Reviews for Cole's Bar-B-Q

This place is insane. Not “good for Santa Cruz” but GOOD.I was driving to Home Depot or something and drawn in from Cole’s enticing fumes. They got the meat and the smoke and the wood, the whole shebang. I would take a date here, I would take my family here, I would have my last meal here. Highly recommend garlic bread, tri tip, pulled pork, chili burger.Everyone working here deserves a raise.

Wow this place was bomb. Delicious and cool environment . Definitely what we needed after the beach. Food is great and service on the super busy 4th of july was awesome the girl did everything she could to make it a great meal. Attentive and nice. We will be eating here each time now. Grilled and wood fire BBQ food is even healthier than random street food. You are the best Coles bar-B-q

I have been coming to Coles for nearly 25 years. I remember the old Aptos location,, but we have eaten at the smaller Pleasure Point location many times too.. The food has always been very consistent, friendly service, and those famous French fries can't be missed ?. It's a great place for outdoor lunch in the cool breezes. I look forward to my next visit.
