“Great hidden gem on mission bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Found this place by going for a walk our first night in Mission Bay. It is small inside, but the staff was friendly, decor was quaint and menu selection was good. We ordered a full rack of ribs and the B52. Be forewarned, the B52 is delicious, but can easily feed 2 people. The ribs were super tender...fall off the bone would be an understatement.

“Good Fries”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We were eating early and off-season and were the only ones eating, so things might be better when they expect more customers. Service was very pleasant. The fries were excellent, but neither the pulled pork sandwich nor the half-rack of ribs was worth finishing. I love BBQ, but not here. The breakfast menu looks OK, so we might give that a try.

“great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This food is not only very reasonably priced but is very tasty! The BBQ ribs were enjoyed by all who ordered them--enough so that we came back several days later to repeat the experience. This is a family-owned and -run business and meals are home-cooked. THe homemade fries and BBQ ribs will not disappoint.

“Great BBQ!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Within walking distance from the Bahia Resort hotel. So we went here for dinner one night! Fantastic BBQ! Great little spot to have a beer and watch the game.
