The crew at Aptos St. BBQ have a passion for great barbeque, and have spent years and years mastering the process.
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.
Santa Cruz Sentinel
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.
John & Chris May
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.
