We lived in St. Pete until 1992 and had a favorite barbecue place on or just off of Park Street in Pinellas Park. Our kids were young and we could get food that pleased them, enjoy very good barbecue chicken, even get a beer. I don't remember the name. But I was back in the area last year and could not find it, leaving me to believe that it had closed. Since I'm going back for a short visit, I thought I'd ask Chowhound posters: Do you have any idea of the place I'm talking about? I don't think it was Sonny's but it had a similar look. Maybe I'm just confused and it really was Sonny's.
While I'm there, I hope to stop in some of my other old haunts, including Ringside Cafe; the pizza/pasta place on Central Avenue where it ends at Treasure Island (it used to have great shrimp pizza); Crabby Bill's (sure it's touristy, but I remember if fondly). I know they're still around.
