JV's Barbecue in Calabasas
A new restaurant, JV's Barbecue, just opened down the street (5659 Las Virgenes) and of course in a food wasteland like Calabasas I was excited to try it.
The verdict: Surprisingly delicious!
I ordered a bbq pork sandwich and my boyfriend a tritip sandwich, both came with two sides and between us we got garlic vegetables, mashed potatoes, and coleslaw. All of it was good! The owner seems like a nice guy and threw in some free garlic rolls, soda, and a little apple pie/cobbler thing since it was out first visit. Additionally, even though its in kind of a run down little strip mall looking place, it actually had a nice enough interior that we'll probably stay to eat next time even though we live down the street.
The only downside is that it's a little expensive, although after we ate we agreed it was well worth it.
Anyone else tried it?
Can you remember what the prices were? What kind of ribs do they have (Spare, baby back, beef, etc.)?
Oh, the Commons, there is decent eating I'm sure, but not for those of us on a "law school is eating all my money" budget, hehe.
LesThePress, I happen to have kept the take out menu, so I can tell you that they have beef ribs, baby back ribs, and spare ribs. A dinner of a half slab of baby back ribs and two side orders and garlic rolls is 14.95 and the BBQ pork sandwich that I got came with two sides and was 10, those are both dinner prices, the lunch prices are quite a bit cheaper but not the same amount of food it looks like.
