Good home style meals. Great ham, Beef and Pork ribs, chicken. Sides are mac salad or cole slaw. Clean, including bathrooms. Nice staff, friendly. One of my favorites in San Diego. Try the beef ribs, they are really good.

This is my family's BBQ place. It probably isn't the most authentic BBQ, but it is delicious and thus my favorite
