If you need a BBQ fix, this is always the Best!

Phil's BBQ in Point Loma (Sports Arena area) is the best, if you like BBQ Chicken, whole or half or BBQ Ribs, Corn on the Cob, beans or cole slaw, and drink, you got it here, but this is the BEST by FAR of any around the atmosphere pops, the line can get long coming in, but they know what they are doing and it will move fast, and you get your food fast. Once seated and eating, the waitress will drop by your table just to make sure all is going well and stand there and chat with you, make jokes or whatever.

Packed with fun people, free refills on drinks self serve, and by the way use the water trouph to wash up in the middle of your meal and/or after. I know I get it all over my face and hands so I need to go there at least two times.

I know you will love this place.

Phil's. Ah, Phil's! If you haven't tried Phil's BBQ on Sports Arena, you've been missing out. O U T! Phil's moved 18 months ago from his Mission Hills location to a new and improved great place. The food is still the same old - same old great, that is! A terrific selection of tender and perfectly seasoned beef, pork and chicken, plus all the traditional trimmings. And beer! Plus, the locale is fun, easy and comfortable, with plenty of parking. The staff is always upbeat, with positive demeanors, and seem genuinely pleased to serve you. So, get over there, already!

Being relegated to the sidelines is not always a bad thing. Phil’s Barbecue on Sports Arena Blvd. has some of the best side dishes in town. Being the lone vegetarian in groups of friends and relatives, I often find myself in restaurants catering to meat eaters, but most places have at least one thing that I can eat, and that’s ok by me. The social aspect of eating out is usually more important. That being said, I often order the one vegetarian item on the menu and eat it, good bad or otherwise. Phil’s Barbecue is a nice exception to the one menu item rule. They have eight vegetarian side dishes, plus a veggie burger and salad. And Phil’s is a fun, energetic place to go. I used to frequent the old Phil’s location in Golden Hill. It was a tiny, funky hole in the wall that was always crowded and had difficult side-street parking; although that was all part of the enjoyment. I love the new location in the Sports Arena area. It’s still funky and fun, but it’s much larger and has a huge, friendly staff, making it much more efficient for the large lunchtime crowds, and there’s plenty of parking. I even hosted a baby shower at Phil’s for the father of the baby. They don’t take reservations, but the staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. Phil’s has the best onion rings around, they’re huge and beer-battered, not the wimpy little breaded onion rings found at fast food joints. They’re great with ranch dressing, ketchup or the drippings from your barbecue sauce. Most of the side dishes come as either a small or a large serving, but trust me, the small servings often serve two or three people, especially with the case of the onion rings and the delicious fresh cut fries. A person can make a full meal out of two or three side dishes. The same can be said of the veggie burger (make sure to order it with the works, onion, tomato, cheese and barbecue sauce) and a salad. Phil’s makes excellent fresh coleslaw, macaroni and potato salad. But you can mix it up with a baked potato, fresh corn on the cob, or steamed veggies. Phil’s is not just a place for meat; it’s a place to meet.
