BBQ Joint, Excellent Value

Let's be clear: this is a basic BBQ joint. The food is cooked over oak wood in the California Central Coast style. It is not "corporate BBQ" like Chris & Pitts and not "yuppie BBQ" like Wood Ranch. We recommend the Tri-tip sandwich, garlic fries and Ranch beans. The service is attentive and the... read more

Food selection was good and the items we chose tasted great! Beer selection and service were also very good. Overall, one of the better dining experiences during our trip.

My wife and I ate here on Monday night and took advantage of their great dinner special on Monday evenings. The food was delicious, service was fast and it was a good bargain. The BBQ is great. With the special you get two entrees (we had tri tip and prime rib), two sides each (lots to choose from - the... More

My husband and daughter love Barbecue, so we decided to go to this restaurant. The atmosphere is great and the waitresses are really friendly and attentive. My husband ordered ribs, my daughter ordered a tritip sandwich, and my son and myself ordered steak tacos. Even though the food was delicious, the portions were very small for the price. Our steak...

After a day of shopping in the Premium Outlets, we wanted a good relaxing meal. Just down the road (south on 101) is Ottavios Italian Restaurant, but most often that place is packed. A block down, we saw Bandits Grill & Bar, so figured, why not some BBQ? The restaurant is western rustic, but nice. Service was fantastic; drink refills... More

This place has that Western feel to it. While their food is pretty much average, the atmosphere and friendly people is where it's at when you want beef.

This place was recommended by locals when I recently was in town on business. I'm so glad they did. Great food and service. Only problem was they apparently don't offer bread unless you ask for it. So if you want it, ...

this place is always packed. however, I like the idea where you can grab peanuts from a big barrel...take it to your table....and you can just basically dump the empty shells on the floor. the place can get slow....but if you are looking for a fine steak place, go to woodranch instead.
