Never misses a beat! Everything is awesome. The mac n cheese is excellent as well(always important). Pork or beef, you can't go wrong. Best bbq I've had in years.
Hands down the best in the Bay Area! The meat was perfectly smoked and was extra tender. The sides were awesome too...I recommend the Mac and Cheese.
An office in my building where I work was catered lunch by Oakland Smoke Shack, I had a chance to get some of the leftovers, what little there was and boy was it legit! ! Savory pulled pork with the right amount of smoke and the sauce was perfect! I would definitely order from OSS, I LOOK FORWARD to the next time an office is catered lunch by Oakland Smoke Shack. Delicious! More...

Excellent BBQ and the mac & cheese is delightful�
I always look forward to getting smoked delights from Oakland Smoke Shack. The ribs and pulled pork (my fav!) are tender, succulent and saucy! The owner Matt Graf is dedicated to his trade like no other and invests his love and passion into every dish. I have always found he continually strives to provide quality service along with the most delicious dishes that will leave your mouth wanting more!! More...
I've had several occasions to sample Oakland Smoke Shack's BBQ. Without question, this is some of the most perfectly seasoned and smoked meat you can find in these parts. Wish they had a storefront or a truck I could chase around. The ribs were perfect - moist but not soggy, tender but not mushy, just the right amount of bark and bite. Sauces and sides were on point. Looking forward to an opportunity to try them again. More...
The meats are made for your mouth. The sides are for in between meat bites. Do eeettt
I cry when I miss an Oakland Smoke Shack catered event. Because I don't get to see my friends? Well, that's disappointing. ...BUT....mostly cause I missed Matt's tasty, juicy, perfectly flavored meat. More...
I'm so glad to have the Smoke Shack around. We've had Matt and his crew cater a few events now, and I can say that you will be so happy to have his food in your belly.
His brisket and chicken are really amazing. The brisket gets that wonderful, flavorful bark, while being fork tender. The chicken wasn't dry, or mushy, but really juicy and super packed with complexity without being "busy". Moreover, in addition to the wonderful meat choices, the sides would impress any self-respecting vegetarian, including a delicious quinoa salad, amongst many of the more traditional offerings.
This may be better than the bbq from your uncle from St. Louis, who sits up all night next to a smoker with a 12-pack of beer to get the BBQ *just* right. But, in all seriousness, this is also a really solid crowd pleaser for almost any occasion. If I had access to this every day, my philosophical battles with my waistline would no longer be battles and just a surrendering of my will.
You will be super happy to have eaten this. More...

Oakland Smoke Shack has THE best BBQ. Matt is professional and has catered a few events for our gatherings. The BBQ and sides are deliciously well seasoned and the food always arrives fresh and still hot. My favorite is the BBQ chicken and quinoa salad. Thanks Matt! More...
To start I Love BBQ and this stuff is out standing but what got me was my daughter who doesn’t really like meat or anything BBQ’d, who is very picky ate a pulled pork sandwich, finished and asked for seconds. That right there says it all to me and don’t get me started on the sides, to many to name and only one word to explan”YUMMIE”. The only true way to find out is to get you some, you won’t regret it More...
