We were in need of something to eat and walked in; sat at the bar. We had the smoked wings, a salad, pulled pork with greens and mac n cheese and that jalapeño honey cornbread....ALL good!!! Now mind you, this is California and it's on...the main street of Oceanside so you will have a bigger check but the food and the music make it worth it. I ended up taking the cornbread back to the hotel, put it in a Ziplock back I had brought and had a nice snack on my long flight home.More

Excellent hospitality! Food was really good. Has a great vibe. I had the brisket platter with greens and fries. It was perfect for my stop in Oceanside.

Outstanding pulled pork and beef brisket. Sides included Mac and cheese, baked beans. Large portions, enough to make lunch tomorrow! Great southern atmosphere, very friendly and fast service. Recommended for casual spot for a relaxing dinner

Had a party of 4. It was 2 couples just checking out Oceanside for the afternoon and saw this place while walking by. It looked like a cool selection of food, so we stopped in. The drinks were nice and strong just like we like...them. 2 people ordered the BBQ sandwich, one had the shrimp basket, and one had the catfish sandwich. We all shared, and I have to say all of it was tasty, the French fries were perfect, and the mac n' cheese was super gooey and yummy. The waitress was super friendly, and we all had a good time here.More

The staff was quite unfriendly, if not rude. It was raining the night we went. There were clearly open tables and no one else waiting, and the rude man who took our name told us to “go for a walk or something” and would not...allow the two of us to stand just inside the doors. We were super hungry and everything smelled good so we stayed. Waitress was just ok. Food was a big disappointment. Everything was bland. I guess maybe don’t expect decent BBQ in SoCal.More

Great location. It was a hot late afternoon. No AC, but they had fans blowing. It was uncomfortably warm. The New Orleans Saints game was about to start and the place was filling up with Saints fans. A big banner over the bar declares it...“Saints Country.” We sat for about 5 minutes before the server approached our table. We ordered our drinks (Pepsi and Waters)and the Catfish strips as an appetizer. It took another 10 minutes before our server returned with our drinks and take our order. I went with the hotlinks and a mac n cheese. My wife ordered the pulled pork, mac n cheese and the beans. The catfish strips were excellent. Our meals arrived. The food was ok… but not great. There was absolutely no “hot” in the hotlinks and the flavors were benign. The Mac n cheese tasted like the pre-made mac n cheese you get at Dickies Barbecue restaurant chain. The beans were a little undercooked. So they were a little tough. The portions were nice, a little on the larger side. Through our entire meal, the server didn’t return to fill our water or soft drinks. It wasn’t a bad experience… just not a great one. We probably will not repeat. Food- B- Service - CMore

We got in right at opening. We both ordered a half rack of ribs. You get a lot of food, but during this visit the ribs didn't fall off the bone like they did before. Our server was great, but it was not a great...experience this time :(More

Food was excellent, but little heavy for us. However, it could be great for dinner time! I ordered catfish burger, it was great, different from any fish burger with slightly different seasoning as southern spice.

The baby back ribs were very good with a lot of meat but a little too much fat. The mac and cheese is amazing. The cheddar cornbread was underwhelming and the baked beans were not good in my opinion, we too much of a vinegar...taste and I love vinegar. This was food to go and the service was also underwhelming. I got to see inside the place while placing my order and the tables looked uncomfortable. If I was staying in Oceanside I would get the ribs and mac and cheese again but certainly would not eat in the restaurant the future when it is safe to to so. Poor customer service.More

We stumbled upon this place because the brew pub we had planned to go to was closed. We kept walking and as we approached Miss Kim's we smelled the barbecue and heard the great music. Done - here's where we're eating tonight. We all had...the brisket which was outstanding and all our sides were great (beans, greens and Mac 'n cheese.)More

We ordered Brisket and Pulled Pork Sandwiches, the meat was excellent. Great flavor, good sauce as well. We all had mac and cheese as sides, it was a little thick but ok taste, not my favorite. Fries were very good!

The baby back ribs were delicious! The cole slaw and fries were yummy. The beans and corn bread were different than expected but still tasted pretty good. I would definitely return for the ribs. Take out was ready on time with friendly service.

Hands down the best BBQ I’ve ever had. The meat literally melted in my mouth. The sauce was just the right amount spicy and sweet, savory flavor without overdoing it. The coleslaw was fresh and crispy with a light creamy sauce that was perfectly salted...and not gooey or overly sweet. The Mac had a surprising kick to it, but again, just the right amount of heat. And holy cow, my spicy light and fresh Bloody Mary came with a delicious perfectly smoked rib on the flag. Fun atmosphere, great food, great service, all in all a fabulous date night!More
