If you blink, you'll miss this small barbecue place on Thousand Oaks Blvd. we have been ordering the tri-tip for family occasions for years. Everyone is impressed with the quality of meat and yummy sides like the chili beans.

And now there are a few dinners, which are nicely prepared and tasty. This place is very simple but the food quality is high and the value is very high.

TO Meat Locker has been a fixture in the area for decades. Came here in High School. The pork ribs are the best I have ever had in the country. Hands Down. You owe it to yourself to come try them.

A perfect setting for the 17 of us. Or even 2 of us. Great tri-tip and relatively inexpensive. The place looked ragged and old and not very clean. But so enjoyable sitting in the shade under the tree on picnic tables. We stopped here to...More
