  •   Best food and service I have ever had. They smoke their meat daily. Marco's recipes are outstanding and this is my go-to bar and restaurant. The drinks are amazing, as well as the vibe.  The service is more then you can imagine. This place deserves more than 5 stars!

    Food is outrageously good!

      Motorcycles, leather jackets, loud television with sports nonstop, picnic table-style seating set the stage. So if you like that, well, the food is pretty good (but at $17 for most sandwiches, it would seem a bit pricey for a place like this.)  
    I had the brisket sandwich with cole slaw. It had way too much mayonnaise but there was a proper portion of meat.  It just wasn't a stellar performance and with so many places to choose from I'm not certain that I'll be back. Too bad because Bbq dominates their menu and I love good barbecue.

      Meh. It's a bar and it has food that's kinda ok.

    The beer tastes strange, like the lines aren't kept clean.
    The service is pretty standard for a bar.
    Food is maybe a degree or two better than what most bars offer.

    Ribs and trip tip are what they're known for so we ordered both and they were, at best, satisfactory. Tender enough. Vague hint of smoke. Too much sauce. I ate it then quickly forgot what I was eating.
    Wings are sizable and juicy but the sauce was overwhelming. I'm always suspicious of places that over-sauce their foods. What are you trying to hide?

    We were heading north to Laguna Seca and had to stop for a quick lunch so yelp sent us to 101. I think next time, I'll look further down the list of search results.

  •   Great appetizers, food and beer! Wait staff was friendly and a nice relaxing vibe on the patio area. Adam is one of the best, always remembering our preferences, yet informing us one new items to try.

      Really cute and comfy place, menu and drinks were great. Word of advice to the employees, please keep your comments about the parties you just severed to yourself. I want to enjoy my food and drinks without you complaining about the large party you had to "deal" with moments ago. Be mindful of your customers, not the best first impression of this place.
