    Beef ribs are an art in this restaurant. This is worth the drive. The Texas ribs in Texas aren't better. Fun decor-- for baseball lovers, can you identify this picture?

    Drooling over baby back ribs and Memphis ribs. baby back are a little juicer and tender 🤤 sliced brisket are good. Skip the tri tip. Mac n cheese, collard greens, and sweet potato mash are solid.

    The HoundDog! Great, absolutely great pieces of meat. Top it of with their 'XXX' sause.. You wont be able to stop eating. Cool down afterwards with either the banana pudding or key lime pie

    oh boy, stumbled into this place one night from drinking at wurstkuche. I wish I had started the night here! beef ribs are to murder for. Sauces are tangy, not too sweet, perfect to my liking.

    It's all good. Tri-tip, brisket, baby back ribs. Oh I love the smashed sweet potatoes and you must have the desert (pie)

    Get one of the variety platters if you are in a big group, it's the best way to try out all their stuff. Pulled pork is a bit dry, porno sauce is a must

    Brisket was delicious and well seasoned. Wasn't the most tender I've ever had but was very good. Pork and beans and collard greens sides were both great.

    The lunch specials here are a really good deal. The pulled pork sandwiches and the sides are authentic. Park across the street at the lot.

    Beer braised beef brisket, Carolina style pulled pork and more conventional BBQ chicken sandwiches are all available here. The pulled pork is great, but the beef brisket has a juiciness to it. Read more

    We had smokey wings, Texas beef ribs, baby back pork ribs and pulled pork. All very nice. My highlight was the beef and the side of sautéed okra. Yum!

    Go early if possible to avoid the dinner rush. Get the pulled pork, with some vinegar and hot sauce. I loved the Mac N Cheese but you really can't go wrong with any set of sides.

    All of the sauces are delicious. The chicken wings are meaty and juicy - my favorite in the area.

    You HAVE TO try the Banana Pudding! It is hands down the best we have ever had, not bad bar b que either and we are from the Deep South so that is a compliment!:)

    Couldn't decide between ribs or pulled pork so I got them both. Wow, they were phenomenal! However, one of the best parts - the cornbread! Best cornbread I've ever had.

    The Memphis Ribs, mashed potatoes and Mac n cheese were bomb! Try to mix the hot and sweet BBQ sauces. Banana pudding was the ass kicker. Sooooo good.

    split one of the meat dishes, MUST have mac and cheese on the side, and grab a couple shiners with a date! if the lines long, bring a bottle of wine/beers and sneakily drink it outside while waiting

    In the mood for BBQ - this is THE place: start with Suicide King (shrimp) but do try to move on, don't just order 5 of those... Texas Style Beef Rib, Pulled Pork and Collard Greens constitute my meal Read more

    Personally, I think the XXX sauce is the best. The women are a very close second. They have the most attractive waitresses...at the West LA location, that is... ;)

    Dear god this place is amazing. Tri tip sandwich is fantastic and mac is out of this world. Banana pudding is also deadly.

    Kool Aid is a must. Memphis Style ribs were the stand out item on the menu! For sides - Mac and Cheese, Okra, Collard Greens, Pork and Beans - All Good! One of my favorite places in LA!

    Pork, pork and more pork! Order ribs and pulled pork and pour vinegar liberally all over the meat. Dip in the hot BBQ sauce--it's the best one. Great mac & cheese. I want some now!
