This is a very unpretentious BBQ place,but the food is yum! We live all the ribs because all of the meat is cooked just right and falla off the bone tender..They have different levels of heat for the bbq,so everyone can enjoy. The sides we like best are the potato salad and baked beans. It is a bummer tjat the... More

I came to Jay Bee's because I saw this on DDD. I was really disappointed. The pulled pork sandwich had to much BBQ sauce on it, and the sauce was not great. The ribs where like jerky, very dry and tough. The chicken was good, coleslaw was very bland. It was really not work the drive to get over to... More

When people talk about BBQ and mention places like Lucille's or Dickie's, I just have to laugh. You can tell a REAL BBQ place as soon as you as you see it (some of you know what I'm talkin' about) and smell the aroma of true BBQ floating in the air. You don't go looking for the real BBQ experience... More

I saw an old show on Triple D and decided to go out and visit this place. The place is out in the industrial areas and isn't much to look at. I went in and you could say the same of the interior. I ordered the Baby Back Ribs with potato salad and cole slaw. The order came quickly and... More

I grew up about 3 blocks from this place, but have since moved to Texas. I am a BBQ snob; I admit it. Let me tell you, this is hands-down the best BBQ I have ever had in my life! I love pork ribs, and these ribs are fall-off-the-bone smoky tender goodness. The sauce is rich and flavorful. I usually... More

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 industrial area in the... 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.
