Bull's Smokin BBQ's pulled pork is the best in town! The servings are generous, it tastes awesome and the service is great. We visit here often and are always pleased with our meals.

Went to Bulls last night as a recommendation from our sister in law and it was great. The server was wonderful and the food was great! We were able to bring our dog to their outdoor patio space which was so quaint. The macaroni and cheese was delicious too, a must try!

Honestly, it's over priced for the meats if you order a la carte but the sandwiches were fair. The pulled pork was by far the best meat while the brisket was surprisingly a little dry and flavorless without adding bbq sauce. Casual atmosphere and good service.

We found this restaurant while browsing TripAdvisor. It is off the beaten path but well worth the trip. The service was great and they have an outdoor seating area with a big screen. The beef brisket and beef ribs were cooked perfectly and had a nice even smoky flavor. Used the sweet bbq sauce they offered and it paired well.... More

I like my pulled pork with a little more flavor, but the pork was tender and moist. Plenty of beers on tap and the onion rings were great. The... More

Well clearly Phil's is the gold standard for barbecue in San Diego, so that's how we compare every other barbecue place. Phil's isn't amazing, but it's really good. But the thing about Phil's is you're going to wait in a long line, then you're going to search for a table, and need to find a seat in the tiny bar... More
