Izzy’s Café, known for their Southern Smokehouse BBQ in El Cajon keeps popping up on the radar. I’ve driven by this corner café for many years without giving it much thought, that is, until people continually raved about the brisket. Okay, it’s near Second and Broadway (an intersection just to get through) but deserved a stop. After ordering baby back ribs and the brisket, I was hooked.
The BBQ sauce is tangy and made in house along with the deep fried pies, baked beans and corn fritters.
Meats are cooked in the smoker for 12-15 hours and diving into the red saucy meats is plentiful for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
