While a bit off the beaten track, certainly worth the drive - and one I guarantee you'll continue to do once you've experienced the cuisine - ranging from BBQ to Cajun with the best Catfish I've had in many years. Great specials and unique and tasty menu items across the board. Don't miss the Pecan Pie for dessert!

My family and I love Felix's BBQ. The atmosphere is great, the servers are fantastic , but the food is absolutely to die for. The sweet potato cheesecake is so amazing it is always sold out. They have the best corn muffins. We love going there and having Julie as our server.

We've been going to Felix's for years and we love it. The food is always excellent and the service is fine. If you're lucky, you'll see Felix himself there. He's a nice man to talk to.

Sunday night at 6:15pm, we were told the wait is 45 mins. The place was packed but we were hopeful that the great reviews on yelp would make the wait worthwhile (plus we didn't want to drag our 80 yr old parents outta there and drive around to look for a dinner place) so we waited. Others might have been... More

Felix's is the place to eat for authentic and delicious soul food. The sides are the best ever and the variety is spot on. Have some of everything; you won't be sorry!

The atmosphere was welcoming the moment we walked in the door. Groups, couples and singles were all enjoying being there. The staff was attentive and personable; and our server cheerfully responded to questions about menu items. The food was great - one of us like spicy food and one does't, and the menu labels were accurate when the food arrived.... More

We had a family gathering and wanted to try Felix's BBQ. We showed up with 9 people and they seated us quickly in a side room. Service was good once they figured out who was going to handle our table. Unfortunately for me the food didn't live up to the other reviews I read before going there. I had the... More

The food at Felix's is always delicious, service is great and from time to time if you are lucky, they have live music. In all the times that I have ate at Felix's, I have never been disappointed with the food, especially the catfish nuggets, they are delicious, never greasy and always cooked wonderful. Their fried shrimp appetizer is also... More

A friend recommended Felix BBQ to us. It took a while to finally get there as we live in Encinitas and Felix is in Oceanside, but when we did it was well worth it! So far my favorite are the baby back ribs and the baked beans, the chicken is good too., also like the coen bread muffins. Give it... More
