    The tri-tip sandwich with grilled onions and cheese is legendary. If you're feeling brave, tackle the club sandwich, but allow for a nap afterwards. Owner is 100% the nicest man in the world.

    A great place to get BBQ in San Jose. They smoke everything on site, fresh and tasty. For $6.95 get a pulled pork sandwich with baked beans on the side. Big affordable portions. Read more

    One of the best BBQ joints in the bay area. Everything is excellent, but the BBQ club sandwich is a definite must try! Texas Pete hot sauce FTW!

    If you're trying to eat a little lighter, order the sandwich in the"Joe's size". Still a good size sandwich.

    And if you like Spicy, ask for the spicy sauce on the side. It's really tasty.

    People are not wrong. Pulled pork is the way to go and the baked beans are just like my grandma used to make.

    Ribs were cold, flavour wasn't anything to write home about. Mac and cheese wasn't actually macaroni (ziti). Keep going a little further down hillsdale to Armadillo Willy's

    Watch out for their potato salad. They don't keep it chilled or on ice. For those of you who don't know what that means...MAJOR food poisoning

    Ask for "Sweet Heat" sauce for more kick without burning your taste buds to death.
