  • Their brisket is a paradigm of meat, beef that disappears so quickly that if it weren't for the feeling of satisfying fullness you might swear that you had less eaten it than dreamed it.
  • Talk about a hole in the wall kinda joint! Take your food to go!
  • Be a man and get the Texas Sampler. Eat it for 7 days.
  • I prefer the ribs over everything else. And check your order because they ALWAYS forget to include something.
  • Whatever you order, it will arrive steaming in a take-out box with slices of bread thoughtfully wrapped in paper towels. You can feast on it at one of the patio tables or you can hurry home to eat.
  • It was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, so you know its legit. Theyve opened a spot on La Brea now that serves alcohol, but if you want the original, head to Compton.

  • Limited soda selection. They run out of meat. Customer service is bad. Street parking. No tables. All orders are to go. Average meal is $15- $20. BBQ today was very good though. Just go for the food.
  • Even folks with the strongest of wills are unable to drive back up the 710 without sneaking in a few bites from the box warming the passenger seat.
  • Bludsos has been the definitive standard for Texas-style barbecue in LA for years, mainly on account of its meltingly tender brisket which when fresh out of the smoker is nothing but pure meaty bliss
  • good to try if you have not then you are missing out on some good BBQ - Clarence Chaney
  • First time here
