I don't head to the South Bay for BBQ but sounded good. Small place outside but plenty of seating although I was there before the main meal time. Two big smokers next to the parking lot made me optimistic. Great service all meal long and...More

Pretty much a "dive" restaurant but very much worth it for the food. Parking is limited so you will probably have to park on the street if you go during busy times. The brisket and pork Ribs are awesome! You should also try all the...More

Having never driven into the airport, I was a little leery of finding the place. Super simple and easy to get to, though! And the food! YUM! Plan to take it out, there really is very little seating. Call to make sure they're open, too.

My family and I absolutely love this place. We have been to all three, but the hole in the wall on 4th street is our favorite. Don’t let the outside of the place fool you, it is a great smoke house.

I got the BBQ pork sandwich and a side of mac & cheese. Both were good, but mac & cheese was incredible. The building was kinda run down, but the food was good.

We are a very casual BBQ "joint" in the traditional sense. The focus is on the food. Slow smoked meats, homemade sides, rubs, sauces and desserts. Friendly service, at home feel. Excellent beer and wine lists (no kidding). Genuine Southern BBQ. Everything made in-house. Our mission is your delight. We Cater too! 25 to 5000 people.
