    review rating 5  I celebrated my birthday last night in this great place. Well we had a phenomenal evening and the restaurant was definitely the reason for this outstanding evening. The waiters contributed in a lovely manner, the food was appetizing and my buddies were so overjoyed. We shall surely visit again for more joyful events. Thank you very much.

  • review rating 4  The ribs and 1/4 chicken dinner was very good and the amount was very large. It however is a very small inside dining area. It has a large patio. You have to look for the entrance to the parking lot since there is no sign visible from the street.

    review rating 5  Really good BBQ literally tucked in the corner of a larger shopping center. Use a satellite view to navigate to on your very first visit. Otherwise you may end up within the neighborhood behind it. Either it's worth getting turned around. Really great food and friendly service too.

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.
