Very tasty!

I travel to this area frequently, and Bretts has become a regular stop! I love the rope sausage. The ribs were a little tough the last time I was there, but love the potato salad and corn pudding.

What can I say, this place embodies great classic BBQ, and should be your San Diego food choices. So enjoy an American Classic style of food here. Enjoy, Exploretraveler

We are visiting from Colorado and stopped here randomly on our way back from Legoland. The ribs and pulled pork were awesome! Smokey and not too fatty. You can tell they actually smoke all of their meats and not just bake them. The owner checked on us a few times and everyone was smiling and helpful! We will definitely return.

Most of the meats tasted like they had been sitting for awhile. The brisket tasted like roast beef. If you don't know BBQ then you probably won't care, but we won't be returning.

Prices are reasonable/comparable. Not particularly blown away by the food but it wasn't bad either. Staff was friendly and in general, i would come back if i have an itchin' for some restaurant bbq food but it wouldn't be on my list of top restaurants when visiting Cali

The food is always good! I usually order the half chicken and my husband gets the brisket. They give you nice large portions. Excellent beans and onion rings too! The employees are very friendly and they always have my take out order correct and ready to go. Love this place!

Brett is a good bbq place in the Rancho Bernardo, 4S ranch area. They serve the usual pulled pork, baby back ribs, beef ribs. Portion size is good. The sitting area is not big but there is good parking in the shopping center

Last evening my wife and I had another great dinner at Brett's BBQ. The food, sides and sauce are consistently great. This is our go to place for BBQ.
