Fab food with such a chilled vibe. Got the kids soccer team here..sat outside. Loved the pulled pork. The kids devoured the ribs. All the meats are great. The beer variety was awesome. We'll be back.
Not too many bbq joints outside Texas tend to impress me with their brisket...well Aptos St BBQ breaks that rule!! Perfectly done and served on a beautifully grilled piece of bread. The potato salad was on point and the little pile of pickled onions and jalapeños was perfect!!
Stopped here on a whim on our trip from Georgia. We have had a lot of bbq in the south. This is some of the best bbq we have ever eaten!
A fantastic spot for barbecue in the Aptos area. Whether you're looking for a lively outdoor seating or a cool live band to jam to while you enjoy your bbq, there's something here for everyone. The selection is awesome.
For date night we decided to go to Aptos St. BBQ and let me just say, BOMBBBBBB... Perfect summer evening! Also the beer bar had a really good selection, a lot of different beers on tap! I even got to have options on sours which usually never happens! We forsure will be going back!!
Oh, mama. It was a meat bonanza, each item with its own special flavor and appeal. The ribs were meaty and juicy, bronzed with sauce. The tri-tip, tender but with a bit of chew, was cooked just right. And I loved the fall-apart pulled pork and its ridges of crackling-rich crust.

The tri-tip, in particular, is delicious. The first time I had it—fat slices piled into a split bun like ciabatta—its flavor, juice retention, and the elastic pull of its grain astonished me.

This restaurant is a real gem, and definitely worth making a special trip to experience.

The meat was cooked to perfection, almost melting into the fresh garlic roll. I could go on and on, relying on metaphors and analogies to get my point across to you; but instead I will say this: go get it.
