Fire It Up with Local Barbecue

Calling all foodies to the fire! Downtown Anaheim’s Craft by Smoke and Fire features Texas-style BBQ and locally-sourced prime steak. Grab the Brisket Grilled Cheese Sandwich or Porterhouse Steak. Adding the Cali flavor to Texas in the historic MAKE Building is Jav’s BBQ. Drool-worthy meals that focus on meat mean you’re going full-on flavor and not as heavy on the sauce. The wood-smoked barbecue is manned by Anaheim native pit master, Javier Gomez.
