This is by far my favorite BBQ restaurant while traveling to San Diego. The food is great and the prices are extremely reasonable. I've been here about 3 of 4 times and I have never been disappointed in this place. It's right down the street from the beach, so parking can be a bit challenging, but keep driving around, you'll...

All their sides are amazing and I especially love their mac and cheese. Perfect addition with the pulled pork bbq sandwich. Their prices are so reasonable and the employees have... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant while visiting Ocean Beach last summer. Since then, we make a point to eat at the BBQ House when we are in the area. The restaurant is nothing fancy, but the food is incredible. Best BBQ ribs EVER! The meat is smoky, tender, and comes off the bone with ease. There are a variety of... More

The ribs were smoky and delicious, though not fall of the bone. The spicy sauce is not very spicy but is quite good. There was a 30 minute wait for take out and no line. The sides were ok. The tap beer is very good. The menus up high are kinda confusing. The staff is helpful.
