Great stop for a simple, but great Tri Tip Sand. I get the bbq sauce on the side, as the normal portion makes the sandwich a little sloppy.

Stopped in for lunch after our day of wineries. Paid $28 for two of us. My BF got ribs and two side of baked beans. It comes with sides none of which I eat, still had to pay for them though even though I never received them. You have your choice of macaroni salad, pasta salad that kind of picnic... More

Hours of drinking led to hunger so afterwards we headed to Buster's Southern BBQ for some well, BBQ. We got the works; ribs, pulled pork, tri-tip, mac and cheese, coleslaw and cornbread. The corn was moist and very good but way too sweet and the food as a whole was pretty cold.

We walked here for lunch from our hotel. For $20, two of us had a delicious lunch. You get to choose two meats and two sides. We had the pulled pork and sliced pork. Portions were generous and the sauce was excellent. Medium lemonade for $4.50 was overpriced. Indoor and outdoor dining options.

This restaurant was located right next to B & B we stayed at. It was delicious and affordable. Make sure to try apple beer and double make sure to see if you received the right sauce. The spicy sauce was killing me and they gave me the spicy sauce by mistake when I asked for a mild sauce.

Stopped here with friends. This is a free standing BBQ place. Counter service and the food is wonderful. The price is moderate...you really get your monies worth. Sit at one of the picnic tables and enjoy the California weather.

Good pulled pork sandwich! You can opt for the mild or the hot habenero bbq sauce on top (we got the mild with a small splash of the hot). The only downer is that if you're there on a busy weekend the tiny parking lot gets full pretty quick.

Good BBQ beef, pork, and chicken - even beef and pork ribs. Nothing special for eating area (indoors or outdoors) but good food.

We were driving through and saw the BBQ sign and thought heck yeh. Well we should have kept going and found something else to eat. The ribs had little to no meat on the bones. Portion size was small for the price. I'm sure you can find better, less expensive food somewhere around here. I didn't care for the sauce,... More

If you are near Calistoga, this place is a must! Plus it is one of the view restaurants in the area which is kind to your pocketbook. Great BBQ for a very reasonable price.
