Grand Ole BBQ Y Asado To Team Up With Social Syndicate For Enormous East County Location

February 6, 2018

One of San Diego's top barbecue restaurants is gearing up for the launch of its second location. North Park's Grand Old BBQ y Asado is teaming up with local hospitality group Social Syndicate (The Local, Wonderland, OB Surf Lodge) for a second outpost, heading out to Flinn Springs in San Diego's East County.

Founded by San Diego native Andy Harris, a longtime pitmaster who learned his trade spending summers in Texas, Grand Ole BBQ y Asado has been lining up hungry patrons since opening its Central Texas-style barbecue hut in Fall 2015. The restaurant has been looking to expand for some time and has found assistance in Mina Desiderio's Social Syndicate restaurant developement group, known for such projects as Bootlegger, Resident Brewing, Wonderland, The Rabbit Hole, OB Surf Lodge, The Local Downtown & Pacific Beach and coming soon the second location of Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill.

The second Grand Ole BBQ y Asada is anticipated to open this Summer at the 15,000 square-foot lot that once housed Flinn Sping Inn in Flinn Springs, CA, about 30 minutes from downtown San Diego. The new BBQ destination will offer an extensive menu of Texas barbecue smoked meat available by the pound or in sandwich form, as well as comforting side dishes, a full bar, and plenty of outdoor entertainment, including horseshoes, yard games and frequent live music.

The new Grand Ole BBQ will be located at 15505 Olde Hwy 80 in Flinn Springs/El Cajon. For more information, visit
