Joey's Smokin' B-B-Q

Also 4645 Carmel Mountain Rd., Carmel Valley, 858-350-1317. It’s not Southern so much as SoCal “Q,” but the meats are genuinely smoked. Pulled pork offers reasonably credible Memphis-style flavor; ribs come in three versions. Inexpensive to moderate.

Good Q, with two kinds of sauces, sweet or spicy. I got the three sandwich sliders, the chicken was a little dry, the pork to die for, the beef - average. Great choices of sides, more than just traditional BBQ with fries and slaw. Will I go again? You betcha!
