Ever pass the giant rooster on top of a building on the top of a small shopping center as you head north on the 101, just before Victoria? This is the joint and is it terrific. A friend strongly recommended it and we weren't disappointed at all. The front of the building has their BBQ located and usually one of... More

A friend recommended Marshall's and we were pleasantly surprised. This hidden treasure is a must go to. Authentic, delicious, large portions, and friendly help. I'll be eating my dinner for 3 nights.

The 101 was backed to a stop so we dove down onto the frontage road looking for gas but was waylaid by this BBQ place. Turned out to be some of the best BBQ we have had. We both had the pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw and beans. The pulled pork was so tasty that I didn't consider adding additional... More

You can't miss this place--just look for the 20 foot tall chicken on the sign! It's always a great sign when a barbecue joint has a smoker going outside. We were SO impressed with everything about our lunch here. We didn't know what Tri-Tip was, so the server let us taste it (yum!). She assured us that the 2-meat combo... More

I've only been once for lunch but it was pretty good. The link sandwich tasted good and was big enough. The potato salad was just okay. I will be back.

I've heard a lot about this place and tried to go a few times but it's always been closed. Finally made it and I'd say it was worth it. The Tri tip sandwich was very good but not as big as I'd have liked. The Mac and cheese was some of the best I've ever had. They smoke the meat... More

Stopped in for a business lunch. I had been here once a couple of years ago and was not to impressed but it wasn't my choice on where to have lunch. The place just seems a bit stale inside as if they are doing just enough and you should be grateful for that. Prices are a little high and most... More

I love great BBQ and Marshall's was a pleasant surprise. I got the beef ribs, tri tip and sausage, along with BBQ beans and sweet potatoes. All of it was really good, especially the mild sausage and sweet potatoes; the tri tip was a little tough. Nice little restaurant, but it's a little off the beaten path.

Tucked in an industrial complex, the first thing we saw when we drove up was the big black smoker in the parking lot. We knew we were in the right place. This is not a fancy restaurant, you order the food and take it out or go and sit in the small dining area (which has a distinctly old west... More
