Scottys BBQ Atascadero is authentic Central Coast BBQ, gently cooked for hours over local aged red oak wood. 


“Growing up in Atascadero, I loved to BBQ for family and friends about as long as I can remember. People around here know local BBQ, and that’s the only way I will cook it… In 2010 I opened Scottys BBQ Atascadero, and now I live that dream every day…” — Scotty Pierce

We had Tri Tip, BBQ Ribs, Beans, Garlic Rolls, and Corn – the food was a was a hit with everyone!. If I’m ever in this part of town again, I definitely plan on having a meal at Scotty’s!  > Stephen S.

Momma and I had our first dinner at Scotty’s last night. It was VERY good. It’s a delicate balance to get the meat cooked through, while keeping it juicy and flavorful. I’m not sure where Scotty gets his meat but it very nice. The 4 ribs were large and very meaty. He uses what appears to be a very spare dry rub (not much color) and you add your own sauce at the table. The meat flavor comes through great. I like me ribs this way. Beans were very good with big chunks of what appeared to be tri tip. Yum. Oh yeah, the bread – very nice. I had the pulled pork sandwich. Huge pile of wonderful porkiness with enough BBQ sauce on it to hold it together but not roll down your arm. Nice staff. Everyone was concened that we enjoy our meal and we did. Clean eating area, clean restroom.   Chuck D.

We have been looking for a BBQ worth frequenting and have come up short until we discovered Scotty’s.  This is truly the best BBQ in the north county.  We bought a rack to go for ourselves and another for my daughter and her family.  We were amazed at how perfectly the ribs were cooked.  They were most and uniquely flavorful.  My daughter and her family agreed.  They also had the beans which they liked.  We tried the Macaroni and Potato Salads which were both good.   Bill D.

I was finally able to try tis place out, it seemed that every time I was hungry and wanted to try this place, it was closed. I finally went in yesterday and got the 2 meat plate with tri-tip and ribs. It was amazing, the meat fell right off the bone on the ribs, the sauce was very tasty and the tri-tip wasn’t over cooked or tough. I am actually writing this review waiting for it to open today so I can go back.   Jason L.

We come in for the the tri tip burritos on Fridays. They are so good. The beans are delicious with just a hint of sweet. The rack of ribs was huge. If you are local, give them a try!  Karen Reyes

My six year old wanted ribs for dinner so I decided to try Scotty’s as my friends have been speaking highly of his food for the last few months. Ribs are six year old boy approved! He ate at five in the basket. I greatly enjoyed the tri tip sandwich as well. Anne Shatara
