Anybody have a "secret location" ribjoint? I promise, I won't tell anyone... Just look for me and all my friends there on a regular basis if it's good!

  1. I've had the best ribs at Bandera's in W.L.A. on the corner of Wilshire and Barrington. I think they're owned by Houston's, but soo much better! Everything on their menu is absolutely delicious!

      Houston's!?!?! May as well get your ribs at Claim Jumpper. At least a rack of beef ribs at Claim Jumpper will feed you for three days...

    2. Try Barbeque King on the corner of Sunset and Figueroa. It rocks!

      1. Since others of my old favorite marina/venice haunts have apparently disappeared, anybody know whether Benny's BBQ is still going? On Venice, very near the marina. Tiny little storefront, next to a rather non-descript Irish bar. Best ribs I've found. Pre-marriage, pre-mortgage, used to eat them at least once a week.

            Relax, Bennies is still there and smoking away. It is not as consistant as it used to be 15 years ago but what is? It has occasionally been great but usually it is really good or good. It usually depends on the amount of smoker time the food gets and how much of the meat scraps get thrown into the beans.

          2. Dr. Hogly Wogly's in the valley and Cecil's Ribs on Pico in West LA.
