This is such a nice place to come to for happy hour while waiting for your table. Service is not bad and the BBQ is tasty as well and it's so close to the neighborhood that we can walk there.

stayed across the street at the Sheraton for a week for work. I ate here at least 5 times. I atmosphere is second to none. Very large, but a warm, cozy feeling with dim lights. I like that. I recommend all I had including ribs, steak, pulled pork and baked potatoes. prices are reasonable as well.

Here's what I like here: their smoked brisket, beef ribs, and buffalo wings are the best. The kid's salmon is also not a bad deal at around $8. The chicken wings are plump and delicious, and at around $10, it's a great deal. If you want to save money, skip the drinks, which I think are $3.50. The kids' meal... More

We picked this place due to its proximity to the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. After schlepping through late afternoon traffic from LA, we arrived at the restaurant around 6 pm on a Saturday evening. Things to know: 1. They do not take reservations. 2. Apparently everyone in Cerritos comes here on Saturday night. 3. They will notify you... More

The food is quite good and the atmosphere is fun and enjoyable. The prices are reasonable to say the least (however we were just coming from Hawaii where we felt like we were getting robbed at nearly every meal).

I am from Texas so I have eaten lots of BBQ. The food here is good and the signature BBQ sauce is slightly sweet. We enjoyed the ambiance and feel of the restaurant better than the food, but there wasn't really anything wrong with the food just a preference in BBQ to be a bit less sweet. We would eat... More

I LOVE this place! The dinner rolls, tri-tip, and mac & cheese are my favorite, but I haven't had anything I haven't liked. Just writing about it is making me crave bbq!
