I keep hearing about this Secret BBQ spot in San Clemente, any ideas on how I get there and if it is worth going to?

    Looks like Rick's Secret Spot is closed now. I was thinking of trying this place out for the first time today, but I just went to the website, and saw that they've closed their doors. I guess nobody has visited this place recently.

      Rick's Secret Spot is what you're talking about.

      The portions are huge, the sauce is good.
      The blueberry macadamia cobbler is incredible.
      My office gets lunch takeout from there once in a while. Tasty food for sure.

      It's hard to find but I'll give it a stab:

      exit Pico from the 5 fwy and go east about a mile.
      Turn right on Calle Amanacer
      Left on Calle Sombra.
      It dead ends into a little office complex (veer left).

      Rick's is back there. Check hours though, because it's in such a strange location.
      Here's a review I found on them:
