August Barbeque may be an unassuming little place, but don't be fooled. This is hands down, one of the best barbeque places I've ever eaten. These guys know what it takes to make great BBQ! Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Best turkey sandwich I've had, and I've tried a lot! Very juicy and tender... I had squash casserole as the side and it is great also.

My husband and I often travel Hwy. 280, and it was not uncommon to see a full parking area at this restaurant on some occasions. We love good BBQ pork, so we were interested by the crowds and chose to stop when it was convenient....More
