About Our Menu

We barbecue all of our meats after they have been seasoned with our specialty Cali Dry Rubs in our Ole Hickory Smoker with select California cooking woods. Passionate about remaining true to barbecue tradition, we have developed our menu to offer only the highest quality BBQ in San Diego. Since we smoke the traditional way “low-n-slow” there are times that we run out. We know that those of you who understand the true art of barbecue realize that once we are out, we are out.
