Love me the brisket

Long time prep work makes for a mean brisket. Very tender with just the right amount of seasoning. I love the peanut slaw and cornbread. I have dined at the Cupertino store multiple times, but they are located at numerous locations throughout the Bay Area.

Lovely traditional BBQ food for all of the family at really good prices. Staff were really helpful and happy to explain menu to us. Also really handy for The Juniper which is next door.

I love BBQ. And this is the first decent BBQ in the area. They have nightly specials that are really attractive, and half price burger sales on Saturdays. So I'd have to say I was a regular here… until a change in kitchen staff occurred a few months ago, and each time I go there, I regret it 8 or... More

Casual atmosphere, prompt friendly service, and excellent BBQ. We had pulled pork, cowboy sausage, and tri tip steak. All were outstanding, some of the best bbq we've had!

I always get the baby back ribs. They are tender and moist. I like their corn bread, too. My husband likes the big screen televisions that are usually tuned to a spots channel.

I am going to try the beef, but with Turkey and Pork I've tried, I believe this is the kind of BBQ place where the BBQ comes from having BBQ sauce inundate the food. I do not believe the authentic smoking is done; it does not appear to have strong smoking aroma around this restaurant. So sadly, this only gets... More

An easy and quick place to eat with good sized portions and good quality food. Lots of choice, unlimited refills available on soft drinks and plenty of options in side dishes. Basically a fast food restaurant with frills but good at what it is, reliable and as I say - if you can't be bothered to go to a full... More

The brisket and ribs were flavorful, but the sausage was a little lacking and could have been store-bought.

My husband and I went there for dinner. We ordered 1 regular meal: ribs and 2 sides. Then I ordered 2 small plates, which both came with a side. They offered me a water cup and I took it. I am not a fan of soda. I am not a fan of cornbread, but O M G, this was the... More
