I had the pulled pork sandwich. It was delicious. The place is very laid back, great service and nice atmosphere. Definitely going back there on my next visit to Cali.

This place serves legit BBQ! The smell lured me in. They were out of the brisket, but recommended the Texas cheese steak, which had the brisket chili on it. It was messy, but fabulous!

We had BBQ Pork, St. Louis Ribs, & Sliders... pretty good. Outside dining in the marketplace. Only complaint is we wanted to try the Brisket Chili, but they had sold out. This was at 2:30 in the afternoon
