“Great food, tight quarters”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

As others have said, you can't beat the BBQ here, but be prepared to squeeze in if you go for lunch - the place is small, and the tables are really close together and always tightly packed with diners! That's the only thing that keeps us from going more often.

“Hidden gem in Azusa”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great BBQ. Haven't had anything yet we didn't like. The Philly Cheesesteak with tri-tip is awesome. The pulled pork is outstanding. My wife loves the BBQ chicken salad.

Get there early, they can get very crowded well before noon!

“We could not be more pleased!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

If you like sweet, savory beef, If you go for the whole Texas Barbeque experience, if you live near San Gabriel Valley of California, you owe it to your taste buds to get into Canyon City Barbeque!
Situated on a little corner in the center of the Mexican Food capitol of the world, this unpretentious restaurant serves up pure southern BBQ. We had the brisket with coleslaw,with beans southern style suggested by Eddie the mechanic down the street, . OMG! The meat was tender and full of flavor, the coleslaw made it all crunchy and the beans were a treat. Food was served promptly by friendly servers .All for about $12.00 A full line of on tap beer and other beverages are available. Ample parking in the rear and on the street. It was packed at noon by local workers on their lunch. Menu is available on the website.
Above all else is the way this restaurant fits right in with the community. Everyone in town loves this place, I worked in Azusa for over 35 years and I can tell you that is no small accomplishment.
Give the carnivore in you a treat. Don't miss, Canyon City Barbeque!

“Great BBQ Pork!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We tried this restaurant over Memorial Day weekend. The place was packed! We had the full rack of St. Louis Pork Spareribs, and the Pulled Pork with Swiss and Onions sandwich. The food was Excellent. The meat was tender and flavorful. Our daughter wanted just a hot dog which she wanted plain. She gave it a thumbs up.
