The tri-tip is sooooo good! Smokey tender deliciousness with just the right amount of salt and seasonings. My fiancé and I have been here twice now and have been impressed both times. We also love the brisket - just the right amount of marbling for a juicy inside with a tasty crispy bark on the outside.

I'm a BBQ lover and eat it wherever I go. This place by far is in my top 3...The bark on the brisket was amazing. It was seasoned perfectly. The chicken was so tender and the ribs were good. If you are looking for a place for BBQ and you're in Castro Valley, this is a MUST!

Everything was absolutely delicious!!! The meats were tender and flavorful. Everyone was raving about it and asking where we ordered from. 100% will be ordering again in the near future & would recommend to anyone anytime!
