Been going here for years and is still the best BBQ and sandwich place around. There sauces are delicious and the hot beef brisket sandwich just melts in your mouth, their gravy is awesome on fries. Ribs are cooked perfectly and one of my favs. You might have to wait if you go right at lunch or dinner time but... More

We ate so much food and all delicious. We ordered pulled pork, ribs, beans, fries & cornbread. Tip, order the nachos with salsa and warm melted cheese. They also have an extensive beer list. Most beer on tap. We recommend & will return. The ribs were in point!

My husband's work fed his crew this past week. He brought me leftovers. I have never had better BBQ, even reheated. The brisket was fork tender. the pulled pork was tasty and flavorful on a toasted bun.I can't wait till we can head to Canyon City BBQ in Azusa to have the full sit down experience!! 5 Stars definitely!!

When we lived in Glendora (before moving out of state), we would always go to Canyon City. Their food is beyond delicious and huge portions. The BBQ sauce is out of this world!

We were wandering around with our friends when lunch time hit and they suggest Canyon City BBQ even though they had not been there in years. I selected the pulled pork sandwich, which was plenty meaty, tasty and tender. There were two bottles of BBQ sauce on the table and I chose the sweet one to add to my sandwich.... More

Our family was traveling through from Wyoming. Saw the good reviews, and this place did not disappoint! Amazing tender bbq food. The meat fell completely off the ribs, we tried the variety of meat on a plate and it was all great. Very impressed

Wonderful rustic bbq place. Tight seating, but everyone is friendly! It's bbq! Street parking in residential area and small parking lot. Food is worth the wait if you hit a crowd there. Also take out is a good option. TV sports on a few sets too. Can't get much better than the loaded spud with pulled pork.

First stop at Canyon City BBQ. Fantastic! First, BBQ was exceptional. Second, the sides were outstanding. And third, amazingly, the tea was excellent. This is great southern style BBQ in SoCal. I will be back.
