It's good but not Phil's BBQ good. No wait and if you're in Bay Park it's a good choice. Get some BBQ and go have a picnic at Mission Bay park

Came here because we saw an older man spinning a sign on the road. Figured we'd give it a shot. Surprised by the amazing craft beer selection. Even more surprised by the quality of the bbq. So succulent and flavorful. Didn't even need sauce.

Our second time. We got 4 entrees to go, sandwiches, brisket, a bunch of different sides. Everything is fresh and heavenly. We go for the sweeter sauce, yum! Another great addition to Clairemont!
