Went with family of 4, including 2 small kids. The place is more like a bar on weekends than a restaurant, which is to be expected given the name - crazy karaoke crowd. The food was just ok, service was pretty good. Beer selection is great, and lots of options for those not craving bbq.

We met at this sports bar to catch up with friends. I was so relieved the menu was not your typical sports bar fare, by any means. There was everything from prime rib to tacos. Reasonably priced, too. They have a good daily special menu as well.

We went here on Mother's Day for brunch. We thought it would be a buffet type brunch and was a little disappointed in the format. But when the food arrived it was a different story. I've never had brisket gravy on biscuits - amazing. My mouth is watering just thinking of them. The pancakes were horrible, but everything else was... More

Among the best-ever BBQ, and our favorite in Poway! Friendly service and relaxing sports-bar kind of atmosphere. Plenty of TVs to keep tabs on your favorite sporting events. Lunch or Dinner are equally good. Try the Sangria, too!

We've been to Kaminski's a few times and our last experience was very good. The BBQ was very tasty, service was good, and the atmosphere was energetic, without being too loud.

This place has it all: great food, good service, and the neighborhood feel. They also cater---and they are fantastic. From BBQ to grilled cheese and tomato soup, everything is tasty and fresh.

The night started out well, good food and good company. We came to see a local band perform, we had a group of about 25 people to support the band, and all was well until one of our friends started to dance to the music. The owner began to question him, asking if he was drunk and telling him he... More

Part of 5. Good food. Fall off the bone meats. Our server made the meal and dining experience. Suggestive selling without pressure. Individual attention. Offered samples. Could have checked back more often. I would go back anytime.

Love this place. Want to try it for Sunday football sometime. Their BBQ is great. There is a restaurant section separate from the bar area so it is good if you come with kids. Food comes out pretty quick which is nice too.

We do not have a lot of good food choices in Poway and for some reason we keep trying this place as its convenient to home but always disappointed. We do like the bar and atmosphere but that's about it. We have yet to have a decent meal and overpriced for what you get. Last Wed. Was wing nights and... More
