Had the chicken BBQ sandwich. It was pretty dry. Added lots of sauce from the squirt bottle on the table. That helped a little, but tasted like any grocery store BBQ sauce. The person I was with also put lots of the squirt bottle sauce...More

Didn't care for the coleslaw but the tri-tip sandwich was the bomb! Great flavor and the side salad was fresh!

This BBQ spot is probably the best place to eat in town. Food is always fresh and tasty! The italian pressed sandwich with brisket is my favorite next to the rebel fries. I dont think you can really go wrong with anything on the menu!...More

The meat is served without sauce, and it really doesn't need any because they do such a great job smoking it slowly. That said, try the sauce anyway - it is excellent. Not overly sweet. Location is next to McDonalds

The meat has a great smoke flavor, so you really don't need a BBQ sauce, but try theirs anyway. Home made and not overly sweet - perfect. We have eaten here over 20 times, and the food is consistently great.

Can't state the rules in California, but there were no signs prohibiting dogs and there was one on the patio when we were there. Hope this helps!
