Woven Roots, (an incredible reggae band), was booked there and that was the reason we went. The friendly staff, the quality of the food, and the owner of the venue, (Richard), made for a perfect evening. Very friendly place that we will come back to.

Oh my, the pulled pork sandwich is amazing! Stacked meat with scrumptious coleslaw & the sauce is delicious! Usually go for this but have also tried their burgers which are also fantastic! Hidden secret in Nipomo!

Amazing food at decent prices. Order the small burgers and you will be amazed at the size of them. The loaded fries with tri-tip were amazing! Bring the family and this is a must road-side bbq off the 101 South.

I was SO looking forward to my order - onion rings ($5.25!) and The Amazing Bacon ($8.95!) The food was tasty but overall it was a joke! $5.25 for 6 onion rings!! PLUS $0.50 for Ranch Dressing. Seriously? TOTALLY ridiculous. And the sandwich is really...More
