We drive past County Line BBQ Cafe all the time on the way from OC to Borrego Springs and back, and have always been curious. It looks rustic, but active with a full parking lot (cars & motorcycles). Then I read the great reviews and we moved it up the priority list. We arrived a little after... read more

We tried out the new winery here in Warner Springs called Emerald Creek. They served some great food from the County Line BBQ. My husband and I both had fantastic pulled pork sandwiches. The side salad seemed a little pricey but when it arrived we were pleased with the size. It was enough for us to share. We also tried... More

We've been driving by County Line BBQ Cafe for a few years on occasional trips to Los Angeles, but our timing was off -- they were either closed or we weren't ready for a meal. We remained curious, however, and yesterday the stars aligned -- we were hungry, and they were open on our return trip. Don't be fooled by... More

I get pretty tired of chain places (Chili’s, etc.) but as we all know – sometimes they’re just convenient. So it was with great pleasure that we discovered County Line BBQ. A group of friends and I were traveling to a camping adventure, and stopped here on our way up. This place is no frills. The dining room area is... More

You might be tempted to drive right on by this funky little place with the big BBQ Cafe sign on Highway 79 thinking that it looks a bit more like a junk yard than a restaurant. But take a break from your North Mountain Wine Trail tasting trip and you will be amply rewarded with unique, freshly-prepared food. The brats... More

No chicken for you, no ketchup for you! We went with six friends that live down the road from this place and frequent it often. So we were warned. The menu is fun and the 'brats' are the most popular menu item. We tried the bison brats but found them kinda boring. Enjoyed the Cesar salad and drooled over the... More

We had a wonderful lunch. We tried the phesant brats, Brisket and pulled pork sandwiched. All were excellent!

Stopped by here on the way back from the glider port out at Warner Springs and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. I had the ribs which were fantastic and falling off the bone and my hubby had the elk burger and he thought it was the best thing he'd ever eaten. Great service and nice atmosphere... More

Having decided we needed a cold drink and some dinner at the end of a long workday; we were happy to see a sign on the side of the road advertising the County Line BBQ Cafe. As a couple who travel constantly on business; we always prefer to choose a locally owned restaurant and stay away from the big food... More

I had the Elk Burger! It was delicious! If I'm in the area again, I will definitely stop. The owners are very friendly and enjoyed meeting them and talking to them about the area.
