“Ribs”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

This place right on the PCH looks like it's been around for a few years and once you taste the ribs you'll know why. We had to baby back's, very tender but not over cooked. Family friendly. We will return on our next trip through.

“Great food, slow service”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

The food is very good and tasty. Great both for the adults and the kids in the family. Only problem is the long time you wait in order to get it.

“If you want to meet the locals...”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Do not screw around, this is a great locals spot. I watched MNF, had a few beers and met every member of the Pismo Beach tourist board (LOL). People in Pismo love there "home" - I learned about some good places to visit during my three day venture. Was not going to learn that at Applebees.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

My whole family loves Alex BBQ in Shell Beach just a few minutes north of Pismo Beach. The ribs are excellent. My daughter says she could just eat the sauce with a spoon!

“Pit-stop turned gourmet meal!”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We ate here on the way up to SF, and boy are we glad we stopped. Fabulous food at great prices! We had two young sons with us, and they were treated like princes. The french fries and ribs are amazing!
