If you're big on ribs or tri-tip meals in a cozy place without any pretentious expectations, you will want to visit this place. I like their welcome sign "If you have a reservation, you're in the wrong place"!

Small but enough seating. Great BBQ food. We've called in our order and picked up at the pickup window or went inside to pickup the order

Food is always good, maybe a little expensive. But consistently tasty. Good selection of beers. Waiter very attentive.

We love Trail Dust. We visit this restaurant at least once a month. The tri tip is amazing, and we always save room for berry cobbler. Great service and great food.
