Our first visit here. We have tried the highly praised tri-tip and chicken combo plate. The chicken was OK, the tri-tip was pretty disappointing and dry. The corn bread and beans were excellent and so was the peach cobbler. But this is a BBQ place...More

Needed to get my BBQ fix wall in SD. Looked up and found Cali Comfort as rated one of the best in town. They really delivered. Amazing real barbecue (smoked meats), awesome service by the staff, and really chill environment. Looking forward to visiting again

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.

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:
