Good BBQ food. The pulled pork and ribs are our favorites. My son likes the bacon cheeseburger also.

Our business group ate dinner here late on Sunday night. Even though the Place was empty at nearly 9 o'clock and looked like they were about to close, they totally hooked us up. Each one of our party of 10 enjoyed great draft and bottle beers, so I ordered the brisket platter while others ordered burgers. It tasted fantastic. Typically,... More

We have been eating at the Cupertino restaurant for over 20 years and feel it is as close to genuine Texas Bar-B-Q as you can get in California. The food is always smoked and slow cooked and the quality is consistent. Mid range on price, but great value for the food.

Armadillo Willy's is located in several places in SC County. The ribs are very good. They started in Los Altos, over 30 years ago and I've eaten at a couple of there locations. The food and service is always very good.

... it's not so bad as a brisket or chicken smoked flavor. Sauce is a bit thin and overall the kitchen-grease smells could use a top-down steam cleaning.

The selection is great. The tri-tip is perfect every time. It is realitively quick and a great place to meet up with friends or take the kids. Very casual and comfortable.

My friend had the ribs and brisket special with macaroni and cheese. She said it was great. The meat was very tender. I had the blackened salmon burger with a small salad. It was delicious.
