    Description

    The history of Big Johns Barbecue
    WE BE SMOKIN'!!

    In 1968 the late Rev. John A. “Big John” Stephens opened Big John's Alabama Barbeque in East Tampa, Florida on 40th Street North. “Big John”, came to Tampa from Eufaula, Alabama. He with his family in tow came to the area with goals of being an entrepreneur but most importantly a man of God. He obtained and exceeded that goal and “Big John’s” is still in existence today, 42 years later. Big John ran the business for some 25 years until his demise in 1994. His passing and his legacy was surmountable to many in the Bay Area. His wife and children continue his legacy by providing good food, great customer service and southern hospitality. He was recognized and awarded for his contributions to the community by the Tampa Tribune and other media outlets. His son Fred Stephens, continues the tradition and keeps the business and barbeque going. Big John’s Barbeque is known for its open pit style barbequing and has continued this technique for over 40 years. The wife of Rev. Stephens, Mrs. Sallie Stephens, along with her children, recently celebrated their Grand Re-Opening in January 2010!
