Grand Ole BBQ Y Asado And Social Syndicate To Bring Central Texas BBQ & Entertainment Venue To East County

Grand Ole BBQ y Asado, known by locals for its Central Texas Barbeque, announced plans to bring its famed BBQ to a second, much bigger location in Flinn Springs, in partnership with Social Syndicate. As part of the collaboration, the teams plan to create a quintessential Texas-style dining and entertainment venue – a first of its kind in San Diego.

Andy Harris, one of San Diego’s culinary marvels and BBQ master, opened the original restaurant Grand Ole BBQ y Asado in North Park, where he continues to sell out daily, thanks to his 20-year commitment of mastering flavors and service. The restaurant has gained a reputation for ‘the best BBQ in California’ since its opening in 2015.


The new restaurant, Grand Ole BBQ, will be located at 15505 Olde Hwy 80 just off the I-8 in Flinn Springs. It will be an all-encompassing family-friendly entertainment venue with BBQ, live music, horseshoes, retro jukeboxes and more.The new fast-casual restaurant will be a destination for locals who want to experience something that’s never been done before in the city and a place where they can go and spend the day.

The teams will be working on building out the venue and design over the next few months, with a slated unveiling for Summer 2018. In the meantime, locals can get a taste of what’s to come at Grand Ole BBQ’s North Park location, at 3302 32nd St, San Diego CA 92104.

We’re looking forward to seeing what they cook up at this new venue!

See you there!
