BBQ in LA
Hey folks! My dad is coming up for dinner this week and wants BBQ. I am in West Hollywood and we don't want to drive far, like say 3 miles or so. I guess it's between Bludso's, Baby Blues or Saddleranch. NOT looking for amazing cuisine, just what would be the most fun on a weekday night, with descent food. And something that would entertain my OC dad, that feels very "Hollywood". I'm leaning towards Baby Blues, even though I have never been there. Fun, lively, with BBQ. Thoughts?
Lots of flat screens so there will be games on. Good bar and fun scene. Food -- brisket, pulled pork, ribs -- better than Baby Blues (which i liked in the early years in Venice). One of Bludso's platters with meats, sides, cornbread, and sauces will be great for you and your dad.
I just went to Baby Blues in Venice tonight.
Brisket was tender and juicy. Peppery dry rub on the outside. Last time I had smoked biscuit was at Smoke City. Baby Blues was far more tender and juicy.
GF got the pulled pork. She had a home in NC and she loved the pulled pork.
Four sauces table side to choose from plus a bottle of vinegar infused with sport peppers.
Collards were not chopped much and were in a tomatoey sauce. Not bad for a BBQ joint but I prefer the soul food version better.
Yeah, this is more of a place to just kind of eat and not hang out at.
I have yet to hit up Bludso's.
