Waited over a year to try this place out after driving by and it smelled sooooo good. Being older and in the military, I've been ALL over, tried lots of different styles of bbq... this place though, the food does not match the smell. Bought just about 1 of everything off the menu for my wife's b-day. Bbq chicken, average to slightly above ave (for cali), beef ribs, GROSS. I burped/repeated those up for 3 days after that night and gave the rest to the dog, the sides were better than the main foods. The pork ribs were average. The bbq sauce is nasty tangy and has greasy bottom of the pot flavor. Pulled pork sandwich was decent quality like the bbq chicken, though if a bbq place screws those 2 items up, they shouldn't be in business. This place in NOT worth 1hr plus wait. If you are in the military or from out of town, don't expect what other's say, people in SD seem to sacrifice their taste buds going here making it a trend.

so i live 3 hours away from this place and for several years my friends have come to this place, coming back to share their stories and pics with me. even after hearing of ridiculous waiting times (weekends usually) they always give me the best ratings for Phils. I finally tried it this past weekend and i was speechless. The bbq here is the best in San Diego and the wait staff was top shelf quality; helpful and sincere and gave their attention- to every detail. I ordered more than I could handle and this was so i can try more things all at once. i am def going back there again whenever i visit San Diego!!
