Great tri tip sandwich

They are known for their tri tip sandwiches. Always good but the inside of the restaurant itself is disgusting, tired and on serious need of a remodel. I order take out because it is very uncomfortable to eat in there.

I have not been here is several years. Used to go here before we moved and get a pound of the tri tip meat and make sandwiches as we wanted them at home. The quality of the meat (sandwich) was Very Good. The service here was Excellent. The price (around $9 for a small tri tip sandwich) is a little... More

Once in a while we'll have one of the sandwiches offered - usually beef or pork - and they're excellent and very large and will definitely fill you up. About once a month we get a whole rack of ribs to go - the beef is good, but does not have a whole lot of meat. The pork is out... More

Best BBQ I've found outside Arthur Bryant's in Kansas City, MO. You have to tear the meat off the bone - a good thing - versus seeing it drop off like the ribs were boiled. One of a very limited group of BBQ houses that do beef ribs. And their sauce is just spicy enough for me. Prefer the location... More

Down home BBQ diner. Large entrée portions with generous side servings, but a bit pricey.. Bring your appetite.

The coleslaw was crisp, cold, and uninspired, the corn-chowder too thick but flavorful and made well. The garlic bread was made with a little too far in advance. But the star of the meal, the ribs and sauce...just yummy. Very homey place. you can go in your jeans, talk relax and get sauce on your shirt in a family-friendly atmosphere!... More

I was with my daughter-in-law, she ordered the small pulled pork sandwich with potato wedges. The roll was toasted quite nicely and the pulled pork came in a separate container. You go up to the condiment bar and dress it with anything you like; pickles, onions, lettuce, relish, mayo mustard catsup, etc...also there is a very large pot with warm... More
