We just arrived to San Fran and searched for a quick lunch with decent reviews. This place came up so we decided to give them a try. HOLY CRAP was it good! First off, the guy at the counter was so incredibly welcoming and his customer service was an experience in itself. He made recommendations and even gave us free... More

Stopped here for lunch ( tried for diner the prior day yet closed early because they sold out early) big portions - we had ribs and the pull pork - both outstanding with an assortment of great sides ( with the exception of the Mac n cheese which was slightly on the mushy side). You want great BBQ then you... More

Excellent food! Perfect location! Got enough food to feed a family of 7 and pleased everyone! Must go! Don't be discouraged by the line, it moves quickly and well worth the wait!

The philly cheese sandwich was pretty much on point. It was fun getting lined up at 11:30 and talking to some locals who said this was THE spot for bbq. The young girl at the front was great and the sandwich was just what the dr ordered after a hike in the hills. I almost needed a nap from the... More

I brought my brother here and he Inked everything in the menu. They have the best meats ever. From brisket to links all made Fresh on site and taste really really good. Mac and cheese is awsome and the Ribs too.

We had the ribs, pulled pork and hot links. The ribs were as good as I've had. The hot links were HOT but great texture and flavor just keep eating... Sauce was very good. Sides were nothing to write home about.

So I love this place and only wish that they had more consistent amounts of food. The food is always great, but you have to make sure you get there at the right time or you might not get any food. I had them make 15 racks for a big party that I had and people raved about the ribs... More

I had driven by this joint many times and finally stopped-in on my way back from SFO. It was a WOW! The ribs were fantastic: meaty, smokey and with the right amount of char. The beans, slaw and mushrooms were equally tasty. Note that there is frequently a line (that moves quickly) and when they sell-out for the day that... More
