"E&J's barbecue remains the pride of the East Bay… But even a tofu cutlet would taste good swimming in E&J's famous secret sauce, an irresistible blend of smoky tomato, tangy vinegar, and cayenne-laced complexity."

Peggy Nauts
San Francisco Magazine - 2000

"The sauce is very sweet, almost fruity and very smoky, with a persistent perspiration factor that builds with every bite."

"…mother's sauce, the fruity, red-peppery liquor that drowns each serving of oak-fired chicken . . . has been the key to their success for 16 years. I've been enjoying Everett & Jones for years. This funky, heavenly smelling joint serves up some of the most authentic food around. Popular with lots of different kinds of people, it has to rank as one of the best barbecue places in the Bay Area."

Sylvia Rubin
San Francisco Chronicle – 1989

"The atmosphere isn't the only thing that's REAL here, as you'll learn the minute you bite into one of Everett & Jones hot, hot, hot links . . . especially, if you ask for the fiercest of the three temperatures . . . your taste buds have been knocked senseless."

Sharon Silva and Frank Viviano
