Befitting the Bay Area’s penchant to glam-up even the humblest of crafts, Everett and Jones’ motto, emblazoned across the top of their website, is “Cooking up a real good time.”

The family affair has been in operation since the early ‘70s, slangin’ sweet sounds with their live entertainment while you eat. Their barbecue sauce, which they sell on their website, can be found on their house menu which features a rib dinner with smoked pork ribs made with Super Q seasoning over an oakwood flame, a yardbird glossy with juice from an open-fire grill, of ribs accompanied by sides of greens, yams, slaw, or baked beans.
