Where can I find pulled pork/coleslaw sandwiches?

  • t

I have had such a craving for spicy/tangy BBQ pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw right in the sandwich- any places in or near Pasadena? I live in Highland Park but I doubt there'd be any in my hood. Good bread is also a must- no puny buns please. I like 'em solid;)

  1. The Pig (612 N. La Brea Ave., (323) 935-1116), makes an acceptable pulled pork sandwich. Probably not the best in town, but it will probably do in a fix. (And if you like pecan pie, their version is excellent.)

    1. I didn't try the pulled pork sandwich but everything we have had at Zeke's, including several varieties of the bbq sauce and the cole slaw were really good. It's in Montrose, not too great a distance from Highland Park.

      1. I second Zeke's in Montrose!

          I think the pulled pork sandwich is the best thing on the menu at Smokin' Mo's BBQ in Huntington Beach. If you make it down from Highland Park, do give it a try.

            I'm with you Professor, Smoke'n Moes sandwich is very good. They have excellent garlic fries and not much else.

          2. ahh, something I know about. Zeke's in montrose - I ride motorcycles almost every week @ the crest and the trip is not complete without a pulled pork delight. collared greens are not on the meun, but they have em' and they are great. homemade potato chips and apple sauce are also outstanding sides as are the sweet potato fries. not cheap, but worth it, imo.

              So do they put coleslaw on their sandwiches.

                I have to agree with Kurt on this one. We LOVE the pulled pork sandwiches with cole slaw at Zeke's. We live in Silver Lake and make that quick trip up the 2 often. In fact just the other day my man brought home a pulled pork sandwich and some Kansas City spare ribs for us to share and it was one hell of a dinner! The beans are out of this world too. And super close to Highland Park!

                  sorry, yes they do. they will also do just about any custom sort of thing you would want. Tell the owner Leonard that Kurt says hi!

                    They should be opening by month end at Santa Monica & La Brea in the new Target center for those not willing to drive to Montrose.

                      what about stewed pigs ear sandwich on Wonder bread. Can I get this stuff in LA? Anyone can make a pulled pork sandwich. Now a pig ear sandwich soaked with Tabasco sauce topped off w/ fruit punch and a slice of pecan pie... that's to die for.

                  We went with high expectations but were met with overpriced cafeteria fare. Not good at all! The decor is thrown together in a MOD sort of way. Very disjointed. No warmth. Seated at a table with slop all over it. Had to wait for a while for someone to come back and clean it up.
