It's picnic time. – The Scene
Kojak's real picnic-table atmosphere finds its patrons ordering racks of ribs, barbeque roast beef, pork, country sausage and chicken. Kojak's combination dinner lets you build a custom barbeque platter of any three meats.
Popular picnic fare sides, pretty close to homemade, feature cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans, macaroni salad andwhat would a barbeque be without itcorn on the cob. If there's room left, try one of the freshly prepared desserts, such as the apple cake with vanilla ice cream, chocolate cake or pecan pie. Just don't forget to wipe the sauce off your chin on the way out.
I lived in Tampa for a number of years, and going to Kojaks was always a treat. We could bring our kids there and eat out on the front porch, it was always like visiting friends. The staff was wonderful and the bbq was the best ever! And we never had to wait! Kojaks BBQ is what I miss most about living in Tampa!
Good Grub – Ribs are good, chicken is a bit scrawny that they serve though. The parsley potatos are the best. Nice atmosphere. Their rib sauce is pretty good too. a bit pricy though.
Bar-B-Que Heaven – Kojak's is hands down the best in Bar-b-Que. The service is prompt and the ribs are unmatched in the Tampa Bay area. I've eaten at all of the bar-b-que restaurants on the "best of" list and nothing matches Kojac's for good ribs and chicken. The pork ribs are full of juicy, tender meat, and the side dishes are outstanding. I've eaten at Kojak's many times and haven't once had bad ribs. The kids also love the chicken and baked beans. The apple cake a la mode is absolutely mouth watering!
Not bad but... – The place is just OK. The "homeyness" goes a little too far. Don't go there if it has recently rained. The unpaved parking will suck in your car and the shoes off your feet! My food was cold, but good and the wait staff wasn't very friendly on my visit. Better places are around.
