  • Smoking Pig BBQ Company
    Before he opened the Smoking Pig BBQ restaurant in downtown San Jose in 2011, Paul Reddick worked as a semiconductor sales manager. Eventually, though, life led him to southeastern barbeque. It's a good thing it did because the Smoking Pig is incredible. Try a uniquely-named appetizer like the Chicken Lollipops, Redneck Sundae, and Potato Grenade. Settle on ribs covered with secret sauce and smoked for 4 to 6 hours or beef brisket rubbed with a top secret brisket rub and smoked for over half a day. Pulled pork is pork shoulder roast that is smoked until it literally falls off the bone. It’s then hand-pulled for sandwiches and multi-meat combos. Desserts are chef’s choice each day. And what would good food be without music? Check the Smoking Pig website for its schedule of live music. Open seven days a week.

  • L and L Hawallan Barbecue
    In case you were wondering, you read that right: it’s Hawaiian, and it’s barbeque. And, it is delicious! Eddie Flores Jr., one of the two founders of L & L Hawaiian Barbeque, came up with the term to describe the fusion of a traditional American dish, barbeque, with the unique Hawaiian flavors from America’s favorite vacation state. L & L became a franchise in 1988 when they expanded their one location all over Hawaii and in 1999, to the delight of those who already knew about Hawaiian barbeque, they expanded onto the mainland. One of the things that set L &L Hawaiian Barbeque apart from other restaurants, beyond their neat fusion of foods, is what you get for your money. Eddie and Johnson (the other founder) serve up traditional Hawaiian plate lunches, which include a serving of macaroni salad, a really big serving of the desired entrée and two servings of rice in addition to a drink. There’s a mini version—that IS a lot to eat—and there’s also burgers, a fun noodle bowl, and so much more! L & L may not be good if you don’t like barbeque or Hawaiian, but if you don’t know how you feel about the combo and you do like delicious, give them a go! You probably won’t be disappointed.

  • Famous Dave's
    Challenge yourself, and your waistline, with the massively mega-sized All-American BBQ Feast. While they’ll tell you it can serve 4-5 people, the generous servings of St. Louis-Style Spareribs, roasted chicken, beef brisket, coleslaw, famous fries, beans, corn and cornbread will have you wishing you could have it all to yourself. If sharing isn’t your thing, the Feast for One comes with a slightly smaller helping of all of the same delicious pieces, and you won’t need to feel bad about taking the last rib. Grab a brew and take your time, because the friendly atmosphere and vibrant experience (especially during a big game) will take a while to properly savor.
