Lots of choices from chicken to pulled pork to ribs, and 3 different size plates to please any appetite. Lots of choices for sides too, so picky eaters can probably be satisfied. There is a large full bar; I will definitely go back, when I don't have to drive, to try some of their craft beers! The only thing I didn't care for, was I didn't know to ask for the sauce on the side...and I prefer dry rub.

Took my Dad for his birthday lunch as he loves bbq., I'd eaten at the San Marcos location and have used Phils for catering event from San Marcos with exceptional results. Sadly Rancho Bernardo was a major fail. There were only half a dozen people there so not sure why our onion rings were ice cold as were pulled pork sandwichs. My Dad refused to let me return rings had he not I'd have let them no. I was so disappointed that they appertaining make up food in advance and let it sit till ordered obviously or it would have been hot and fresh instead of cold and greasy! I say drive to San Marcos, consistently good food. The lay out better, employees friendlier food better. R.B. Has work to do to get it together. Really impersonal, uncaring service.

On our way home from San Diego and actually by mistake we got off the freeway and found Phil's BBQ! We've been to the one in San Diego, so this was a treat! Of course we went for the ribs with a side of coleslaw and baked beans. The sauce is what is irresistible! It just enhances the beef! Clean, fast service and of course delicious!

It will take more than one trip to,getnthe hang of Phil's, there is so much to absorb before ordering! Very busy but moves quickly. Didn't wait more than 8-10 minutes for our order to be ready. There were 3 of us ordering 3 entirely different assortment of food. Very good for BBQ on the run, sides were more than 5 trips will,hit them all. Always a place to sit and, there is the option of sitting down and ordering. I was impressed, had plenty to eat and the price seemed right

Fast and friendly service. Reasonable prices. I ordered the half rack dinner but portions were generous and the quarter rack would have been plenty!
