Reviewed November 12, 2012

Food was fair, but the BBQ sauce was exceptional. The owners were very friendly, we had a good chat with them.

“Excellent Ribs!!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We stopped here on way back from Yosemite, heading towards Carmel.
We had some ribs and the pulled pork sandwich. The ribs were excellent and the sandwich good. The staff were very friendly and the price was reasonable.
If you like BBQ stop here and enjoy the food!!

“Expensive for average BBQ”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

A rack of ribs here costs about $16 or more. I can get them cooked at our Local Food Max for $12 and they taste just as good. Some of the steaks here are very expensive for Los Banos. Plus, they are only open a couple of days per week.

“Great ribs and potato salad”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We love goiing here to pick food up and take it home. However, it is cute enough inside to stay and eat as well. I love their ribs, garlic bread (on the grill), and home made tasting potato salad.

“Loved the BBQ!!!”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

My husband and I are both from Kansas, so good BBQ ribs are hard to find here on the West Coast. We both really enjoyed Hot City's BBQ rib dinner. The service was excellent. This is such a find. We will go back on our next trip through Los Banos.
