Jabo's BBQ & Seafood Food Trailers

Welcome to Jabo's BBQ & Seafood

Jabo's BBQ & Seafood specializes in hand-crafted slow smoked barbecue. We use premium meats that are slow smoked in our custom built offset wood smoker. Great barbecue takes time, but we know it's worth every minute. We smoke our meats using a blend of Oak, Cherry, and Pecan woods for just the right flavor profile that keeps you wanting more every time. But, we're not just mouthwatering BBQ. We also dish out amazing seafood from fresh live or steamed blue crab, shrimp, grouper sandwiches, and fried conch to Cajun crawfish, Louisiana fried or stuffed shrimp to Louisiana boudin and more mouthwatering Cajun and Creole Cuisine.

If you've never been to Jabo's BBQ & Seafood we look forward to meeting you, and we're sure we'll be seeing you again real soon, and if you have been here before, it'll be great seeing you again as always. If you just have to have great barbecue or seafood, Jabo's BBQ & Seafood is the place to be.

Two Food Trailers ♦ Two Great Menus

Gray Food Trailer

The food trailer that started it all. We began offering great BBQ, Seafood, and Sandwiches from the gray trailer. Then added live blue crab to the menu. Today, Jabo's gray trailer still serves up some of the best barbecue in Spring Hill, awesome sandwiches, such as our mouth watering Philly Cheesesteaks, and seafood selections, which include our popular smoked mullet, fried or grilled grouper sandwiches, and much much more. However, we wanted to give our growing family an even larger menu selection. Introducing the Red Food Trailer...

Red Food Trailer

While Jabo's still serves up the same awesome food everyone expects from the gray trailer, we felt the need to expand to a second trailer and a new menu full of authentic Louisiana Cajun Creole Cuisine. From live or boiled Cajun Crawfish to House Specialties including Mom's famous Gumbo and Louisiana Boudin, which we make fresh daily, we now serve up authentic Cajun and Creole Cuisine from the Red Trailer. 

We're More Than Just Great Barbecue!

What Our Customers Say
About Jabo's BBQ & Seafood

  • Got live Blue Crabs from Jabo’s to take home to steam. Crabs turned out great. Were very nice size and at $24 a dozen could not beat the price. He puts all crabs in your cooler in front of you assuring you have no dead crabs. Will definitely be returning to make future purchases of crabs and other items off his menu.

  • We met JABO today for the first time today. I thought it was the best baby back ribs and blue crabs, I've had in the 33 years that I'm living in Florida. I will be a weekly customer. We will try everything that is on the menu. Thank you JABO...see u soon!

  • By far the best Philly cheesesteak I have ever had! Can’t wait to try some of his bbq. The owner was great. We bought some grass fed beef too. We will be back to support this local business! Yum!

  • My husband and I went there yesterday and got the double smoked meat plate and fried shrimp plate, everything was absolutely delicious. Jabo was very courteous and professional we arrived 15-20 mins prior to closing and he still took care of us and we received hot/fresh food. We're new to this area and I can honestly say this is definitely going to be one of our go to spots!

  • Best crabs. Great smoked flavor on meats. Macaroni & cheese is very good. My favorite side is Collard Greens...he sure puts his foot in it..lol. Best BBQ in all Hernando and Pasco County. Way better than Sonny's BBQ...way better and prices are worth it for the amount of food & it is fresh and homemade.

  • After reading so many great reviews on our vacation, I drove a couple of towns over to give it a try. It has the food truck set up, which was okay with me since some of the tastiest food I've had has been from food trucks. I ordered my husband the rib plate, which came with 2 sides for $12. You really can't beat the price and the food smelled so good. I don't eat ribs but the smoky smell had me tempted. I ordered the blue crabs, which are sold by the dozen for $24. There were several people ordering the crabs so I knew then that they would have some decent weight to them or I wouldn't have seen so many customers during my short visit. The food was everything we expected and more. Not only was the food great but the service was outstanding!

  • Oh my lord the food is awesome the gator nuggets are to die for you have to come try the food here!

  • My husband, son, and I stopped here for lunch today while vacationing in the area. Jabo was super friendly. My husband and son ordered catfish and flounder plates and said it was some of the best fish they’d had. I ordered the beef brisket and man was it amazing! We love to dine at local restaurants while on vacation and like to try different things so we never eat at the same restaurant twice. This time, though, we’ll be returning for another lunch before our vacation is over!
