I've eaten there many times over the years and it's always been good. The place has been there so long that the walls have taken on that smoky patina that adds to the flavor of the meat. Not much of a sit down restaurant, but they do a great take out business. Pacific Grove is not famous for BBQ, but... More

This is some of the tastiest BBQ you will find. It is simple and straight forward. It serves locals and touring PGA pros. Seating is limited. You will not regret stopping in.

The thought of drive thru BBQ lured us in. Got the 3 meat combo with two sides. Chicken and ribs were great - brisket wasn't my style. The sides were awesome - the coleslaw was nice and light and the Mac salad was fresh.

We drop by LCH for take-out whenever we're in the mood for a quick BBQ dinner. Although the meats are not slow smoked, they're all cooked outside in a wood fired bbq and kept hot in an open spit. The exterior/interior is a little shabby but the LCH offers good value.

This little place was quite the surprise; not much for eating in so you may want to do carry-out. Friendly staff, but the chicken/ribs is what you come for; taken fresh off of the spit. Though pricey for chicken you'll find it well worth it.

This restaurant is filled with surprises. Close to the beach, I wouldn't normally think there would be a good BBQ place, but this place has all the meat you would like: chicken, pork/beef ribs, brisket, etc. Their cornbread is pretty good, and their garlic bread is awesome too. The owner is an older gentleman and he is very nice and... More

We drove past this place and initial thoughts were to not stop. One of our rules while on vacation is to not eat at franchise locations. We like to taste the area and what the locals make. Such was the case with Little Chicken House. We were attracted by the BBQ smoker out front and the fact that it was... More

The chickens are on a huge rotating grill. I usually order to go. Mashed potatoes with gravy and cole slaw. Not to be duplicated. The flavor is wonderful!

I love everything these folks serve and the way they serve it. All restaurants should be like this place. You go in and sit at a small counter. The rotisserie is directly in front of you and you choose your dish, chicken or ribs usually. The sides are pre-packaged and the food outstanding. This is a one of a kind... More

These guys do an oak smoke BBQ. Checked this out as a local friend said ribs were amazing. So bottom line: good meat/BBQ but they need to work on nuancing the sauce - or having some heat in the sauce. Also sides were homemade yet one-night & unseasoned. Nice guys. Nice large portions of meat but the presentation on white... More
