Loved Chicago for Ribs in 90045. Especially LOVED the side of cornbread, so good it could be dessert. BUT...C for Ribs is gone; closed a few month ago, and replaced by something called West Coast Grill...which is absolutely horrible. TriTrip sandwich was awful, and the...cornbread a mere tasteless shadow of its former self. ANYplace is better then this...More

Chicago For Ribs is great. The place is large and super clean. You can get take out or delivery if you want. The service is great if you are seated or ordering to go. They have great specials---always look for a coupon. Their onion rings...are so great, you must try them. They come in a big ring in the middle of the table for sharing. Their baby back ribs are so amazing and we love their beans. To share try the World Famous Chicago Feast at about 70$. You get baby back ribs, St. Louis pork ribs, chicken, Chicago wings, chicken strips (kids will love them) shrimp, fries, beans, corn on the cob, onion rings and cornbread. It so much food. For us it feeds 4 people, but it depends on how hungry you are. Have the best time.More

When a restaurant is new and exciting everything is fresh and hot and zesty. Great ribs, barbque chicken and corn bread. Well, unfortunately Chicago for ribs has lost its appeal and it is sparsely eaten at. As a result the foods not so fresh. You...can taste when chicken or ribs have been reheated. We used to frequent this place..More

Food portions were large, served warm but a little too fatty of meats. We went with a party of 5. The baby back ribs were good, as well as the st louis ribs, but the beef ribs were not so tasty. The chicken was the...best. Everyone enjoyed their beans. The mac and cheese looks like a velvetta dish - I do not recommend. We say trays of onion rings go by that looked very tasty. Portions are pretty big, so we did not order appetizers or dessert.More

Chicago for Ribs is about what you'd expect from a BBQ restaurant in LA - not bad, but not great. The menu offers many choices; I opted for the half-rack of St. Louis style ribs, which came with two sides and my choice of cornbread...or dinner roll (I opted for cornbread). The ribs were a bit greasy and the sauce was rather runny. The flavor was OK, though. If you're from BBQ country, you'll be disappointed but you could do worse. I had the beans and mac & cheese as my sides. The beans were in the same watery sauce. The M&C was an alarmingly unnatural shade of orange-yellow but surprisingly tasty. A saving grace of this establishment is the service - very polite and attentive. There is a parking lot adjacent to the west side of the building. On the night I visited, the lot was unattended and parking was free. However, I drove by later in the week and noticed there was an attendant collecting $5 from patrons of other establishments in the area (still free for Chicago for Ribs customers).More

We did have diner consisting of soup, salad and mix bbq sampler. All of above was quite tasty and portions were more than generous (we are not locals). Staff was friendly and we had our food on a table reasonably fast. All in all, good...option for a meal around this part of Los Angeles.More

There are several rib specials and combination specials for $14 that can't be beat. Today I ordered the BBQ chicken and Tri-tip combo. This comes with two sides (I chose baked potato and coleslaw) and also your choice of dinner rolls or corn bread.

One trip to Chicago for Ribs is just not going to be enough. If you can, go several times so you can try the entire menu (sort of like a scene from the movie Diner).There is not one thing on the menu that is not...the best. There is not one thing you won't want to try again. From the onion rings to any of the rib items it is all heavenly. You can take out or dine in. The place is not huge but there is plenty of seating. It is comfortable and not too loud inside. Once in, have fun going through the menu because all of it is great. They have these onion rings (you know a whole onion in curls) that are amazing and if you eat them all, you are done, so don't do that. Their corn bread is wonderful with butter. Every side dish is the best. I love their beans and so will you. Their meats, be it pork ribs or BBQ chicken is fantastic. You can ask for a mild sauce if you want or you can have it super hot. It is all great. Chicago for Ribs has a great lunch combo plate that is a good price and has a little of all sorts of things you will want. They give you a lot of food so you might want to share some sides along with one combo plate. It is not usually crowded and we have never had a reservation--whether they take them I do not know. On your way out get a bottle of their BBQ Sauce. The service is fun and friendly. You will love it, all of it.More

My dining companion enjoyed the Rib Combo special. It's a great deal for lunch - three different types of ribs - along with two sides at a reasonable price. I enjoyed the Chopped BBQ Chicken Salad. And we both enjoyed the cornbread! We also enjoyed...the BBQ Sauce so much, we bought a bottle to go.More

Chicago for Ribs is a comfortable spot to enjoy good barbecue or other food of your choice. It is just north of LAX and not far from the beach.

Great tasting ribs at affordable prices in a clean, well appointed restaurant would seem ideal, and for me it was. Why the place isn't crowded all the time is a mystery to me. Maybe it's the location. I hope this review helps because the place...deserves it.More
