About Phil's BBQ

onion rings, fries, ribs with an arm holding a couple forks

Since 1998, BBQ lovers across San Diego County have turned to restaurateur Phil Pace to satisfy a singular craving: mesquite grilled baby back and beef ribs, chicken and sandwiches. Serving thousands of customers a day from a diverse clientele of skateboarders to Bentleys, Phil has built his foundation on consistency, quality, freshness and friendly service.

"We thrive on providing each guest with the 'Phil's Experience', which basically comes down to organized chaos," laughs owner Phil Pace. "The biggest reason behind our success is our loyal customers who have supported us and waited in line for a taste of BBQ since '98."

Since opening its doors in San Diego, Phil's BBQ has served over one million gallons of Phil’s signature BBQ sauce (enough to fill Shamu's tank). Expanding from four employees to well over 400, Phil's BBQ has become an employer of choice in San Diego. In 2007, after the smoke cleared from the original Phil's BBQ location in Mission Hills, the restaurant relocated to a much larger space in Point Loma. Even with a change of location, the Phil's experience and menu remains the same: long lines of anticipation, an energetic, friendly atmosphere, fantastic food, huge portions and many, many, paper towels. In 2010, Phil's BBQ San Marcos opened with great anticipation from our fans in the northern portion of San Diego County. Santee and Petco Park opened in 2012, and our fifth restaurant opened in 2013 at San Diego International Airport.

Phil doesn't come from a long line of BBQ connoisseurs. Instead, he created from scratch a top-secret recipe for BBQ rubs and sauce while taking his dad's advice to only cook what he knows best and treat employees like family. Phil has been a pioneer of fast-casual dining since the opening of the first restaurant, giving San Diegans what they want - great BBQ. Taking care, satisfying cravings and supporting customers has always been #1. Because commitment to the San Diego community has been an intricate part of the journey, Phil's BBQ has contributed over one million dollars to various charities over the past seventeen years.

Phil's BBQ offers full service catering and has a fleet of high tech trucks fully equipped with hands free phones and GPS systems to ensure each craving gets satisfied.

Catering Menu FAQ's

About Phil’s BBQ Catering: Catering orders are for groups of 10 people or more. (Individualized meal orders are considered “take out” orders and are placed directly through our restaurants the day of the “take out” order.) For group catering orders, we pack each food item “family style” in separate, sealed aluminum catering pans, and provide all plates, cutlery, napkins, serving utensils and wet naps at no additional charge. Our catering pans can be easily arranged on your tables and lend themselves to a buffet line when your guests are ready to enjoy the food!

Q: How do I place a catering order? Simply determine how many guests you will be feeding. From the Catering Menu, select the meal or menu items you wish to serve and multiply the number of guests by the meal or menu item selected. (For example, our most popular item for catering is the “Best of Both” baby back rib and chicken meal with a choice of 2 sides for $15.49. Multiply the number of guests by $15.49 plus tax (and any applicable fees, delivery charges, or service charges depending on the level of catering service you desire—see below for options) for your total cost.
