The beef brisket alone is worth the trip but the pork ribs, the chicken, the Salmon, the hot links, the potato salad, the beans oh and I cannot forget the scrumptious Mac-N-Cheese you have to try!!!

This place has adapted to covid surprisingly well. It's mostly a bbq place it seems, with bar drinks as an accompaniment. The barbeque is also really good. Probably some of the best in the bay area.

I would like to start off by saying I am in the restaurant business. So giving a really negative review is hard for me. I recently went to spats and the whole experience was horrible. There were about ten people there so it wasn't busy. But it took about ten minutes for the bartender to stop talking to his co-worker and acknowledge me. Then he walked past me to another customer that already had a drink and offered him another. Then he finally came to take my order. He was nice enough. But you could tell he was ready to end his shift. I ordered some food as well. The ambiance is nice enough so no complaints there. But when I got my food.....it was horrible. I had the rib tips and rib combo with potato salad and corn bread. I was excited. Who doesn't like BBQ. It was terrible. I seriously couldn't eat it. I'm not sure what flavor profile they were going for but you could tell either they just don't care when they make it or they have no real experience cooking. A new bartender started her shift and after I patiently waited for her to finish texting I asked her for a box. She said I had to go get one from the kitchen. So I did. Another bartender took my empty burboun glass and didn't think I might possibly want another round, which of course I did. It felt like it was a place with no management and a young under trained staff. Like someone bought the place and just let all their friends run it with no experience. I would never go back .

I love Spats there BBQ and Drinks are really good. I been there just to have drinks and also to eat I love that it's family oriented and that they have old school pin ball machines. I love the drinks good and strong for a good price. The staff in the restaurant is so nice and sweet. I love they have live music there and that it's local for me to get to.

Stopped in at Spats last night for the first time after work and was surprised by the great, friendly service I received. Especially the bartender on duty, Jake. He was attentive and helpful. Also the beers didn't cost an arm and a leg! So pretty dope!
