it since I’ve heard so much about it. I love food, so any opportunity to expand my horizons is welcomed.

What you see here, from left to right, is Corn Bread, BBQ sauce, Sweet Potato Pie, Collard Greens, Macaroni and Cheese, and BBQ Ribs.

I’ll start at the top and go item by item:

Corn Bread – Amazing. I loved it. It wasn’t too sweet or dry. It was moist and blissful cornbread perfection.

BBQ Sauce – Good Stuff.

Sweet Potato Pie – It’s the most amazing thing I think I have ever eaten. Seriously. This size pictured is the small and I sincerely wished I had sprung for the large. The pie crust is sweet and the filling and smooth and perfect.

Collard Greens – Good enough for my kitchen and good enough for my grandma.

Macaroni and Cheese – The dark spot in this otherwise delicious meal. It seems that they use chunks of bread in it. It’s absolutely awful and flavorless. I’m not sure how this passes their test, because everything else is so full of flavor. It wasn’t a lack of salt. It was a lack of flavor altogether.

The Ribs – The Ribs were very good. Even if you didn’t douse them in BBQ sauce, they were delicious and not at all dry.

The Bottom Line: Try Jazzy’s but skip the Mac N’ Cheese.

Jazzy’s is located at 5703 W Waters Avenue, Tampa, FL 33634. You can call for pick up at (813) 243-8872.
