Our award winning Baby Back Ribs are meaty and they fall off the bone. The Pulled Pork, Brisket, Tri-Tip and Chicken is so tender and delicious. Adding our very own Homemade BBQ sauce is just an added bonus. We have 6 different kinds of BBQ sauce and Jimmy recently added the Ghost Pepper BBQ Sauce for those that enjoy extremely hot sauces. We even carry a Sugar Free BBQ Sauce. We make our own Mac & Cheese, Cole Slaw (yes, even the cole slaw mix), BBQ beans, Potato Salad, Red Beans and Rice, Collard Greens and Corn bread. Jimmy uses his custom made Brick Pit to smoke all the meats, low and slow over oak wood. We are a small family owned restaurant.

Mediocre food at a high price

Had lunch with the guys from work at Jimmy's. the food was just OK but very high priced. I had a sparerib sandwich. It was served on a standard hamburger bun. The spareribs had some of the cartilage left in them. The sandwitch and Mac and cheese was 12 dollars. I will not be returning

We are sorry that you felt that we are priced too high for the food you bought. The sandwich does come with a side and a drink with free refills. We have removed the spare rib sandwich, the cost is too high for us to keep on the menu. We pride on our BBQ and we think you should try... More

Jimmy's has the best BBQ in San Diego. This family run and operated business in a small shopping center on the east end of Poway Road is outstanding. The smoky flavor from the brick pit plus their great BBQ sauce makes for an great tasting product. I am a big fan of BBQ and love Armadillo WIlly's in the San... More

The BBQ is prepared daily, on premises, and it does smell great ! The staff here is very friendly and very willing to walk you thru the ordering process. The best part is the variety of sauces you don't find every day. I tried the flaming habanero, and though hot, not over powering. Excellent flavor. I will be returning to... More
