There is ample seating in the dining room, the dining area of the bar, and the bar itself. With a good crowd for a Thursday and Friday happy hour, the menu was as varied as you could imagine. Excellent brisket !

Located ten minutes east of Downtown San Diego, Cali Comfort BBQ is quickly becoming known to locals outside of East County as the go-to destination for Slow Smoked Barbecue and San Diegan Hospitality! At Cali Comfort BBQ in the heart of Spring Valley, we barbecue all of our meats in our Ole Hickory Smoker with select cooking woods after they have been seasoned with our specialty Cali Dry Rub. Passionate about remaining true to barbecue tradition, we have developed our menus for our Low -N- Slow Cali BBQ Restaurant and Catering Events to offer only the highest quality barbecue in San Diego. Since we smoke the traditional way, "low-n-slow" there are times that we run out due to increased cravings for great tasting barbecue. We know that those of you who understand the true art of barbecue realize that once we are out, we are out. We cannot smoke up another batch of great tasting BBQ until the next day. A general rule of thumb for our smoked meats are as follows:
