In Oakland for business and had a taste for ribs. This joint came up first in my web search and very glad it did. No frills, order spot in a great location just down the road from the Cal campus. Did the chicken and rib combo with the medium sauce. Sauce had a ton of flavor. Nothing better then seeing them open the smoker door to the right of the cash register, picking out some fresh meat to serve up. E and J is an obvious look standing rib joint in Berkeley with photos and mementos on the walls to prove. Bunch of picnic tables out side to round out a perfect no frills rib experience. Will be returning again.
