Reviewer: sam from Santa Barbara, CA
service can be hit or miss, i live down the street the morning/afternoon is always on it and very helpful the evening guys could care less. i love the lunch special the fancy pork is awesome.. i like the sides also , the other reviewer didnt like the potato salad i think its great and get it everytime the green beans and jalapeno beans are also great... the restaurant is always clean and the free ice cream is a nice touch.. a fine addition to the ellwood area.

Decent BBQ but everything is ala carte and it can add up., 10/5/2016

I've eaten at the Dickies on Ventura Blvd in Woodland Hills last May and loved the ribs. There they had combo plates and I recall 2 meats and 2 sides with a soda was about $15. Here in Goleta all the meat is ala carte and a 1/2 rack of ribs is $16! I assume 4 ribs, I hope a 1/4 is possible. Maybe next time as their ribs are the meatiest I've ever had. Now the meats here are cooked and served dry (as in no sauce, it is really juicy otherwise). You add BBQ sauce, supposed to be 3 kinds. They only had the regular today which is fine by me but the spicy is real good. You come in the door and order from the person at the cutting board with some tantalizing looking piles of meat. The menu board faces in so you see nothing from the door or outside but paper menus are right inside the door. It is mostly sandwiches with some sliders and "Butcher" Tacos which are meat and sides mixed. There are also some dishes that are a mix of meat and sides like Beefy Mac and Texas Frito Pie ($8.99). There is a Caesar salad you can add meat too also. The sides are not bad for the individual size; $1.95 but the medium "sharable size" is $6.95, ouch. No Turkey here as in Woodland Hills a nice alternative. 9 sides available, 6 meats, it should satisfy any non- vegatarian tastes. Looks like bottom-less drinks when you eat there and free soft serve ice cream which really adds value to me. Today I had the chicken and cheese sandwich served on a soft bun dry. I knew the mac & cheese is decent as is the potato casserole, nothing special and no match for homemade but edible. However as a potato salad fan I tried theirs. I don't like it; too much mustard, too little mayo, too sweet, no celery I could detect. Not to my taste unfortunately. It was not a bad lunch for just under $11 out the door, the chicken was excellent. They also have pickles and onions next to the sauces. A sandwich with no sides costs as much next door. These are not IV prices/portions but considering how little BBQ there is locally I will be patronizing this place in the future.
