Gracie's is a small charming restaurant in downtown Vallejo. It's atmosphere is pretty earthy and simple, but the food, especially the barbecue, is delicious. I love the the pork, tri-tip and chicken salad. Lots of meat, make this more than a meal. All the meals are substantial.The ribs fall of the bone, and the sauce is awesome!

We tried Gracie's one night before a show at the Empress. It was good but not great. Food was fine. Adequate but not raving BBQ. Atmosphere was not quite what we expected. Tables were sticky as were menus. We want to give it another shot before passing judgement. But haven't had the opportunity.

This place was simply awesome! Wonderful meat, and wonderful coleslaw! Recommended very highly. I would even say it is worth a detour off the interstate to come grab a meal here or a to-go meal. The cornbread was great, and the tri-tip, and the homemade pies were also fabulous. This place is a gem!

It's good food. Pretty straight-forward western BBQ. Big menu, cute cafe, ordinary table service. It's just too damn expensive.

This place is super yummy. I enjoy the smoked chicken croissant sandwich (not sure with actual name is) & the sweet tea. My husband loves the kitchen sink salad (vegetarian). Parking is always easy & the service is great. The ambience is nice. This is a great place to bring family or friends for a bite to eat.

My husband and I reside fairly close to this establishment. We figured it was time to at least try the food. I called in an order. This should have been the first sign of things to come because I was put on hold for three minutes. We ordered 2 rib plates with a chicken breast and a link on the... More

Visited with family for a good meal. We had spare ribs and pulled pork. Everything was very good and came super quick. Large portions. Potato salad and coleslaw were good, pasta salad less. Iced tea is recommended. Corn bread yummy Reasonable price.

I went with co-workers for a quick dinner after flying into town. I had a half plate of the chicken, it was more of a roasted chicken than anything I would call barbecue. The green beans were inedible, the potato salad good if you like mustard (I do), the cornbread decent but the butter was ice cold rock hard. Overall... More

I eat here about once a month. Not because I don't like it but I have trouble not over eating. The ribs are fall off the bone and the Cornbread excellent. I don't know what they call it on the menu but a client recommended "That Meat Salad Thing". Huge amount of various BBQ meats on top of a large... More
