To me it was just okay. The barbecue is not bad but it's not great either and it all is a bit over priced to me. The restaurant itself is really nice and they do have lots of events but it's more of a bar than anything else. I don't not recommend this place because my friends and family do... More

I truly enjoy the sample BBQ plate and the ice tea. Costs seem reasonable for the area and parking is good. Happy Travels, ExploreTraveler

Went there for the first time and had wings and garlic fries. In fact I enjoyed the fries so much I had a second order. Atmosphere and the people there are great. I'll be back

What a surprise! We stopped by on our last night in Poway but wished we had found it sooner. The portions were gigantic. The platters offer 1/2 portions which are actually too much for one person to eat. We appreciated the different types of BBQ since some in our party prefer the traditional sauce but other like them Southern mustard... More

i was in the San Diego area on business and ended up in a sports bar for dinner; didn't care where we ate, wasn't even hungry. Didn't see much light fare on the menu so asked the wait person if the chicken salad was fresh. She said "all fresh, we don't make it until you order it." I figured it's... More

The BBQ was standard American wet BBQ. Pork ribs were much better than the beef. Service was not that great. There was plenty of staff walking around, but our server was stretched thin. If you are into sports, there are a lot of screens and sports beng displayed, even international.

Accomodated our large group easily. Good service and pub fare. Good selection of craft beers on tap. Will return the next time I'm in Poway.
