Another old El Cajon establishment that has seen better days. We have dined here many times, but the past couple of trips have soured us on the place. A lot can be said of a restaurant based on parking spots available, and we've noticed over...More

This place feels greasy from the moment you walk in the door. All the flat surfaces fell like old grease, the air reeks of grease, the food is greasy as well. I got food poisoning the one and only time I ate there. Never again!

This is a great restaurant-no the ambiance isn't amazing and it's not romantic...but would you expect that based on the name? No. It's true to it's name-offers a great variety of food. Way more than just barbeque! Although, I'm not usually especially keen on barbeque,...More

This is a great old fashioned diner. The portions are huge and taste just like grandma used to make (maybe even a little better, but don't tell her that). The service is great; they make you feel truly welcome. Bring your appetite!
