I've been going to Everet&Jones of and on since they opened 40 years ago. The one thing that sticks out is consistency. That coupled with serving the best bbq I've ever had (which of course is a matter of taste and can be debated) and yes I have been to Kansas City. Great sides as well. Only change I've seen... More

I have been going to this BBQ joint for years. It is very popular with the locals. Their BBQ sauce is to die for. They have off street parking and the area is pretty safe and busy.

Been going to Berkeley Everett & Jones for 20+ years. Little has changed. That brick oven still puts out slow cooked ribs and beef bbq that can't be beat! We get the mild sauce, but the medium and (look out) hot sauce has plenty of followers. This is a take out place we try to pass by as we go... More

Not crazy about the white bread and butter .. The sides are weak but the BBQ sure is good. This is the spot my guy always wants to eat at if we are in the area.

Everett and Jones BBQ is a long time favorite and consistently good. Flavorful, smoky meats--I prefer the Ribs and Chicken--and great sides--love the Creamy Potato Salad. Don't miss out on this late night spot when in Berkeley.

The BBQ was well cooked and the sauce was delicious....this is coming from a person that's not all that into BBQ either.

This was not only the first Everett and Jones spot I ever tried, it was my first taste of urban BBQ. From the first part of that sentence you can tell I've been to several other E&Js sites and always been satisfied. Their mild sauce is tasty, their medium has a serious zing. I've never dared the hot. Their ribs... More
