Fall off the bone ribs

Mouth watering ribs. They fall off the bone. Super yummy pasta. Very good food. Will certainly be back for more.

good food and atmosphere. I ordered a Rum and coke with my lunch. I had th Rum and Coke in a tall beer glass. (16oz) The bartender charged me for the drink plus $2,00 for a tall glass? He said he was told to do that. This is a first for me and I've never been charged for a tall... More

WE had a really nice lunch on Sunday. Loved the old place. We have been there before but not for awhile. Still the same. Pesto is the BEST!!!

Waterloo is a great little BBQ joint on the outskirts of Stockton. It has a quaint atmosphere and nothing fancy. Prices are a bit high but the portions make up for it. The average person will be taking home another meal! I had the the combo plate and loved it...I think the chicken was my favorite. The side of pesto... More

We had a business dinner here recently and greatly enjoyed this out of the way yet famous food dive. About 6 miles East of Hwy 99 in the Lodi / Stockton area, this joint was established back in the 1860's. Over the years it has developed the reputation as a laid back place to grab some BBQ or a steak,... More

Good food but too high for the product. Waterloo special was very tender but BBQ was just ok. Mushroom bread bowl was great and the calamari appetizer was not that good. Salad was decent but the dressing was watered down. Pasta was a plenty and good. The bread was great. Service was slow but the place was packed also. The... More

This is the only place that knows how to make a calamari steak, period. Always tender with excellent breading. Get there early for dinner because the place fills up fast and you may need to wait.

If you want "fancy," Waterloo is probably not your place. If you want fun, funky and good food then Waterloo is the place to go. And if you're a Giants fan...even better. Waterloo does killer ribs; dynamite appetizers (the mushrooms in bread bowl are divine!) and pesto that is just plain good. Waterloo also does a BBQ pork sandwich that... More
