Be prepared for long lines at the San Diego Airport. Phil’s BBQ has arrived! The super popular rib joint opened its newest location this week inside Terminal 2 at Lindberg Field - just follow your nose to find it. The unmistakable aroma of smoky mesquite and signature sauce will lead you to the tastiest and most savory ribs in town. Of course there are other items on the menu (as well as a full bar), but the succulent ribs are the star attraction, accumulating awards year after year.
Owner, Phil Pace, opened the first Phil’s BBQ restaurant in 1998 in the Mission Hills neighborhood of San Diego. It soon outgrew its home and expanded to a larger space at an alternate site. Popularity has been unwavering over the years. There are now five locations in San Diego County serving up the addictive BBQ, including baseball’s Petco Park, home of the Padres. So, pack some extra time into your arrival or departure at the San Diego Airport. Experience the mouth-watering chicken, ribs and sandwiches locals have enjoyed for years. It’s the perfect recipe to lure you back to America’s Finest City again and again.
Phil’s BBQ at the San Diego Airport is open every day of the week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In a hurry? Grab the "El Toro" to go – a delightful sandwich of sliced tri-tip, seasoned, char gilled and smothered with Phil’s famous BBQ sauce.
