“Stopped on the way home from Oregon”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Don't let this little place fool you. It tastes as good as it smells. Lil pricy at $12 a plate, and not the typical or ideal way a food spot should look inside (very cluttered). However, the couple are very sweet and maintain cleanliness in the kitchen and food handling. We would stop by again on our way to or from Oregon/Washington.

“Unexpected, Outrageous BBQ”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

My wife and I were passing through Weed on the way home to the Portland, OR area and spotted this little place... Yes, it's funky -- kind of a little Thai miscellaneous store with smokers outside and all kinds of stuff inside. But, wow! We ordered the pork back ribs and riblets plate and Thai creamy ice coffees. I'd take this barbeque over Podnah's any time -- that's how great it was. TNever had barbeque qith jasmin rice before...he couple who owns and runs the place are delightful -- as I recall, she is Lao and he is Thai. She asked us to sample some Thai cole slaw she was roking up... delightful.

“Kick Back & Enjoy !”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

I usually stop at the bakery next door - but the smell coming from the outdoor cooker was irresistible ! I had the BBQ tri tip with rice and it was excellent. Very good seasoning on the meat. The owners are engaging and fun to talk to. Simple layout inside and out for dining. Outside you have a beautiful view of the mountain !

“Worth Seeking Out”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

We are two Canadian tourists, holidaying in California, and we drove right past the restaurant en route to Oregon, and it didn't even register. On the return trip, we drove into Weed to find a spot for lunch, and found nothing of note, so we headed back towards the highway and fortunately had to sit through a red light, and then noticed the BBQ smoke billowing into the air at the Asian American BBQ directly across the intersection. A very un-prepossessing exterior, but we were so glad that we stopped in for lunch. Beautifully prepared brisket, and a great spicy green papaya Thai salad for a great price! The owners are interesting, attentive and love talking about their food. I can honestly say this was one of the unexpected highlights of a very wonderful trip.

“Just like home....”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

It's hard to miss this place when travelling near or through Weed, CA. The Thai owner has his BBQ setup in the parking lot next to the street (downtown - main drag). The place is not much to look at but the food is always excellent, made to order and affordable.
