Have eaten there several times over the last couple months but after last night's pulled pork nachos - I had to say something....they were phenomenal. Service has always been great, seating area has a great mood and theme and the special burger I had there once was outstanding. But wow...I am stoked they are here...

Best BBQ in town hands down. Now Im from the south and we know our BBQ. This place holds up if not better. The staff is friendly and will walk you through anything you need to know. Lets not talk about how mouth watering the sauce is ... Btw it is made in ? . Great price and amazing food!

We stopped here during a Santa Cruz visit because bbq options are very limited in our hometown. The service was friendly and fast, and the patio is really pleasant. Unfortunately the bbq wasn't great - the brisket was very dry, and the baby backs needed a Little more time on the grill to reach "fall off the bone" stage. Bbq sauce was slightly too much on the chili side for my personal taste. The slaw was fresh, and the Mac-n-cheese needed salt but was clearly homemade and good.
