This has to be the best BBQ in the San Gabriel Vally. Everything is excellent especially the beef brisket and the pulled pork. If you love beef ribs they have them available while supplies last so call and check.

A great BBQ place that is located in Azusa. The meat is tender. The plates are large. The staff is friendly.

Very good food. Had their baked stuffed potato with BBQ chicken, finally had their homemade chili made by the owner & wife only. Been here several times. Highly recommend this place. Have to go back sometime for dinner to try their 14 hr smoked BBQ ribs. Casual restaurant.

What can I say? Great BBQ. I travel to southern California often. Sometimes I'm not too close to Azusa, but I need to make an excuse to come to Canyon City Barbeque at least once per trip.

Great bbq service is ok when the owner isn't there but great when he is! No complaints other then that. Does suck sometimes they run out of tri tip or brisket but that's normal At a really bbq place like this just gotta plan ahead I go usually 3 times a month and will return again for sure

Been going here for years and is still the best BBQ and sandwich place around. There sauces are delicious and the hot beef brisket sandwich just melts in your mouth, their gravy is awesome on fries.

We ate so much food and all delicious. We ordered pulled pork, ribs, beans, fries & cornbread. Tip, order the nachos with salsa and warm melted cheese. They also have an extensive beer list. Most beer on tap. We recommend & will return. The ribs were in point!

My husband's work fed his crew this past week. He brought me leftovers. I have never had better BBQ, even reheated. The brisket was fork tender. the pulled pork was tasty and flavorful on a toasted bun.I can't wait till we can head to Canyon City BBQ in Azusa to have the full sit down experience!! 5 Stars definitely!!

When we lived in Glendora (before moving out of state), we would always go to Canyon City. Their food is beyond delicious and huge portions. The BBQ sauce is out of this world!
