Had the chicken and ribs, coleslaw, Mac and cheese. Meat was dry and tasteless. Mac and cheese tasted like it came from Von's deli. Coleslaw was good.

Really, it's not comparable to the better BBQ you can find in Texas or New Orleans or Chicago. But it's the best BBQ in all of Ventura County. Prepare to stuff yourself!
