Restaurant of the Moment: Oink and Moo

121 North Pico Ave

Fallbrook, CA


If you’re in the mood for the best BBQ in San Diego and you’re looking for some place that isn’t Phil’s, Oink and Moo is well worth the drive up to Fallbrook. Just make sure you make a reservation as seating is limited!

Oink and Moo primarily serves burgers, BBQ, and stuffed pork chops. If you’re looking for BBQ, get either the pulled pork sandwich or one of the platters. We recommend the rib sampler platter which comes with a little bit of everything: Baby Back Ribs, Pork Spare Ribs, and Bronto Beef Ribs. On the burger side of the things, you can’t go wrong with the Oink a’Doodle Moo, which is a burger topped with a fried egg, bacon, and your choice of cheese. You can also BYOB (Build Your Own Burger). The OINK brand on the burger buns is a nice touch! They also have specials including rare meats like alligator! For sides, we recommend loading up on the mac n’cheese, waffle fries, onion rings, tater tots, and biscuits. The sides are almost as delicious as the main course!

Oink and Moo is open Wednesday through Sunday for dinner – come hungry and bring the whole family!
