Like good barbecue. This is some of the finest in the county. Succulent chicken and delicious ribs are menu favorites but don't overlook the competition quality brisket & pulled pork and wonderful sides and desserts. Go soon. Go often.

Love the combo platter with the pork ribs and the tri-tip. The fries and beans are awesome. I wish the corn bread didn't have jalapeno peppers, but those who like hot probably enjoy it. I was disappointed in the mac and cheese, but the tri-tip...More

We went here for the fishbowl drink and had wings and the brisket street tacos. They were amazing! Would definitely go here again!

I usually order for take out. The wedding beans are the best with bits of brisket in the mix. The brisket is always a hit, very juicy and tender.

Located ten minutes east of Downtown San Diego, Cali Comfort BBQ is quickly becoming known to locals outside of East County as the go-to destination for Slow Smoked Barbecue and San Diegan Hospitality! At Cali Comfort BBQ in the heart of Spring Valley, we barbecue all of our meats in our Ole Hickory Smoker with select cooking woods after they have been seasoned with our specialty Cali Dry Rub. Passionate about remaining true to barbecue tradition, we have developed our menus for our Low -N- Slow Cali BBQ Restaurant and Catering Events to offer only the highest quality barbecue in San Diego. Since we smoke the traditional way, "low-n-slow" there are times that we run out due to increased cravings for great tasting barbecue. We know that those of you who understand the true art of barbecue realize that once we are out, we are out. We cannot smoke up another batch of great tasting BBQ until the next day. A general rule of thumb for our smoked meats are as follows:
