This registration statement registers additional securities of the same class as other securities for which registration statements filed on Forms S-8 relating to BBQ Holdings, Inc. 2015 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) are already effective. Pursuant to Instruction E to Form S-8, we incorporate by reference into this registration statement the contents of (a) the registration statement on Form S-8 (File No. 333- 204015) that we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 8, 2015 relating to the registration of 350,000 shares of our common stock authorized for issuance under the Plan, as amended by Post-Effective No. 1, (b) the registration statement on Form S-8 (File No. 333-208261) that we filed with the SEC on November 30, 2015, relating to the registration of 350,000 shares of our common stock authorized for issuance under the Plan, as amended by Post-Effective No. 1, and (c) the registration statement on Form S-8 (File No. 333- 226816) that we filed with the SEC on August 13, 2018 relating to the registration of 300,000 shares of our common stock authorized for issuance under the Plan, as amended by Post-Effective No. 1, in each case in their entirety and including exhibits thereto. This registration statement provides for the registration of an additional 500,000 shares of common stock to be issued under the Plan. These 500,000 shares represent an increase in the number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the Plan, which increase was approved by the stockholders on June 16, 2020 at the annual meeting of stockholders of BBQ Holdings, Inc. As a result of the foregoing, the number of shares of common stock reserved under the Plan is now 1,500,000.
