“Amazing tri-tip sandwich!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

It's a little tucked away and hard to spot from the road, but it's worth the extra effort. I only get to the central coast once a year and a tri-tip sandwich is a must! This was the right place to go for that. Soft bread, tender meat sliced not too thin and not too thick, and the kicker EXCELLENT SALSA!!! What more could you want? The menu doesn't say it, but you can order the sandwich solo. It's plenty of food without the extra side and extra cost. Check out the cute coffee can sculptures for sale by a local artist while you're there.

“Original Central Coast BBQ”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Great BBQ and service. Friendly down home welcome as you enter and attentive service throughout meal. Thin sliced tri tip cooked on red oak firewood and piled high with delicious flavor and tenderness. Priced right and many good side dishes to enhance the meal. Family owned and operated.
Great beer choices on tap and in the bottle. If you are hungry this is a good place to begin. They also have many entertainment venues and specials throughout the month.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

I found this new place through a coupon book in my local area and tried them out for dinner. The portions were very ample, service was fast, but the taste and texture of everything we tried was simply fantastic. I look forward to coming back to this place again. I would give them 5 stars if their beer wasn't so overpriced!

“Good BBQ”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Ate here for lunch and really enjoyed the tritip plate with a side of linquisa.
A very tasty meal for a good price, not a fancy restaurant but a great basic meal.
The wait staff was great and went out of his way to make sure we were ok.
