By far, the yummiest bbq in SoCal! Killer B's ribs are to die for. If I l=had to choose a next to last supper, this would be it. Unpretentious & delicious!

The service was excellent, the mgr went out of his way to make us feel welcome, and happy. The ingredients were definitely carefully prepared, however BBQ should stay in the south, because the ribs weren't falling off the bone, although admittedly they were smoked. Great...More

We enjoyed two burgers and salads with margaritas. Recommended for those who don't want to spend too much.
