Gorilla Barbecue in Pacifica

Gorilla Barbecue finely opened up on saturday on Cabrillo Hwy. Heard it is the best barbecue in Pacifica. Have any hounds tried it yet?

  1. Bump.
    I'm curious, surely someone tried it over the weekend, a penny for your thoughts?

    1. Isn't it the ONLY barbecue in Pacifica? Haven't tried yet--started to think it was never going to open. Will report soon.

        Yes, it is the only bbq in Pacifica. Yesterday about 6pm, the line was coming well out the door. I'll give it a week or so and then give it a try.

      2. We went there tonight and what a place. I hit there about 4:45. There were about a dozen cars and one firetruck in their parking lot. We ordered the 1 Meat Combo. That is 1 Meat, 2 Sides, Cornbread, BBQ Sauce and a nice piece of watermelon. You can see the smoke rings on the cut ribs. You get 3 huge but tender ribs with the dinner. The Sauce is on the side and is very good. Don't be a smart ass like me and order the Sauce "HOT".

        They have Pork Ribs, Chicken BBQ Beef, Pulled Pork Hot or Mild Links and a Philly Chese Steak Sandwich.

        In summary, we can't wait to go back but as word gets out, we'll just have a longer wait. Oh, they are closed on Tuesdays and are open all other days 'till 8 or until they run out of food.

          Did you happen to notice what time they OPEN? Are they open for lunch?

          1. re: Atomica

            I just checked and they open at noon. Don't try to go tonight as the lady said all they have left is the links. And this is at 6:00. The word is spreading.

            Thanks for the update. Do you know what time they open? Do they take credit cards?

              They open at noon and I don't think so on the cards. Remember that they are closed on Tuesdays.

            1. Tried it last month, passing thru town. Went for the jugular. Pork ribs and beef ribs. Bout 4 sides (mac, mash, greens, yams), cornbread too. Damn good eatin'. Sauce is on the side. Close to the South as you can get for 'cues. Rib size ain't as big as Rib Shack, but taste better.
