“All time favorite place for Ribs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2008

I have been visiting Emil Villa's for over thirty years! Now its quite a drive, but when I get that craving for smoked ribs there is no where else to go but Emil Villa's. Its very relaxed and nostalgic but the service is inviting and the ribs are to die for!!!

“Best ribs in the Bay Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2007

We have been going to Emil's for years and have yet to find a better rib huse. I love this "come as you are" place, but remember to bring your appetite, and save room for some great homemade pie for desert..
