Good American BBQ

The BBQ was standard American wet BBQ. Pork ribs were much better than the beef. Service was not that great. There was plenty of staff walking around, but our server was stretched thin. If you are into sports, there are a lot of screens and sports beng displayed, even international.

Accomodated our large group easily. Good service and pub fare. Good selection of craft beers on tap. Will return the next time I'm in Poway.

It's just a sports bar, but the food rises a level above and most of the items are great for sharing. .

First of all, the homemade potato chips are an outstanding appetizer! I had the Beef Brisket and it was the BEST I have ever had! My husband had the full rack of Beef ribs and he said he has never had better. The meal was outstanding and the service is always great, the staff at this restaurant make you feel... More

Great ambiance and many TVs, beer choices, seating options, and food choices. Been going to K's for years and know the staff and owners fairly well. All very nice and accommodating.

I love my BBQ and this place does it right. The beef brisket is to die for. The sweet potato fries with the chipolte ranch is the perfect dipping sauce - spicy and creamy cool all in one. Lots of tv's and comfortable booths. Very laid back attitude. I love the food, but have difficulties finding something for my daughter... More

The TV set up is wonderful! So many games on one wall makes it so easy to watch sports here. Food is good too. Love the tri-tip and the brisket. Ask for extra sauce; it's yummy! The waitress suggested that my husband add mac and cheese to his sandwich and he loved it! Great place for a game day meal... More

Nice layout for a sports bar but don't go there for the food we tried the ribs and the pulled pork not good. The tater tots tasted like soap.

Husband and I were looking for a place to watch a game and have dinner, we were staying close by and knew of Kaminski's so we decided to go there. Great place to watch a game TV's everywhere and they are great about putting a game you want to watch close by. The food is great too! First try the... More

Came here on the recommendations of friends and this restaurant did not disappoint. The brisket was very good although just a tad on the dry side. The brisket sandwich topped with mac n cheese excellent and big enough to share. Nice selection of sauces to top the meats. The beans were out of this world...tangy, homemade...just perfect. Server was excellent... More
