“To me it’s essential to give back and say thanks to the loyal customers and the San Diego community that has been the reason behind our success. I strongly believe in the support of local families and especially military families that sacrifice so much for the greater good of our country. Operation Bigs is offering a wonderful service by reaching out and providing that much needed support.”

Phil Pace, owner of Phil’s BBQ
