This a great place for all things BBQ. My husband had the 2 meat plate. Enough food to fill him up and take some home for later. The sauce is tangy but not sharp like some other sauces we have tried. I had the BBLT. A huge amount of brisket, bacon, lettuce, tomato on a roll. Probably not the most... More

I recently had one of their pulled chicken sandwiches and it was delicious. Also, can't resist their hushpuppies. Flavors are wonderful.

Very pleased with the food and customer service. My partner and I came here after visiting Yosemite National Park. After a long hike, we both had a taste for some good BBQ. We used yelp to find this place, and we're happy we did. We both got the tri tip sandwich. It was better than I expected, and the prices... More

Kind of expensive but this place is charming. The kids liked the scenery and the food was good, not great. Probably won't top by again. Too expensive. $12 for a sandwich.

I brought home enough food for lunch for two from my dinner leftovers! Very good potato salad, coleslaw, garlic bread. Tried both the brisket & pulled pork. Excellent! Small but good selection of beer. Not so much on the wine side. But we will go again.

This restaurant is now called Alice's Cookhouse. Our whole family greatly enjoyed our meal. BBQ was excellent! Daughter had beef brisket, husband had pulled pork and I had the grilled chicken sandwich. All were very good!! If you like garlic, I HIGHLY recommend the garlic fries!!

It's now Alice not Todd's. Went here tonight for dinner. Let me start by saying I'm from the south and have never had western BBQ before. Well yuck... I didn't like it. I didn't like the BBQ sauce, I didn't like the ketchup, I didn't like the cole slaw or the "garlic bread". Fries were good but had to eat... More

While this was Todd's Barbeque he had really let the place get run down and it was quickly becoming the place to avoid, rather than eat at. Todd has now left the building and his wife Alice has taken over and what a difference! The place is clean (all the time Todd owned it I never knew the floor tile... More

this place used to have a nice amount of good food however the last time i went we were disgusted and walked out. it was dirty and the bathroom was so gross and falling down actually. I will never go her again unless the rumor i hear is true about someone buying it and changing it to a new place
