hand built BBQ

About us

The Grand Ole BBQ was created to fill the serious void of REAL BBQ in southern California. What began as a humble idea to provide great BBQ catering to the San Diego area has grown into a cult favorite with a loyal following. Sure, you can get BBQ elsewhere, but most of y'all have never had what GOB is going to serve you. We're serving up some honest to God, delicious, wood-smoked, handcrafted, artisan BBQ. Smoked on a real BBQ Pit hand crafted from an up cycled propane tank in the great state of Georgia. 

The magic created at the original North Park location, Grand Ole BBQ y Asado, will have the opportunity to grow into a venue unlike any other in San Diego county in the new, much larger sister location, Grand Ole BBQ, in the Flinn Springs neighborhood. Featuring a huge, welcoming outdoor space with amazing live music acts in a hillside atmosphere with killer food and full bar service.

We can't wait to be your new go-to spot in El Cajon!
