“Food not so great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

I was hoping that a restaurant that specialized in pork would serve good pulled pork. However, that is not the case here. There was a lot of fat in the meat, it was too chunky, and an overall a disappointment. I had the sliders with pulled pork and a side of potato salad. The sandwiches were terrible but the potato salad was not too bad. There are many better places to choose from, which is why I say skip this place and try something else.

“Good food, not so good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2011

It was pretty busy, when I went, so I decided to just get some food to go. I got a ribs and brisket combo with corn fritters and mac and cheese. The food was all excellent. The sauce was delicious, and the meat was all tender and flavorful. My only complaint was the service. As I waited for my food to be ready, I just observed the employees. Everyone working there seemed to be in such a rush to not care about the customers. If they slowed down a little and acknowledged that there were people there, then I would have loved the whole experience.

“A little inconsistent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

We've been here four times, and sometimes the food is good, and sometimes it is not so good. When it isn't good it is usually because it is dry. Inside the tables are picnic tables. But it is nicer to eat outside. You get a better view of the bay with sailboats and ships floating by. You also get a good view of downtown San Diego. The service is alright, but not exceptional.
