I've been there a number of times now, and the food is consistently good. Good ambience in the dining area, friendly and helpful staff. Portions are "Texas style", which means I usually can't finish, and take food home!

I got the BBQ fries with brisket. The fries and brisket were delicious. I split it with my friend. With drinks and fries we spent $17. They have happy hour specials (3-6) and $5 off if you spend $30 coupons.

The bread, beans, corn, brisket, and sauce all seemed low rent...just like the restaurant itself - which had zero atmosphere unless the owners were trying for strip-mall-BBQ-place. I liked the pork shoulder, though. I'm truly flummoxed at all the great reviews.

Big portions and definitely worth the price. The decor is rustic and the food is good. Relatively big portions so brace yourselves before coming here.

Found a new place to have a great meal! The location is in a strip mall but you don't want to miss this place. Their brisket is wonderful! Hearty servings of brisket with two sides. Corn on the cob,potato salad, beans were some the sides we chose. Plates came with garlic toast and a drink. Lunch specials are reasonable. While... More

Being a Texan... I had to find a real BBQ Joint when I moved to San Diego. Well I have found it! Brisket cooked the right way. Seasoned perfectly, slow cooked on a wood fired pit. I always choose the brisket, but the smoked chicken is the best I've found. The pork ribs have been perfected too. You will not... More

This BBQ place has been here for several years but I had never tried it until recently. It is located in a strip mall on Miramar road near I-805. There are several tables and televisions and you have to order at the counter. They have lots of choices on the menu and beer and wine as well as soft drinks... More

Small little joint in a strip mall type area, if you are not careful will pass by. Typically go there for lunch. All items I ever has got are very good. Typically get one of the meat plate specials. Pork is very good. Cole slaw is nice and refreshing as well. Very friend and polite, clean place. Enjoy eating there... More

We went out to lunch here prior to catching our flight back home. First thing I noticed was the smell of BBQ getting out of the car. Daughter had a pulled pork sandwich, my wife had tips, and I had beef ribs. Sandwich was very good, tips were a little burnt, but my beef ribs were great. Serving size was... More
