I decided to try a selection of meats from their BBQ range, and opted for takeout. I tried their sliced brisket, baby back ribs and pulled pork with popular sides of mac and cheese and chicken rice. I also had BBQ sauce on the side. This is one of the best BBQs I've had for a long time. All of... More

The place looks like a hole in the wall, but the lack of ambiance should not deter you. The rib was the best I've had on the west coast. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, and I'd definitely come here again.

Late lunch and had the razorback platter - baby-backs and pulled pork along with corn bread and mac n cheese. Added baked beans for a heavenly lunch. Sauces are great too.

We stopped by here after checking the TV Food map app and seeing it was featured on DIners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The lunch menu was still going but I was hungry so I tried the sliced Brisket from the main menu. My associate had the chopped Brisket. The flavor of the meat was Fantastic. It had a good 1/2 inch...

Had the baby back ribs which were amazing, fall off the bone meat and great flavour, sides were all home made and portions good sized. Loved the relaxed atmosphere and felt at home right away. Staff were friendly and helpful and service fast. Easy parking adjacent. Will definitely be back next time I'm in the area.

I was out of town for two months - in Barrow, AK (far far away, top of the world) and two weeks ago I started craving BB BBQ so badly. It's like that, the food is really just so good, the vibe and service equally great once you go it becomes a frequent place to eat. I am only blocks... More

The baby back ribs fall off the bone. Several different homemade sauces to choose from. I liked the sweet sauce and the spicy porno sauce the best. The creamed spinach I ordered as a side was phenomenal. I can't wait to go back and try the briskit. Prices are a little steep. Dinner for two with no drinks came to... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
