I stopped by recently and have to say it was the best BBQ I’ve had in the Bay Area, though I wouldn’t necessarily say that is a high bar. I got the links, brisket, and pork ribs and all were served unsauced by default (which is my strong preference). All were quite meaty and flavorful, not intensely smoky, only the brisket was not as moist as ideal and was helped by a dunk in the sauce, which was not too sweet and sticky, my main complaint about many old-school Bay Area places. I had asked the woman at the counter what her preference was between the chicken and the links, as I am typically indifferent to both, but her suggestion of the links turned out to be my favorite meat in the bunch. They had a fairly grainy texture, with intense but not too spicy flavor.
In contrast, 4505 Meats has a delivery operation running out of the former Grand Fare market and the pulled pork and brisket I got from them were mooshy with little smoke or meat flavor, though the pulled pork was helped by the sauce included by default/necessity.
