Stopped for lunch while visiting with my brother in Southbay. Excellent bbq, sandwich, or ribs they seemed to have it along with a laundry list of whiskey's. It would take a about a year to try each brand.

The pulled pork here is heavenly. The crispy texture and full smokey flavor makes this easily the best bbq in the county. The portion sizes are generous, too. You just can't go wrong here.

Stopped in here with some friends for a quick bite and some beverages. I had the pork ribs with homemade potato salad and one of their craft beers on tap. Great place and friendly service

I went here for take-out after trying another place that is closed (forever). It's a funny little place in a dead part of town after 5 on a weekday. There's an adjacent bar that you enter from another street. I got a combo with 2...More

The building is an old automotive repair shop with old garage doors still there, not very nice place, not much parking. Wanted to give it a try just because I like smoked meats. Well, when you walk in the air is heavy with a smoke...More
