Red Smoke Grill has the best that I have tried so far. I think there is a Kinder's in town as well which is probably good. If you do Red Smoke make sure to try the tri-tip sandwich with the chipotle/corn salsa/spread. (My fav)

Yelp has the top listed as:
Dickey's BBQ
Kinder's
Red Smoke

Red Smoke won the Best of Awards this year.

I like Armidillo's up Santa Rita, right past the 580 overpass.

I've had good BBQ at Red Smoke, Dickeys, and Kinders. I like the Tri-tip best at Red Smoke.

Unfortunately, Kinders is about as good and close you'll get to good BBQ here. We lost Rodericks BBQ years ago and since then it's been scarce.

Red Smoke is good, but overpriced. Dickeys portions are just way too small for the price you pay, but the rolls are great. Overall, for price, quantity, and taste Kinders is the best here.

May I kindly suggest that you all stop eating meat? Thank you.

perhaps consider cutting the cheese...

Cholo must really be desperate to pull out a year old BBQ thread.
I couldn't figure the 1400 posts at first, with only 5 showing.
I go to Armadilo Willy's myself...something for the whole family,
Maybe Brisket could let us know what he thinks is best.

McRibs. Incomparable. Get them with the large super fries. Chocolate shake. Mmmmmmm. Our family stopped there and ate right prior to this year's Tea Party fest. Can't wait for next year.

I liked Sauces in Livermore, that was pretty good. Rodericks was supposed to open back up in that building, guess it will never reopen.
