The two of us shared the combo-for-2 plate and had plenty to take home. Pork brisket, sausage, shoulder and ribs were the cuts included in the combo plate. The meats were done to perfection. I wasn't crazy about the sausage. You could tell it had...More

This a a very casual restaurant located in Boyes Hot Springs, just a couple of miles North of the City of Sonoma. Incredibly good smoked meats and one of the best burgers in the area. Wonderful quality overall.

My husband and I spent the day at multiple wineries, and after a fancy dinner the night before, we were feeling more like barbecue. After spying this place while out on a bike ride close to the Fairmont (where we were staying), we knew it...More

Cochon Volant BBQ Smoke House serves classic American barbecue—ribs, brisket, pork shoulder, chicken and more—smoked over almond wood and presented Texas-style—sliced to order, priced by the pound and served on a butcher paper-lined tray. Sandwiches, sides, Larman’s signature “Killer” fries and “Big Ass” salads round out the menu, which should be familiar to Cochon Volant fans and those whose memories go back to Rob’s Rib Shack in the Sonoma Valley.
