Hot City Barbeque in Los Banos
In another thread, "villadeste94" recommends the ribs and pulled pork at Hot City BBQ.
One of my friends passing thru yesterday sent an enthusiastic note recommending the same items as very good, as well as good sides, though the tri tip was too dry. It's only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and now I'm regretting not stopping here the Sunday I was passing through.
So I thought I'd start up this thread as a placeholder. Next chowhound who stops by Los Banos, please report in with an update.

I loved this place and can't wait to go back. Easy day trip from Salinas/MRY with some fun road side stands to break up the drive. Very easy to reach from the I-5 freeway
Interesting-- I've seen nothing but praise for WG in Los Banos, though I found the Wool Growers in Bakersfield inferior to Noriega Hotel.
We're taking a road trip from LA to Yosemite, then to Monterey, and down the coast back to Los Angeles, so I'm doing some preliminary chow research.
Seems like there's several interesting options in Los Banos. Never knew about LB Wool Growers. Our original plan was to drive up from LA to Yosemite and grab our Basque fix in Bakersfield, but since that's possible in Los Banos, I'm tempted to try something else in Bakersfield.
