Bruce (Bruno) Davis and Frank Mongetta, two old friends and former army buddies, along with Frank’s wife Diane, had a dream to go into the restaurant business. They wanted to serve the kind of food they loved, backyard BBQ with large portions in a family-friendly atmosphere.
In July of 1997, Bruno’s BBQ Restaurant & Catering in Scotts Valley opened its doors to a flood of people and has been busy ever since. Over the years, Bruno’s has earned many wonderful restaurant reviews and awards. Among them are the Santa Cruz Metro “Goldies” Silver award for Best Barbeque every year since they’ve been open as well as the Scotts Valley Chamber of Commerce 2002 Business of the Year. Scotts Valley Banner voted 2007 Best Rave and Fav BBQ Restaurant. Bruno’s also supports the community in the way of donations to many of our local charities & schools all year long.
In 2002, Frank Mongetta passed away. His wife Diane, along with her new partner Rosanna Herrera, now run Bruno’s BBQ Restaurant & Catering “The Original California BBQ”. The two ladies are determined to keep the founding spirit and dream alive while adding their own unique flair and ideas as they successfully go forward and grow. Something Frank would have been proud of.
Just this past couple of years Diane has decided to move on to greener pastures and left Rosanna to continue the legacy. So in the time honored tradition of Bruno’s Rosanna takes this opportunity to invite you to come home to Bruno’s Come home to the Original California BBQ!
Bruno’s BBQ is now open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. We are happy to offer dine-in, take-out, corporate and large party delivery, or full service on-site BBQ catering for any occasion.
