It was the absolute bomb. Fires so crispy with the smokey, juicy, meaty brisket. Two forks and it makes the perfect date sharing item. It really is worth it. Delicious!
Classic cornbread! Yum
These ribs were amazing! Who knew I'd love these ribs this much. The flavor was the perfect amount of smoky bbq. And I love the sauce! So much meat
This pulled pork was delicious - moist and flavourful, perfect on bread or on its own! Excellent choices of sauces too.
This dish was amazing! The bbq sauce gives it just a slight kick and the brisket is so tender it melts in your mouth.
They are a super good meal to eat right after going to the beach.
The rib sauce was sweet and delicious! There was so much meat on the bone and little fat! I highly recommend these ribs! They are great!
These were the best ribs I've had in a long time! I will definitely be back to enjoy them agin.
Had this on a whim on a Sunday and was blown away at the quality of the ribs. There was tons of meat on each one and the sauce was great. Didn't expect to find BBQ this good on Balboa. Highly recommend!
Oh my goodness! These beans are amazing! I'll be ordering them every time. And even for my own home BBQ's!
I LOVE the chicken strips and fries!!!! This is by far the best restaurant in all of California!! The service is great and the workers make you feel like family!
This is hands down my husbands favorite meal! He talks about it all the time.🤤
This was a great restaurant right by the balboa fun zone! My wife and I loved the employees and felt like they met all of our needs. The food was fresh and was probably our favorite place during our stay in Newport Beach. It was extremely clean and was a really fun environment to be in. 10/10 recommend going.
After taking a stroll along the beach, I had time for a quick bite. The food was great, and the portions were perfect. Great area to visit. Canada loves brisket and slaw. Thanks!
These are delicious! Wow. I don't know what the sauce was but it was the perfect complement to the sweet, fried corn balls. I would come back just to have more of these!!
OMG!! These are amazing! What a great treat! My new favorite! Warning....you will not want to share😁
Fantastic ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. All of the sides are delicious. The staff are polite, fast, and professional. There is no better place to enjoy lunch in the Fun Zone.
I have been here a few times and there are so many great choices! I recently had the pulled pork meal and it was so delicious ! It has a great smoky flavor, so there is no need for extra sauce, but the sweet and spicy BBQ sauce is also great. The brisket and ribs are are very good choices. The staff is friendly and nice. You will not be disappointed!
This is a delicious, messy finger eating burger, that keeps me coming back for more. Add some of the Sweet & Spicy BBQ sauce and you won't regret it. A must try on the menu!
The burger was great! The meat had a great flavor to it! Will buy it again!
Great dish! Surprised to find high end BBQ in Newport.
We got the western dog and the pulled pork sandwich and both were SO GOOD!!!! We called in an order for pickup and the wait was 5 minutes.... no joke! Oh we also got a side of the Mac n cheese which was also delicious and has a little heat, a perfect touch! This was our first time and we will definitely be coming back soon. Thank you balboa bbq!!!!!
The service is great and quick! I've tried mutiple dishes, everything is delicious and well prepared. The manager Tyler is very tentative and professional. Overall eating here is a great experience. Best BBQ in town!
This was the best hamburger!! It was so freshly amazing and the service there was great!
The ribs here are awesome! Fall off the bone smoky manna from sandy beach heaven!
Best Mac 'n' Cheese! I live in a different state and every time we come to visit I always get this with their classic burger. So good!! Simple but so yummy!
