Since Phil’s BBQ is already so well reviewed I decided to hit up Cali Comfort BBQ for some ribs and fights. UFC 190 was going down and I felt like having some USA chants while destroying some ribs with my bare hands like a savage. They charge a $5 cover for the fights and the crowd seems a bit more sketchy than I’m used to but I had no problems.
Parking was insane because of UFC 190, but the staff got us a spot in no time. The tritip was beautiful. Smokey, juicy, delicious, and tender. Everything a smoked tritip should be. The ribs, however, were a bit disappointing. It fell off the bone nicely and was not dry, but the BBQ sauce was lacking and the flavor didn’t amaze. For the value, you get a lot of food and a good atmosphere to enjoy with friends. Although, it’s not the best BBQ in the city. 3.5/5
