  • 5 star review  Really like this place. We've been a few times, once you find it, it's a hidden gem. You park right outside and they have lots of outdoor seating. We take our bulldog and he loves it there. Very dog friendly! The staff are always polite and friendly, the food is great, always a positive vibe and attitude from other guests. Very reasonably priced too!

    5 star review  My fiance and I tried this place for the first time tonight. He recently heard about it from one of the owners, Brian S. Good BBQ! At first, I was skeptical, I thought, another BBQ place??? We drove over there from HB. We tried the BBQ Meat Sampler and it was all good quality meat, lean but also full of slow cooked flavor. Not drowning or hiding in the sauce... The sauce is mostly on the side, as it should be, which we loved! And, the BBQ sauce is very good. Just the right amount of heat! 🌶 We'll be back again soon! Be sure and check out this place, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

  • 4 star review  The food is good and they have a friendly staff. My wife is from the south and she especially loves to come here for one of thier sides, which you rarely find at other places. They call them corn fritters (aka corn nuggets).

    5 star review  The food is so good. The prices are fair and the portions are good. I did the three meat combo and spicy Chicken wings. I would go back again. Kinda hard to find, but worth it.

    5 star review  I come to this unique place often since I like the ambiance that is part of this restaurant. The staff is very loyal and experienced. The service is certainly efficient. Most important, the food they serve is first-rate. I came many times and I was always joyful. The expense is honest. I suggest this restaurant to all my friends.

Best Orange County BBQ

Southern Smoke, California Style

We want to show you what BBQ means to us & that authentic Southern BBQ isn’t just for the South!

  • REAL BBQ means indirect heat cooking instead of simply grilling.
  • BBQ means REAL flavor, derived from a special blend of woods including Hickory, Almond and Cherry.
  • BBQ means the perfect BBQ sauce – and we’ve got that covered. Our signature Beach Pit BBQ Sauce is so good, you’ll want to lick your plate!
  • BBQ is an experience – and, for Beach Pit BBQ, that means a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere where you can enjoy delicious food and spend time with family and friends.

 

“The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender and served on a soft white bun, just as they do down South. Only one complaint: ask for an extra side of barbecue sauce; the smokey and tangy sauce is that good.” -The New York Times

THE REAL SECRET TO AUTHENTIC SOUTHERN BAR-B-QUE IS ALL IN HOW IT’S COOKED — LOW AND SLOW — PILES OF AWARD-WINNING, LIP-SMACKING, FALL-OFF-THE-BONE GOODNESS SMOKED IN HOUSE WITH HICKORY WOOD FOR HOURS AND HOURS ON END.

We cook from scratch fresh every morning. From our legendary homemade mac ‘n cheese and sweet vinegar coleslaw to swoon-worthy mains, sides and desserts, we whip up Southern deliciousness just the way you like it — with the finest ingredients and a whole lot of love.
