We randomly searched "best BBQ around San Leandro" and stumbled upon Emil Villa's Hickory Pit. Being in lock-down we have been trying to vary our local cuisine. We were definitely pleased with what we found. Price was good. They had run out of chicken but the person on the phone swapped a half rack of ribs (slightly more expense) ... read more

My family has been coming here since the chain started, and I myself have been coming since I was a newborn.

It's been awhile but with covid decimating the restaurant industry I want to support local restaurants as much as I can.

I've always loved their burgers and this one did not disappoint! I see they've moved to shr

Had pork chops for breakfast, not something I'm used to. Served margarine instead of real butter. Service was very good though.

This place is good when you want some to go ribs on a budget. My kid loves the ribs with their BBQ sauce, garlic tots and onion rings. The price is right when your always on the move and the pick up process was no problem.

Absolutely recommended! The food is incredible especially if your into ribs, I went with a couple co-workers and we were beyond content with the service, food, easy access parking and no long wait for the food either. We are going back the next time we are in the area for sure!

My husband and I come here for breakfast at least 3 times a week.  The food is always good, cooked the way we like it and heat hot. The wait staff are courteous and continue to check on your food needs.  Waitress, Miss Theresa is one of the best!  
The diner is very old school, could use a little updating but we love

Food was very good and our waitree was great. I think her name Mison. I apologize if i got it wrong. She is the only reason we have co.e back. Owners have beed rude when we had several problems in the past. We like to give our business to local businesses. We do try.

The BBQ here is great, especially the ribs! I feel it's a hidden gem unless your family knows about this place because it's been around since the 70s. The sandwiches are good too. I didn't like the fries. They just felt so heavy from oil. The staff was great! They help each other out, they communicate with customers, check in very of ... read more
