Wow!

Great BBQ!!! Don't let the outside fool you or you will miss out. Large plates. Good sides. Sauce is terrific. There are few reviews but this is great food. We will be back next time we're in town. Drove out 15 mins from downtown LA. Right off I-10 west.

This is a little bit of a triangle place at the intersection of La Cienega and Fairfax in Culver City. Very unassuming but probably the best BBQ on the westside of LA. Parking is tight, but if you look around you'll find something. Go at off hours away from 11-1 and 5-7 for the best shot at parking. Had the... More

Went in and tried the baby back ribs, with the baked beans, and cole slaw. Nice dinner. 6 ribs, and plenty of sides. Well worth the price. Was planning on having the peach cobbler but didn't have room. In fact, couldn't finish the last rib. Good food at a fair price, and good people waiting on you. Will go back.

The BBQ is fantastic, I really can't say much more about it than that. I had the pulled pork and coconut cream pie and it was spot on southern style deliciousness. It's unfortunate that this place has no room to grow, very little parking, and location that is very difficult to get to at dinner time.

JR's, is a hidden BBq joint on the border of C.C./L.A. But they have amazing BBq and the owner is truly someone who understands the meaning of service. Too many places in L.A. of lost that. Plus, the cobblers (southern desserts) are sinful!

So I happen to do business in this area, but had never stopped to lunch, my mistake. When I saw the Adam Richman's series on the best sandwich, I had to stop. So the other day, found me in Culver City. The parking is limited but make the effort. The first thing one encounters is the wonderful smell of barb-b-que.... More

A restaurant owner or manager could learn something from Rosie. We walked into this little dive in Culver City and we were greeted with a happy smile and a welcoming 'Hello'. When Rosie came to the table she introduced herself and even asked for our names. Rosie is a gem that restaurants worldwide could learn some lessons. The colors are... More

It's a small, intimate place that always smells fabulous- I drive by there several times a week and salivate each time. Good, smoky BBQ sauce, nice selection of meats, friendly owners. Difficult to get to if you're going the wrong way on the street, but good parking when you get there.

Great BBQ of the sweeter (i.e., not smokey or spicy) variety -- try the beef links. It's worth the heart attack.
