That Boy Good: A rub above

Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (CBS 8) - Anybody can open a barbeque restaurant, but it take special ju-ju to qualify as a rib joint. That Boy Good in downtown Oceanside definitely makes the cut.

"It's a telltale sign of what is coming down in Oceanside and how busy this place is going to be once everybody finds out how great this place is," Mark Millwood said.

Mark was raised in Mississippi, bulked up on his mother's cooking and cut his culinary teeth in corporate America. Now, alongside his wife Kim, he's home cookin' on Pacific Coast Highway.

The ribs are smoked and rubbed down with the house sauce, which is Coca-Cola based.

TBG's menu is small but mighty.

"I would rather do a few things great, than a lot of things mediocre," Mark said.

Everything is made from scratch, from collard greens to beans.

"We've got the collard greens. We hand pick those, cook them down with a little house-made bacon, a little crushed up pepper, onion, chicken stock, lemon juice. So they get this rich, deep, smoky, barbeque flavor. It's just ridiculous. It's so good," Mark said.

And out of this pint-sized kitchen comes a cholesteric nightmare of epic proportions: the dirty fries -- home-cut fries, covered with macaroni and cheese sauce and smothered in pulled pork. It's the perfect finger food for your big day.

"Last year, we did weddings on the beach. We do corporate events all the time," Kim said.

Consult your cardiologist and come on down. This joint is pure pork pullers' joy.
