We had the delicious shredded pork sandwich with fries and a drink. It was absolutely delicious.

I really enjoy this place! Food is delicious and appreciate the family atmosphere. I really appreciate all the little extras (free chips and homemade BBQ salsa, garlic buns, sides).

They serve all kinds of meat but the brisket is their signature dish and it's delish. I came minutes before closing and they only had a limited choice of sides, but the beans and homemade coleslaw are worth a try. Friendly staff (owners kids), spartan accomodations, several big screens round out the experience.

What You'll Get


In the late 1800s, thousands of Texans struck it rich when they tapped into veins of thick, dark, tangy barbecue sauce. Today's Groupon lets you share in this natural bounty while it's still hot from the earth: for $8, you get $20 worth of barbecue and more at Abbey's Real Texas BBQ.

Abbey's smokes its own meats to perfection in the flavorful fumes of green oak and mesquite, sealed in by the tasty technology of a hand-built Texas smoker. Shut up sass-talking stomachs with a sauce-slathered sandwich, kaiser buns crammed with stacks of one of six palatable proteins, including beef, chicken, pork, and turkey ($4.59+).

Gourmet gauchos can feast like the cowboys of yore with Abbey's Texas-Size Platter Specials, which combine a meaty mountain of barbecue with authentic frontier sides, including barbecued pinto beans, country-style potato salad, and slices of grilled Stetsons ($19.99–$22.99). Hungry herbivores can make meatless mealtime merriment with the Tenderfoot Vegetarian Special's multipart nosh of corn on the cob, macaroni on a toasted bun, and caesar salad ($10.49), and carnivorous patrons can add a touch of meaty realism to scale models of the Great Meat Wall of China with meat by the pound ($8.99–$16.99).

Family-owned, Abbey's has pinned men, women, children, and magicians to their chairs with the toothsome weight of its barbecue for more than 20 years. Measured in meat, that's more than 10,000,000 pound-years of service. Complement your meal with a beer sourced from a local San Diego brewery, or get sauced sans suds by slurping a tall pint of warm barbecue sauce.

About Abbey’s Real Texas BBQ


After moving to San Diego in 1987, Matt Shlemon and his wife Athena walked into a Texas-style barbecue restaurant and was floored by the smoky flavor. Convinced that this was the best food he had ever tasted, Matt scribbled a number onto a napkin, offering to buy the restaurant right then and there. The ensuing hours of negotiations paid off, and the Iraqi-born couple soon found themselves with their own business, Abbeys Real Texas BBQ.

The two traveled to roadside barbecue joints throughout Texas to learn all the subtleties of barbecue, and it shows in their attention to detail. Abbey’s Real Texas BBQ's signature beef brisket, for example, slow cooks for 18–24 hours inside a hand-built cast-iron smoker from Texas, which the Shlemons stoke with mesquite, green oak, and Red Hots, the candies that never stop burning. This succulent brisket shines in one of Abbey's signature sandwiches, the "Texas Chainsaw Mammoth" sandwich. The cooks top piles of Shlemon's beef brisket or pulled pork with bacon, a fried egg, cheese, onion rings, coleslaw, and fries along with healthy toppings of BBQ sauce and ranch. For a breadless version, they place piles of up to four different meets on one platter, complete with two sides of the guest's choosing.
