Foursquare Tips

  • I'm not with anyone - just sitting in my car, debating ordering a sandwich to share with my dog
  • Eat at the bar where there is no wait.!
  • Omg everything! I like the coleslaw, onion rings, their homemade ranch, BBQ SAUCE is so good you even can buy some on your way out!
  • Great experience. . No line
  • Don't be afraid of the line if it is out the door. Once ordered, your food comes up really fast. And it is worth the wait. Can also call ahead for take out
  • Broham and whoopie pie. Fries are Delish but you will be too full!!
  • Thrillist Top BBQ List: "What you're getting: El Toro sandwich & 1/2 rack of baby back ribs" El Toro tri-tip 'wich was finalist 4 "Best Sandwich in US" (purists might want to just stick to baby backs)
  • While waiting for your take away order, have a libation at the bar - Christin, the bartendress is the bomb! :) Cool vibe!
  • Customer service is great! You get a lil sticker when it's your first time there!
  • El Toro. Deli sliced tri tip sangwich is crack. So much meat you can make another one.

  • The Baby Back Ribs and Tri-tip were to die for. Man, oh, man the food at this place is killer. Especially with the super yummy side of BBQ Baked Beans. And do not forget Frank's Hot Sauce. Yummy.
