Close as it comes in San Diego to West Texas style BBQ – This place looks like the BBQ joints I frequented as a child in West Texas. The beef, which is pretty much all I ever order, is smoked and served with the sauce on the side, as a proper BBQ should be. The main difference is that they use oak wood to smoke, not mesquite, so the flavor is not the same, but it's darned good beef! The beans are more yankee-style baked beans and not pintos, as you'd expect with BBQ, but the coleslaw is tasty. The portions are generous, they have specials from time to time, and it's a great value for the money. I have had the hotlinks (good), the chicken (very nice) and the ham (also good). On Fridays (I think) they have a stew like what mom used to make, but run out of it fast. Can't say enough good about this place - they also give discounts to seniors. Enjoy!

Editorial Review – Local BBQ chain attracts families and grill masters looking for tangy, thin sauce, plus chicken, ribs, pork and all the sides.

Had Better – Like most BBQ joints there is nothing fancy about the decor here, after all good barbecue is about the food, not the restaurant and this place is no exception to that rule. Unfortunately that?s about where the ?good barbeque? experience ends. It was a Sunday afternoon and the restaurant was not crowded at all (should have been a clue). My wife ordered Ham with fries; I had the daily special ? pulled pork sandwich with fries and beans. My wife?s ham was completely flavorless and her fries were woefully under cooked, as were mine. My sandwich was average, nothing special. Just pork on a plain hamburger bun (I think it?s hard to mess up pull pork). The beans were tasty, I will have to admit, I have had a lot of bad beans at BBQ joints, and these were pretty good. The most interesting thing is the sauce itself; it is on the watery side which is fine, I don?t get caught up in the consistence of my sauce as long as it?s good. It has a very distinct spice flavor, Cloves I think, which kept my interest and helped when eating the fries. Guess we should have asked for extra to drown the ham in. Over all, the sauce alone is not enough to make me stop here again. Sorry..
