“Doc's Rocks!!!”
Reviewed 5 June 2009

We drove 65 miles from Madera today on a friend's strong recommendation and were not disappointed. We ran into Doc himself in the parking lot (though we didn't know it at the time) and watched him check the meats in smoker. We asked him for a lunch suggestions and went with the 4meat sampler: baby backs, tri-tip, pulled pork and chicken. One was better than the other. Our sides were slawand beans, also tremendous. We placed the same order to go (for the in-laws) and also got a couple of peach cobblers. Doc threw in a banana pudding on the house. Fast, friendly service and nice downhome ambience. This is a MUST for any serious self respecting q-hound.

“Great find!”
Reviewed 13 March 2008

If you're in Modesto and looking for barbecue, be sure to try Doc's. We try to sample barbecue wherever we go, and although we are die-hard fans of Everett and Jones in the East Bay, this was absolutely the best contender we have ever run into--different style, just as good. And nice folks!

“The best BBq”
Reviewed 21 February 2008

Doc's is about the best I've ever had. Its authentic slow cooked with wood. His brisket is unbelievable good. I also love the Baby backs and regular ribs. He also makes his own links which are very good. Wish he had beer and wine but the food makes up for it. Very clean and restrooms are double clean, ready for surgery. What are you waiting for, get going.

“Great Barbequed Tri-tip, Links and Ribs”
Reviewed 1 October 2007

Great Barbeque
The Tri-tp, Ribs, Links and Chicken are done to perfection
The sauce comes in heat ranges from mild to flaming hot
(my favorite)
The side dishes have the same great quality

Doc, his family and his employees are all very nice people. The friendly service makes great barbeque taste even better.

Its the place to go if you want to eat Q
