BBQ in or near Studio City?

Can anyone recommend good BBQ around Studio City? Looking at Google maps, some candidate places seem to be:

Uncle Andre's
Old Hickory BBQ
Uncle Flip's Smokepit
Studio BBQ
Mom's in Van Nuys

Never been to any of these. Thoughts? If necessary, I'll drive up to Bear Pit in Mission Hills, or to Hoggly Woggly.

  1. Of the ones on your list, the only one I've been to is Uncle Andre's, and it was good (although its probably been twenty years).

    My favorite in the vicinity is Kansas City BBQ in NoHo, on Magnolia east of Vineland. Great links and brisket, ribs OK but not great.

          Great burnt ends, d-bag owners. Douse your ish with BBQ sauce before leaving.

                Tomorrow will be a great day for the Ir-ish.

                (okay, I should quit while I'm ahead.)

        2. I really like Boneyard Bistro. It's on Ventura....I'm guessing technically in Sherman Oaks.
          Nice wine and beer selections, too.

          1. re: perk

            though boneyard will cost you 50 to 60 per person, and the other cue joints listed will be more like 20 to 25 bones.

            1. re: kevin

              Kevin - come on now, the cue alone will not cost you any more than about 20-25 bones, it is the sides, the booze, and the other temptations that run up the tab. The other places just don't even offer them.
              If you resist the tempations, then the prices are close to being comparable.
              And to OP, the Studio BBQ has been closed for about 3 years, and in its place is a restaurant that has now been closed for nearly one year.
