Melt in your mouth beef ribs

Everyone is so friendly, it is so cool that you can bring your dog with you. The ribs are huge and cooked perfectly. Will be back again this time I will bring my boxer.

Had the smoked bbq beef brisket sandwich with a side of beans. Lots of flavor. The original BBQ sauce is the best.

My family and I had the pleasure of eating at Bull's on our vacation to La Jolla. Bull's is definitely a little off the beaten tourist path, which for us was all the better. It had a nice local vibe to it which was quite enjoyable. We ate on the outdoor patio where the owner entertained us all with the... More

I am here in San Diego on business all week and happened to spot this place this morning on my way to an appointment. The "Dogs Welcome" sign caught my eye immediately so I figured, how can I not check it out. My dog travels with me everywhere so I picked him up at the hotel after my day of... More

We had pulled pork sandwiches and ribs. The meat falls right off the bones. The toasted buns for the sandwiches were perfect. Next time I would only get a 1/2 sandwich with a side bc a full sandwich was a lot. They put crushed cheez-it's on the macaroni....which was weird. Their toilet paper and paper towels were what you'd expect... More

Went here for the first time a few weeks ago and I can't really complain. The staff was very friendly and the place was really cute with it's cowboy décor. There's even an outside patio that is dog friendly and also provided is a doggy door so the furry friends don't have to cut through inside the restaurant. I ordered... More

The food here was good. No WOW factor, and small selection for kids. BUT the waitress was worth the meal. Smiling, cute and everything done that you enjoy every second there.
