Where do I start, our waitress was awesome, very professional, courteous, and always there before we needed another drink. the manager/owner came out and personally talked with us, and thanked us for coming in. He made it a point to go to every table and chat with the customers. The food was awesome, make no mistake it's great! My favorite was an appetizer called Lil Piggy's Poppers, jalapenos with cheese stuffed inside, bacon wrapped around the outside and fried up, we were there during happy hour and the appetizers on that day were 50% off, so I had 5 of them for $3.50...they were so good, we went back a second time before leaving the area. All the food here is great and the staff are super friendly and quick. When I get back that way I will definitely be eating there more than once, and the prices are better than most restaurants in the area. Don't pass this little place up, it's amazing!

Great food for the price. Have not had this quality of pulled pork and brisket outside of the Southern State. Gotta check it out.

The smokiness of the pulled pork was delicious, but the sauce was so sweet it was like pouring pancake syrup on it. I usually like sweeter sauce, but this was WAY too sweet. Cole slaw was tasty. Eating anything while overlooking San Diego Bay is wonderful.

Had a very enjoyable Sunday lunch. Only available table was in the direct sun. We took it with the understanding that we would move as soon as a shaded table became available. It did almost immediately. As I watched other's disdain for the unshaded table, I couldn't help but wonder if the cost of another umbrella was worth the customers' reactions. My grandson's pulled chicken plate provided generous, tasty portions. My wife enjoyed her barbecue bacon burger. I ordered the beef brisket. I failed to specify chopped or sliced, but didn't realize it until the chopped arrived. While it was tasty, it had way too much fat mixed in. Precisely why I would have ordered sliced. Thesalad I ordered as a side was excellent.

This is a little hole-in-the-wall type place. We went on a day trip to Coronado. It's close to the ferry landing there and is also easily accessible by car. The food is good, not great. They do have a good variety on the menu. Everyone in my party seemed to really like their food. I would definitely recommend it, but don't expect more from it than what it is.
