Top two favorite BBQ pork rib joints in L.A.?
Please let me know your top two favorite BBQ joints in L.A. Favorite and runner-up in that order.
I see BBQ threads all the time but they get wordy. I don't want you to write reviews. I don't care about parking, service, chipped plates, etc.
I don't want to know who does the best Mac-n-Cheese, brisket, yams, just your favorite pork ribs -- baby back ribs, spare ribs, St. Louis ribs, Kansas City ribs, rib tips, small ends, whatever.
The only rule is if you don't see wood smoke, or a BBQ smoker, then you can't vote for them.
My number 1: Phillips -- Leimert Park
Number 2. Phillips -- Crenshaw Blvd
1. Bludso's -- Long Beach Blvd.
2. Phillips II -- Centinela Ave.
If caterers/vendors qualified, The Park's Finest would be #2 and Bigmista's would tie for #3.
JnJ Burger Shack & BBQ on Adams.
I agree with your rule about seeing the smoke, it's what turned me off of JR's BBQ on La Cienega a while back and helped me find JnJ.
9868 Garvey Ave, El Monte, CA 91733
I'm with you, Hershey:
1. Phillip’s (Chino)
2. Phillip’s (Leimert Park)
Go for the rib tips, mixed sauce on the side. Best bite, best flavor, best deal.
