Description: For the past 17 years, BBQ lovers across San Diego County have turned to restaurateur Phil Pace to satisfy a singular craving: mesquite-grilled baby back ribs, beef ribs, chicken and sandwiches. Serving thousands of customers a day from a diverse clientele of skateboarders to Bentleys, Phil has built his foundation on consistency, quality, freshness, and friendly service. "We thrive on providing each guest with the 'Phil's Experience', which basically comes down to organized chaos," laughs owner Phil Pace. "The biggest reason behind our success is our loyal customers who have supported us and waited in line for a taste of BBQ for the past fifteen years. "Since opening its doors in San Diego in 1998, Phil's BBQ has served over one million pounds of BBQ sauce (enough to fill Shamu's tank).

Phil's WAS a five star, but he grew and I personally believe he change his BBQ sauce, maybe corn syrup to stretch it? I don't know for sure, just a little too sweet and it wasn't like that 15 years ago. Wonderful Blues music and very clean.

Was here about a year ago and fell In love. The food is fresh and the sauce is the best ever. Loved their cole
Slaw. Their chickless dinner with ribs gives you the best Of both worlds. Although the line can be intimidating, it's pretty quick. We began around the corner and sat down in about 20 mins. Good stuff
