Barbeque 152 – Gilroy, CA

Thanks to the Mercury News for pointing out a BBQ Joint I missed. It’s called Barbeque 152 in Gilroy, California.

From the article, “The menu is short and tidy: The meats offered are pulled pork, pork ribs, tri-tip, chicken, hot links. The sides are potato salad, coleslaw and beans. You can mix and match the meats and sides to build your own plates in one-, two- and three-meat combos (from $7.99 to $11.99) or buy them in larger quantities (such as full racks of ribs or tri-tip by the pound). Or you can chose have the meats served in sandwiches. Combo plates are served with slices of grilled garlic ciabatta. I opted for the two-meat combo ($9.99), with pulled pork and a hot link. The hot link was plenty hot. I mean, make-you-sweat hot. But it sure was tasty, thanks to all that time on the smoker. It struck a nice balance.”

Here’s a bit more from the piece,”The 152′s decor is down-home chic, with twine and clothes-pinned calico hankies strung across the windows, reminiscent of Trail Dust in Morgan Hill. The tables are covered in, of course, red gingham tablecloths. And the wall decor reflects the place’s devotion to the hog, with pigs peering down on the dining room. You order at the counter and wait for your number to be called. Help yourself to the utensils and condiments. I know that barbecue is casual, but I admit I missed having real plates instead of the disposables on which the food is served.”

Sounds like they are real deal low and slow. Have you been here? I’ll have to stop in next time I head North. You can read the entire article HERE

  1. Kevin,

    Stumbled on your blog through Google. It seems that we share more than our first names ;)

    I really like your site. There is a dearth of personal, honest reviews of BBQ joints on the internet. I’ll share your site with my blog and Twitter readers; I’m sure they’ll love it.

    Paper plates, no problem ’cause I had the elbows on the table and was just in heaven eatin’ those somokeylicious ribs! Food is out of this world. The only thing missing is a wash up trough for the messy fingers. “Wet ones” in this day!
