“Real Good Barbecue done right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The Mrs. and I stumbled in there for lunch. It was kind of slow. I ordered the pulled pork sliders, My wife ordered the baby back ribs. The sliders came on a soft bun kind of like a white castle bun, soft but not doughy. The meat was perfectly cooked. they brought two sauces one hot, kind of a cayenne pepper spice, one more of a vinegary sauce. They were great . The baby back ribs were excellent, the meat practically fell off the bone. We had 2 side dishes , The coleslaw and the german potato salad. The coleslaw was really nice It was so nice I would order it again by itself. The German potato salad was a warm salad also really nice. The meal was really good.They have an interesting collection of beer & wine . We are so coming back there for dinner ! It is defiantly the best Barbecue in Pleasant Hill

“Absolutely Great BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stumbled into Slow Hand and was delighted to find a really good BBQ. The place is clean (not fancy), the folks an absolutepleasure to deal with, the prices are reasonable and the BBQ is OUTSTANDING. Located in the original Back 40 location it still has pure wood fired ovens which is something no longer allowed in this part of the world. This makes the meat seasoned with only salt and pepper on a par with the great southern BBQ of yesteryear. I've been back 2 more times and the Tr-tip, brisket and baby back ribs all have my 2 thumbs up. Defiantly worth going out of your way for.
