First Choice Southern Bar-B-Que
For those in the know about how real southern barbecue should taste, a visit to First Choice Southern Bar-B-Que is in order. This restaurant has it all, from the perfectly smoked turkey and chicken to juicy, tender pulled pork, beef and slabs of ribs that will have you drooling. Side dishes are all homemade, including the spicy macaroni salad laced with jalepeno peppers, saucy baked beans and creamy potato salad. Add an order of crispy fritters and a glass of exceptional ice tea to complete the meal. First Choice is a popular restaurant, but service is fast and friendly. Eat in or order ahead for pick-up. - Vickie Ferguson
This place exploded my soul and ravaged my aura. Easily one of the best places i've ever eaten. Everything is good. Make sure you get that macaroni side. It has a nice spice to it. Get that medicine in you. Anything barbequed tastes phantasmagorical and all the sides go perfectly with it. I'd be there right now only I forgot its Sunday.
Don't go there on a restaurant.com coupon, they don't accept them. I went there because I had a coupon, and when I got there they would not accept it. We ate there anyway, and the food was ok, but nothing exceptional. Definitely not worth the price we paid.
It is probably the best BBQ in Brandon, but the last 2 times I ate there, the staff behind the counter was very cold and rude. I had done nothing but place an order, so I have no idea why I got such a cold response. Makes you wonder...
This is definitely the place to go if you like bar-b-que. The line is always out the door so get there early if you go for lunch. There isn't really traditional restaurant service, you wait in line, tell the guy what you want, then take it yourself to a table. As far as the food is concerned, you can't go wrong with anything you choose. I'd say the most popular is the pulled pork dinner. The sides are always first rate as well. Baked beans are sweet and the macaroni salad is spicy. They have real french fries and I'd bet you couldn�t find better collard greens anywhere.
Some of the best BBQ there is in the Tampa bay area. Love the rythmic choping. Finger licking good. :) Some of the best BBQ sauce there is...not sure what the other person is talking about. If you want some spice try the macaroni salad..wow that has a kick.
First Choice was recommended to me 3 years ago. I thought we had good BBQ in Chicago until I visited this place. Since then, every winter I have gone as much as 80 miles out of my way to eat here. I leaned from the owner all the recipes were obtained from family members and they are OUTSTANDING! The place is hard to find in the corner of a shopping center but it is worth the effort to locate. You will NOT be disappointed.
I do not think I could ever go to a place who has the BEST southern BBQ ... wow. The service was great, the food was awesome and man ... did I already food was great cause if I didn't .. Let me say it. The food was SO GOOD.
