LOVE the brisket! You can also order early for pick up later in the day because sometimes they run out. We always take friends and family whenever they visit to impress them with our hometown favorite BBQ place. Great friendly staff also.

Super flavorful and succulent. Indeed, they reached deep into my mind and served me the brisket of my dreams.

Our fav's are the brisket, chicken, Mac, and slaw. Also, the Smokin J is a must! This place is our go-to bbq. Simply the best! Josh and his crew are always so friendly.

The Smokin J

Easily the best BBQ in San Diego. The pork belly is so tender and juicy. The brisket is fantastic. This is what i get every time.

I am not a huge fan of BBQ, this food changed my mind. The brisket was so tender and juicy and flavorful, I could have ate my weight in this stuff. Don't even get me started on the slaw, I'm pretty sure there were no leftovers for my coworkers, so yummy!!!

TV Dinner - Brisket

Loved this meal! Great value and plenty of food! The brisket is always tender and the sides of Mac and cheese were great.

Pork Belly

Sure, their porky belly is listed in the "sides". But there's no shame in grabbing a few of these and making this your entree. Might be the tastiest treat on the entire menu. Best BBQ in North County.

Brisket Chili

This is the heartiest and most amazingly delicious chili that I have ever had! It is just full of chunks of delicious brisket. I cannot stop buying it! LOL...

Our favorite is the brisket and mac n cheese! We had Smokin Js cater for a family birthday and the compliments from family and friends was delightful and scrumptious. The cole slaw and pulled pork were flavorful and tasty. Would definitely recommend for your next gathering event. Service and quality all the way, thank you Smokin Js and Jessica was super helpful to us in organizing it all.
