No frill just Menphis BBQ

I heard about this place from Guy Fieri diners drive-ins and dives (Food Network). I am familiar with this side of town (Gardena) because I work there for many years. I never knew Jay Bee's existed. From the outside, its a little green shack with an outside patio. It is placed in the middle of an... read more

I saw this restaurant on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives quite awhile ago. Even though it's only one hour from my house it wasn't convenient to drive up there until yesterday. I went there at 3:30 PM. I could smell the barbecue as soon as I open the door to my car..heavenly!!! After arriving at the stand, I realized I was... More

Better know what you want before you order at the window, or you get yelled at to step aside. Great BBQ Tri. The Ribs are a bit dry and hard Employees at the window taking orders are impatient. They yell at the customers. There are a few tables. Most people ordered take out. Order medium spicy and you'll be OK.

The restaurant is off the freeway in south central Los Angeles. Nothing to draw you in as you drive by. But the barbecue is terrific! My regret was there was no place to eat it. The wait staff is friendly and willing th explain the menu. The rib tips are the best I have ever had. Next time I plan... More

I checked this out because it had great reviews on various websites and was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. I'm picky about my BBQ since I'm from Texas, but I must say it was surprisingly good. It is definitely Memphis-style bbq which is all about the sauce. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was excellent. The meat was... More

I go here when I need a bbq fix. I usually get the pork sandwich with hot sauce. They will ask if you want mild med or hot when you order. Get a side of beans or slaw too. And if you are really hungry the pies are tasty. The ribs are great too but a bit messy if you... More

I have been going here for almost 30 years and sometimes this bbq is the best and sometimes dry with very small ribs. You never can tell when its going to be good. The hot link dinner and the bbq beef sandwich are good though. People from all walks of life eat here from the suites to the hard hats.... More
