Quality Food, Friendly Staff, & Good live Music!

When in town this is a good place to get quality meats. One of my favs is the French dip, while my husband likes their ribs. We like to eat in the lively bar and listen to the mellow live music they have on the weekends. I have helped at two reunions from my old H.S. upstairs, and the... read more

If you like your BBQ with plenty of smoke, this is the place for you. I had their prime rib dip sandwich and the meat was sliced thin and piled high. It was lovely and tender and had a strong smoke flavor. That being said, I didn't enjoy my dinner as much as I did a few years ago. The... More

This hard to find location near Best Buy Pleasant Hill was a real surprise. The food was some of the best BBQ in the Bay Area. Great service and country western ambiance. Remember this spot the next time you think "ribs". Nothing better.

I was staying in a hotel about a block away. I asked the desk clerk for a good place to eat close by, and he told me about this place. I'm glad that he did. First of all, it's obviously very popular. I got there at 4 in the afternoon, and the parking lot was already full. I didn't want... More

No parking, super busy all the time and we had to sit in the bar. Service was very slow and our drink glasses remained mostly empty for much of our meal...once we finally got it. We went ahead and ate our meal, which I would assume would have tasted so much better if was actually hot or at least warm.... More

Cool atmosphere. Lively local place. There was a 40 year reunion for a local high school when we were there, so I expected that it would be good. Service was rather slow, and the food was just below average at best. I suppose it is a nice place in the neighborhood to take the kids if there are no food... More
