A great end to the day with my best friend!

I am here in San Diego on business all week and happened to spot this place this morning on my way to an appointment. The "Dogs Welcome" sign caught my eye immediately so I figured, how can I not check it out. My dog travels with me everywhere so I picked him up at the hotel after my day of... read more

We had pulled pork sandwiches and ribs. The meat falls right off the bones. The toasted buns for the sandwiches were perfect. Next time I would only get a 1/2 sandwich with a side bc a full sandwich was a lot. They put crushed cheez-it's on the macaroni....which was weird. Their toilet paper and paper towels were what you'd expect... More

Went here for the first time a few weeks ago and I can't really complain. The staff was very friendly and the place was really cute with it's cowboy décor. There's even an outside patio that is dog friendly and also provided is a doggy door so the furry friends don't have to cut through inside the restaurant. I ordered... More

The food here was good. No WOW factor, and small selection for kids. BUT the waitress was worth the meal. Smiling, cute and everything done that you enjoy every second there.

This is by far our families favorite BBQ place. Has indoor and outdoor seating. Dogs are allowed on the patio seating area and they provide bowl of water and beef bones for the dogs for free. Brisket and Pulled Pork sandwiches at lunch are great. I love the Beef Ribs as well. They have 3 BBQ sauces that are wonderful.... More

This place is fantastic on all levels. First, come for the food. We ordered the sampler for our family of four and it came with massive lean beef ribs, pork ribs, a barbecue half chicken and a slice of barbecued salmon. The cornbread side is one of the best. Everything was perfectly cooked and exploding with flavor and it was... More

We were looking for a quick lunh yesterday, my wife asked if I remembered the BBQ place we had driven by a few weeks ago, on Morena Boulevard. I asked her to direct me to it, we found the place, Bull's Somkin' BBQ. Right across the street from Armstrong Nursery. Walked in, got a real nice welcome from the waiter... More

Was recommended by some San Diego relatives and it was a pleasant surprise in in a town not known for great BBQ. The owner graciously allowed us to try several different meat dishes and and sides as we had a hard time deciding what we wanted. The beef ribs and brisket were incredibly tender and tasty, and the sauces provided... More
