A popular St. Pete food truck is finally ready to once again serve its prized barbecue and Southern comfort food.

Red's BBQ Truck  reopens today, Jan. 12 at 3405 34th St. N from 11a.m.-6 p.m.—and will operate with those same hours every Thursday-Saturday.

Brothers Joshua and Christian Jackson started their food truck and catering business back in 2018, but its been out of commission since April 2022 so the restaurateurs  could focus on their newly-opened Roam Steakhouse and Bar.
The menu changes often, but Red’s BBQ Truck is known for slow-smoked meats and loaded dinner platters. Other popular menu items include candied fried chicken, smoked lamb chops, St. Louis-style ribs, pulled pork and Cajun grilled shrimp. Common side dishes like mac and cheese, collard greens and dirty rice round out its Southern and Creole-themed menu, while its older brother, Roam, boasts a menu of steaks, chargrilled oysters, pastas and rotating dinner specials.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the food truck is named after the brother’s father Red, who once ran a restaurant in Baton Rouge.
