COVID-19 Updates from Cali BBQ

April 2020 Pickup Window

You can always order Cali BBQ online for pick-up or delivery.


Update May 2020: We appreciate the eagerness to get back in our dining rooms to support our restaurant.

For the last nine weeks we have worked tirelessly to find a way to safely serve our guests slow-smoked bbq, beer, and cocktails for take-out and delivery. We are still making improvements to that experience day by day.

As of now we will not be opening for partial capacity dining as we feel it will be too risky for our team and our guests with so much uncertainty in the new guidelines.

We truly appreciate the support and hope to continue to serve you in a takeout/delivery capacity until we open back up.

We are still serving slow-smoked BBQ because we want to make sure you can have the food you crave while practicing safe social distancing.

Thank you for continuing to support us by buying our craft BBQ online today.

At Cali BBQ we care about the safety of our staff and customers.

That’s why in response to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic we are taking extra precautions, in addition to our usual rigorous standards, to make sure our restaurant is regularly sanitized and staff are trained according to CDC and local health guidelines.

Our management is monitoring up-to-date information from local, national, and global health officials, and we will adjust our policies as needed to ensure we do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

We will always take extra precaution when packaging your meals and serving you food.

Here are some of our policies:

  • Tables, chairs, menus are cleaned after every use.


  • All staff are required to wash their hands frequently and as needed per County Department of Environmental Health standards.


  • Hourly sanitation of knobs, handles, counters, bathrooms, and other fixtures.


  • Staff who are not feeling well are asked to stay home and use their paid sick leave.


  • We offer mobile-friendly payment solutions to every guest to limit the use of paper and cash.


In addition to reviewing and changing our in-house procedures in response to COVID-19, we are putting additional resources into providing Digital Hospitality including online ordering, pickup, and delivery.

Safe Food Delivery and Pickup at Cali BBQ

You can always buy BBQ online at any time for pickup and also have it delivered to you through DoorDash or through our bulk ordering services.

We will continue to be in touch with you, our friends and guests, about this quickly changing situation.

Thank you for continuing to support our small family business.
