Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill confirmed to Eater that they're on the prowl for their first location in San Diego. "Wood Ranch is looking there (San Diego) and in other markets in a broad way to see whether we should expand and where," said Alejandro Benes, a partner in the restaurant chain which has 14 locations in Southern California. If they land here, Wood Ranch could give popular Phil's BBQ a run for their money, as their two methods of "barbecue" are similar; Wood Ranch's signature two-step cooking process involves slow roasting meats overnight and then grilling and saucing them to order over a live mesquite wood fire. -Tierney Plumb
