For the last month, I've been watching progress on Salinas City Barbeque toward opening. The restaurant has taken over the former location of Smalley's RoundUp. I'd noticed the sign painting underway on April 6, shown here.
And, I've made a point to stop by when I'm in Salinas to check on opening plans. The owners also operate Trail Dust in Morgan Hill.
I understand that the soft opening was yesterday, May 2. The official opening will be Tuesday, May 4. Hope to hear some reports!
