    1. re: I got nothin

      Burrell's was going to be my first call. It is in a residential neighborhood with outdoor seating. It is as far from a corporate chain as you can find. I did not care for the peach pie, but the rest of the meal was tasty.

      I do like Lucille's though, pretty meaty beef ribs. Closest one is at the District.

      For take out (and dine in too I guess), Joey's Smokin BBQ is decent. They had a dry rub and a couple of souces if you want to try out the whole spectrum. It is in the little strip of fast food places near the Tustin Marketplace movie theater (the old one, not the Irvine side.)
