WHY Pork ribs and rib tips, a bit chewy, properly smoky and full of flavor; try the mixed sauce.
WHAT This local chain of South L.A. takeout-only rib joints has its rabid followers and ornery detractors; we’re somewhere in the middle, believing for one thing that even so-so ribs are still a gift from the gods. These are saucy and substantial, not as tender as some but quite tasty. Call ahead to order or you’ll have a long wait.
WHO A constant crowd of fans waiting for their ribs and jockeying for one of the few seats.
