Best BBQ ever! The pork ribs fall right off the bone, and they're not all sauced up, they have a spice rub and a glaze so they're amazing, but not sloppy. Plus... the owner is hot!!!
The fritopie is even more delicious the second day
Hands down the best brisket and ribs I have had since Texas
giant classic pulled pork sando with vinegar slaw what else to say! Ask for the secret mustard sauce...
Always a fun stop on the bike, been going since the kids were young. They liked running down the haunted apartments hallway above, at least that's what we told them. Good BBQ, and the bands always sound good.
Still the standard by which others must be measured.

From Burgers to Bone Marrow. This place pumps out the best bar food this side of the bridge. Hint: Always check out their specials board! Fantasctic food and it won't break the bank either. A must visit in the east bay!
Neat kitschy place. Food is pretty good as well. Later in the evening the place gets eclectic, and a bit trashy. One quote I heard last night was, "It's like a drunken WalMart in here." Great beer selection, but only in bottles. Their drafts are just the usual suspects.
Smoke Berkeley is really good. My favorite is the pulled pork sandwich with spicy vinagre sauce, with corn bread. And the pies are dreamy!
Even if you order the "mild" combo, you really need a side order of their weapons grade "hot" sauce, just to sample BBQ the way God intended it to be.
Great BBQ and sides. Fantastic chocolate pecan pie. Friendly chef and staff.
We had most of the meats. Generally underwhelming.. Ribs were tough and not smokey, brisket was cut wrong and little smoke ring, tri-tip was just ok, links were just so so. Mac and Cheese, Yams, and beans were good. Way over priced for the quality of the product. I get BBQ all over the country and usually will kill a combo plate and look for more. Not here, I stopped after about a third of the plate and my wife ate even less of hers. Maybe its too much to expect decent BBQ in Northern California. Skip this one...
