Although a little off the mainstream of gorgeous Santa Barbara it is well worth the 15 minute trip to Goleta if you love Barbeque. This staple has been around over 30 years and has some of the best ribs and brisket you'll find. The sauce is amazing. You can buy a tub of the sauce to take with you as well!

If you claim to be a BBQ place, you better do BBQ well. Not so in this case. Trying this place out, I ordered the monster platter, a little bit of all their BBQ specialties. On word... DRY. Everything was dry and their sauce was average. Fries were sloppy greasy and on top of it all, they got my order wrong. They couldn't even get the right sides in the bag. Cole slaw was sub-par.
Only good thing it can say is the staff was nice.

If you like beef or chicken, this is the place for you. It's the kind of food that tends toward heart disease but you won't care while you're eating it. Mmmmmm...

We ate here while on our honeymoon in Santa Barbara. We paid $45 for 2 half rack baby back meals. I thought that was kind of expensive. You get a lot of food and the ribs were tender with lots of meat on them. The booth seat and table were sticky, but I guess it IS a BBQ joint. They had a $5 half chicken and fries special that night, but I didn't see that until after we ordered the ribs. Cool old bathtub in ordering area to wash rib covered hands. Overall a cool place.

Rustic style BBQ restaurant with good BBQ. This is located in Goleta. There was a second locating at Earl Warren's Fair Grounds, but it did not seem popular and closed.
