“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2008

If you're in Modesto and looking for barbecue, be sure to try Doc's. We try to sample barbecue wherever we go, and although we are die-hard fans of Everett and Jones in the East Bay, this was absolutely the best contender we have ever run into--different style, just as good. And nice folks!

“The best BBq”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2008

Doc's is about the best I've ever had. Its authentic slow cooked with wood. His brisket is unbelievable good. I also love the Baby backs and regular ribs. He also makes his own links which are very good. Wish he had beer and wine but the food makes up for it. Very clean and restrooms are double clean, ready for surgery. What are you waiting for, get going.

“Great Barbequed Tri-tip, Links and Ribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2007

Great Barbeque
The Tri-tp, Ribs, Links and Chicken are done to perfection
The sauce comes in heat ranges from mild to flaming hot
(my favorite)
The side dishes have the same great quality

Doc, his family and his employees are all very nice people. The friendly service makes great barbeque taste even better.

Its the place to go if you want to eat Q

“Worth a long trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2007

This is the real thing. The barbeque is done over a wood fire and is smoke-cooked. The ribs practially fall off the bone. The brisket is the best I've had outside of Austin, Texas. We drive over an hour from the Bay Area to get our BBQ fix here. The staff is friendly-- as the previous reviewer said, they treat you like family. This is as good as it gets! We buy lots of extra to take home and enjoy over the week. Mmmmmmmmm!
