Our way of BBQ... it's life!

We try to pay homage to the regional BBQ Joints that scatter the Central Coast of beautiful California. We keep it very simple… use the highest quality meats, simple dry rub, then slow cooked over natural red oak… No Freezers, Microwaves, Ovens, or liquid smoke!… Just FRESH quality  everyday.  Wherever you are from you have your favorite BBQ joint. In most places BBQ is at least as important as religion if not more so. BBQ is not just firing up the grill and slappin’ on a steak, it is a culture, a way of life. We are trying to bring that experience to you here in Atascadero. We proudly serve fine quality natural meats that have been dry rubbed and slow cooked for hours over natural red oak pits. From our humble beginnings at our roadside pit to our new restaurant space; our passion and love for food is something we hope you will feel and taste in every bite of our food. The smile on our customers faces and silent tables with the occasional moan and sounds of     smacking lips, are the reasons why we do what we do. Welcome to Scotty’s!
