First stop at Canyon City BBQ. Fantastic! First, BBQ was exceptional. Second, the sides were outstanding. And third, amazingly, the tea was excellent. This is great southern style BBQ in SoCal. I will be back.

We have wanted to try this place for months after recommendation from many and finally went last night with friends. The food was probably some of the driest, toughest meat we have ever had a t a BBQ. The tri tip was dry and tough, the pulled pork was stone cold and the stuffed potato is just that potato except...

I had the tri-tip sandwich which was thick sliced, tender and delicious. My wife order the slider trio with the coleslaw. She loved everyone of the meats (pulled... More
