Needed to get my BBQ fix wall in SD. Looked up and found Cali Comfort as rated one of the best in town. They really delivered. Amazing real barbecue (smoked meats), awesome service by the staff, and really chill environment. Looking forward to visiting again

After hiking around SD National Wildlife Refuge we wanted a cold beer and comfort food. We sat in the bar and enjoyed the high tables. Didn’t notice the dog friendly patio which would have been nice, too. Several good beers to choose from including a...More

This place is really off the beaten track. So glad we found it and had lunch there. Delicious pulled pork, large portions and outstanding flavor. Very casual and enjoyable. Prices are very reasonable. Will definitely go back and try something different.

Located ten minutes east of Downtown San Diego, Cali Comfort BBQ is quickly becoming known to locals outside of East County as the go-to destination for Slow Smoked Barbecue and San Diegan Hospitality! At Cali Comfort BBQ in the heart of Spring Valley, we barbecue all of our meats in our Ole Hickory Smoker with select cooking woods after they have been seasoned with our specialty Cali Dry Rub. Passionate about remaining true to barbecue tradition, we have developed our menus for our Low -N- Slow Cali BBQ Restaurant and Catering Events to offer only the highest quality barbecue in San Diego. Since we smoke the traditional way, "low-n-slow" there are times that we run out due to increased cravings for great tasting barbecue. We know that those of you who understand the true art of barbecue realize that once we are out, we are out. We cannot smoke up another batch of great tasting BBQ until the next day. A general rule of thumb for our smoked meats are as follows:
