Baby Back Ribs Full Rack

The Classic

Quite possibly the best burger I've ever had!

Texas Fries

We order 2 on a weekly basis, it's our guilty pleasure. It's one of my favorite things in the world. Add onion straws for an added level of awesomeness.

Diablo Burger

I have eaten all but the chicken. Don't like chicken myself. I eat the food a couple times a week. Love it. Death sauce on everything. Great bunch of people. The boss is ok too.

Brisket Stack

We love the food at Balboa Bar-B-Que. Great food at this family owned restruant. Well worth it. Great views of the harbor and even better bar-b-que.

Saucy Brisket

This place is a favorite of mine. I'm from Texas so I like my bbq. The meat is so tender and full of flavor. It's not sugary sweet and has just the right spice. So good!!!

Pulled Pork

The pulled pork sandwiches are just as good now as when they opened many years ago. They're the only place that has been good enough to stay in that location because their food is so tasty. To pulled pork sandwiches and burgers are the best, and never disappoint. Thank God for BBQ!

Bacon Bacon Burger

One of my favorite places to eat! Was not expecting this place to be any good, as the tourist food around here is usually not great, but I was so blown away. Ever since that first try, we've been ordering from here weekly. I recommended the Texas fries (and ask to add onion straws) and a bacon bacon burger. It's my favorite burger of all time now. The bacon is thick and you can tell it's made with love. All their food is delicious, fresh, and a good portion, but those are my two go-to's. I also have hated BBQ sauce my whole life, but I will eat buckets of their sauce if I could. This place is our little heaven, please don't ever close down! It's the highlight of our week. Staff is super friendly as well!
