It’s another great day to be together

When the beer is cold and the pits are hot, people tend to gather. That’s a truth as old as time, and one that’s near and dear to our hearts. Grab a friend, a beer, and a seat, and join us in celebrating the power of fire and time in the most authentic way possible.

Restaurant Reviews

Smoked chicken, brisket, and pork were flavorful and perfectly cooked. But it's not just the meat, the side dishes are high quality and delicious.

Michael B.

The combo had me happier than a pig in you-know-what. Nearby my partner-in-crime gnawed on his pork ribs and, between bites, exclaimed how juicy and succulent they were. I had to rip a rib out of his hands to try a bite before they were gone.

The best smokehouse in Salinas, no question!
