Grand Ole BBQ y Asado in North Park is definitely San Diego’s best barbecue option, without question. Brisket should be your priority at this outdoor-only, Texas-inspired spot, but keep an eye out for the Argentine-style asado and choripán (grilled chorizo sandwiches) too. Also, be in line when they open at noon because they run out fast.
