We had the pork ribs and it was pretty good. I wasn't sure about the sauce so the waitress asked if I wanted to taste the spicy sauce. I did and then made my decision as to which sauce I wanted; however, to my surprise,...More

What you get from JR's is simply good BBQ--- tender and tasty with selectable spice levels from mild (perfect, with a slightly sweet bite) to spicy (pretty blazing hot but addictive). Nothing fancy here--- an L-shaped counter and small set of tables--- but a bunch...More

Called two days ahead for a mid-afternoon pickup of two slabs of baby back ribs. Arrived at the time specified. Waited 10 minutes to move to the head of a 3 person line. After some initial confusion about the order, waited another 15 minutes for...More

This is a little bit of a triangle place at the intersection of La Cienega and Fairfax in Culver City. Very unassuming but probably the best BBQ on the westside of LA. Parking is tight, but if you look around you'll find something. Go at...More

Went in and tried the baby back ribs, with the baked beans, and cole slaw. Nice dinner. 6 ribs, and plenty of sides. Well worth the price. Was planning on having the peach cobbler but didn't have room. In fact, couldn't finish the last rib....More

The BBQ is fantastic, I really can't say much more about it than that. I had the pulled pork and coconut cream pie and it was spot on southern style deliciousness. It's unfortunate that this place has no room to grow, very little parking, and...More
