A Santa Cruz original, Cole’s BBQ was established over 30 years ago by Tim Higbee in Aptos and Santa Cruz.
Finding our community in Santa Cruz, the restaurant now operates from a single location on Portola Drive just two blocks away from stunning oceanside views.
Loved by many for our aromatic grilled meats and popularized by our Tri-Tip Sandwich, customers have consistently chosen Cole’s BBQ for years for tasty, home-cooked barbecue that’s grilled fresh daily.
Visit us today for the authentic Santa Cruz experience and enjoy generously served barbecue that you can smell before you see it.
