AWESOME food at good price. Family friendly and great service! I've been there with groups of friends and also family; they accommodate a range of group sizes. The grilled cheese and cornbread are 10/10!

Not your typical finger licking bbq. More on the dry side. Food was very good. You might have to wait a moment to be seated as this place is popular. Love to go back.

Lunch was good. Had pulled pork BBQ sandwich. Friends enjoyed their sandwiches as well. I have been back once after a bike ride too.

Lots of different meat options; venison, boar, bison, etc. I stuck with the ribs which were delicious. Small place, tight seating. Great service! 4 different sauces available on the table: Vinegar, Mustard, Spicy and Sweet.

This place, like all on Main St. in Seal Beach, is casual. If you like beer and BBQ, you will probably enjoy yourself. They have a bar with many, many beer-on-tap selections on one side, and the restaurant on the other, even though the place...More
