award-winning championship bbq restaurant

"I honestly am at a loss for superlatives regarding this delightful (new) addiction of mine. Honestly... The best beef ribs I've ever had. Not even a smidge of an exaggeration." -Roy B., San Marcos

The Food

Our standards are high. We proudly serve Brandt Beef, and everything, yes, everything - on our menu is cooked from scratch right here in our kitchen. We serve everything you'd expect including pulled pork, beef ribs, brisket, tri-tip, wings, chicken, 1/2lb smoked burgers, and even housemade spicy sausage. Enjoy sides like bbq beans, potato salad, hand-cut onion rings, sweet peach cobbler, and local beer on tap.

Our Menu

"This is by far the best BBQ restaurant that I have ever eaten at. I usually order beef ribs and theirs were soooo meaty, tender and delicious. The servings are huge."

We started out in the side of a Chevron station. (Really truly! That's our 1211 E. Vista Way location.) Our food quickly became popular enough that we expanded into a fast casual, sit-down location in historic downtown Vista.

About us

As a competition BBQ team, our roots go way back to 2006 when we took home the first prize ribbon for brisket at the very first Stagecoach Country Music Festival bbq competition in Palm Desert. Since then, we've placed first numerous times for our smoked meats, and have been crowned the Grand Champion at one of California's largest BBQ competitions. We can't wait to share our love of BBQ with you!
