Fodor's Review

At peak dining hours, the line can be hours long for diners craving Phil's baby back ribs, the pulled pork, or the huge, crispy onion rings. Adding to the restaurant's reputation and allure is the fact that one of the specialties, the El Toro tri-tip sandwich, was included in Travel Channel celebrity Adam Richman's 2012 list of America's best sandwiches.
