Fodor's Review

During peak hours at San Diego’s most popular BBQ, lines can be long for diners craving heaping portions of fall-off-the-bone baby-back ribs, moist pulled pork, or huge, crispy onion rings. The Toro tri-tip sandwich made the 2012 list of America’s best sandwiches compiled by Travel Channel celebrity Adam Richman. The hand-cut fries and other traditional sides at this friendly dining spot are favorites and BBQ fans love the sauce, but don’t bother asking—the recipe is secret. Don’t be discouraged by the line, it moves quickly. Carry out is great for picnics at the nearby Mission Bay beaches and parks. There are Phil’s inside PETCO Park and in Santee and Rancho Bernardo as well.
