Join Buckboard’s BBQ & Brew, for an afternoon of grilling with pitmaster, Chef Misael Balderas, and owner Fadi Shihadeh.

Bring your questions, and get ready for a fun afternoon. And for those who would prefer to enjoy Buckboard’s ready to go deliciousness rather than grilling their own meal, be sure to order curb-side pick-up or delivery, Tuesdays through Sundays!

About Our Host

Buckboard was created about 30 years ago as a mom-and-pop catering company to create deep-forging memories filled with joy, laughter, and great food. After successfully catering thousands of events — owner, Fadi Shihadeh, decided to open the Buckboard’s Barbecue and Brew restaurant so San Diegans and visitors alike could have the same experiences as those of our larger parties. He’s passionate about bringing the Buckboard experience to the local community. After all, the fondest memories are made when gathered around the table.
