“Great Bar B Que Friendly Service Easy parking Nearby Shopping”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Great food reasonably priced. Great for lunches as people can get what they want and pay separately. For families with kids no worries here as there is lots of space and everyone is friendly. Also sometimes I get dinners to go which are great.

“Nothing special but pretty good BBQ”
Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Just outside san francisco by a few miles located in a shopping center. Late lunch about 2:30 pm found the big restaurant almost empty. Inexpensive but good food. Seems like it would be great at night with a few beers and any of their food. Not fancy but clean. Ribs were very tender and tasty. No table service...place order at register when you pay and wait for your number to be called and grab a table. Plain, simple, good.

“Easy parking and easy eating.”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

A nice BBQ place with appeal to young and old. When my daughter was a toddler we started taking her here as it was a fun place. The food is very good. I'm a big BBQ fan so this place was great.

It's located in an outdoor shopping center so you have a big parking lot and lots of stores around you. The restaurant is in a big building, so the sound doesn't echo and you can actually carry on a conversation.

“Above average BBQ Food”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Good selection of BBQ food served semi-cafeteria style. For a quick, affordable family dinner where you are not looking for a big fuss, this was perfect.
