Look for the giant rooster on top of the place. It's located in a mall full of car repair places off the 101 freeway. I had a great tri-tip sandwich with some really great honey barbecue sauce! The barbecue chicken is also worth eating. Definitely will be back soon.

Ever pass the giant rooster on top of a building on the top of a small shopping center as you head north on the 101, just before Victoria? This is the joint and is it terrific. A friend strongly recommended it and we weren't disappointed at all. The front of the building has their BBQ located and usually one of... More

A friend recommended Marshall's and we were pleasantly surprised. This hidden treasure is a must go to. Authentic, delicious, large portions, and friendly help. I'll be eating my dinner for 3 nights.

The 101 was backed to a stop so we dove down onto the frontage road looking for gas but was waylaid by this BBQ place. Turned out to be some of the best BBQ we have had. We both had the pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw and beans. The pulled pork was so tasty that I didn't consider adding additional... More

You can't miss this place--just look for the 20 foot tall chicken on the sign! It's always a great sign when a barbecue joint has a smoker going outside. We were SO impressed with everything about our lunch here. We didn't know what Tri-Tip was, so the server let us taste it (yum!). She assured us that the 2-meat combo... More

I've only been once for lunch but it was pretty good. The link sandwich tasted good and was big enough. The potato salad was just okay. I will be back.

I've heard a lot about this place and tried to go a few times but it's always been closed. Finally made it and I'd say it was worth it. The Tri tip sandwich was very good but not as big as I'd have liked. The Mac and cheese was some of the best I've ever had. They smoke the meat... More

Stopped in for a business lunch. I had been here once a couple of years ago and was not to impressed but it wasn't my choice on where to have lunch. The place just seems a bit stale inside as if they are doing just enough and you should be grateful for that. Prices are a little high and most... More
