I was looking for a place to have lunch before going to a blues festival in Hayward and saw this listing. I have a commercial size offset smoker in my backyard that is used regularly to smoke food. That makes me very particular about the...More

Excellent, meat of the highest quality in all meals. I come back thinking about the bacon or the Dutch apple pie and they do not specialize in either one. It is if you are jus wanting a sweet crumple topping on your apple pie, you...More

We spent a week in Hayward Hampton. Each day we ate different meals. My family's favorites are Turkey Sandwiches, Yummy Meat soup, burgers, & especially the Baby Back Ribs smothered in their famous bbq red sauce! Delicious doesn't even describe the satisfaction we had from...More

Great BBQ and their coleslaw and other accouterments are good too--biggest serving of coleslaw I've ever had. Ambiance is tired, seems like they haven't upgraded the decor for a few decades. Service excellent on my most recent visit, and prices are in line.

Comfortable at the counter for one. Or take the family and sit in a booth. The service is excellent at either place.

Great BBQ and the usual accouterments such as coleslaw and beans, though we don't go often due to the lack of vegetables.

This place is a 2 min. walk from the Hampton and is an older establishment. The booths are a little worn, but the open kitchen looked very clean. I had a "special" which included a 3 egg scramble with spinach, mushrooms, sausage and a pepper...More

The BBQ guy needs to go! The meat is so dry!! Almost like eating beef jerky. This place is more for the old retired breakfast crowd not for the BBQ enthusiast. Really wish they'd fork out the money and change but there stuck in the...More

My husband and I eat out allot. We have come to Emil Villas for many years and never have we been disappointed. The quality of the food is surpassed by none. It is pricy but we do not mind because of the quality.
