Ben's BBQ

If you are a fan of hard rock, you will be familiar with Roosters on Clement Avenue. Roosters serves food during the live music shows and in the past, the food was BBQ prepared by Ben. Ben recently moved out of Roosters and started his own BBQ joint at the foot of the former Alameda Naval Base. The new restaurant is named Ben's BBQ.

The menu is the same from Roosters. The only difference is that the french fries are frozen and no longer fresh to order because the machine is not available.

The Pulled Pork Sandwiches are great to eat. The meat is tender, juicy and full of flavor. The BBQ beans are also good with a smoky flavor. The corn muffins have jalapeno peppers and the end product was overwhelmingly spicy. My first bite was a lot of heat and very little corn meal taste. It was basically a fire in my mouth.

Ben is very serious about his BBQ and I admire his quality for taste and texture. I will definitely come back for more. I hope Alamedans will embrace and welcome Ben in the Alameda food scene. His prices are fair with good value.
