As expected, the kids didn't eat much of their ribs. We loved ours. The potato salad was just so so. It was very crowded and the service was lacking. They were out of silverware (knives) and the waitress practically threw a handful of plastic knives at me. Corn muffins were pretty good.

Stopped here for a lunch break on our road trip. I love pulled pork and garlic fries, after doing some research read that this place has a good reputation for my favourites. It didn't disappoint! I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with a side of BBQ beans and garlic fries - fabulous! It was very busy, we were lucky to... More

This was way stop during road trip around California, and after doing some research was more than happy with my half way stop. Didn't realise how busy other cafés are around pismo beach area. Parking very easy and free on street. Managed to find a seat fairly quick, and ordered pulled pork and some green fried tomatoes. The pulled prok... More

We really enjoyed our tri tip sandwiches. Their sauces are extremely good. I really recommend the garlic fries. Be sure to have a few friends around to help finish them off. The ambience is kind of an eclectic southern mess. The food is good, so that is not a big deal.

Without having read the reviews on tripadvisor, we wouldn't have entered that place, most likely. But don't let yourself be misled, the food is delicious, the stuff very friendly and quick, you will not be disappointed! We had the ribs, half chicken and some burgers. The ribs just melted in our mouth, the chicken was delicious and very tasty and... More

The place is real clean, and the service was wonderful! Why do you have to have a minimum of 100 words when you say all you want to in a lot less? This optional should be left up to the customer!! We had the pulled pork sandwiches.

Came with the family looking for good quality BBQ, and we found it!! The restaurant itself looked ok, not too nice. However, the food was outstanding. We had pork ribs, grilled chicken, fries and hamburger. All was delicious. Especially the BBQ sauces were impressive! Highly recommended:)

We were so excited to come back to this place as we remember how juicy the ribs were 3 years ago. Nah.... the good chef has left. The ribs served today look dry and old. It didn't look great anymore. As predicted, it tasted old and dry. We felt so regretful to pay $30 for old and dry ribs. Very... More
