Our Story


Guy | Smokeyard SD


After a decade of creativity and discovery in the exciting LA restaurant scene, we decided to do what we love, in a town we love, and so Smokeyard Mammoth was born. Ten years later, we've brought Smokeyard to sunny San Diego to begin a new chapter.

Our style is modern California BBQ. All our meats are dry-rubbed, then smoked slow and low, till tender and juicy. From our roots in South Africa to our home in California, Smokeyard's menu is fun, familiar, delicious, and crave-worthy. From our kitchen to your table, or catered to your home or office, we hope you enjoy Smokeyard Modern BBQ!


In support of the rising minimum wage, a 3.95% surcharge will be added to all checks. It helps us to improve the pay for of our employees both in the dining room and the kitchen while continuing to provide the same delicious food, exceptional service and genuine hospitality we are known for. If you’d like more information about this decision, please email hello@smokeyard.com.
