5 BBQ Spots In Los Angeles That You Have To Try This Summer

It's finally BBQ season!

BBQ food tastes good throughout the year, but for some reason, it tastes especially delicious in the summer! It seems to be somewhat of an LA tradition to throw something on a barbecue when the sun is out and no trace of a cloud is in sight. As things continue to heat up, the pressure to invite some friends over a turn on the grill is on. But if you have no time and rather hit up a restaurant; you’re in luck! We’ve made a list of 5 of the best BBQ spots in Los Angeles.

1. Bludso’s Bar & Que

Originally from Compton, Bludso’s has now made it’s way to La Brea to shake up the local meat game. Enjoy this Texas-styled BBQ along with a brew or cocktail at the bar.

Location: 609 N LA Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA. See it on Google maps.

2. Horse Thief

Horse Thief is located directly across the Grand Central Market in DTLA. They aren’t playing around when it comes to smoking meat; be sure to ask for one of the more fattier cuts to truly taste barbeque the way it should be!

Location: 324 S Hill St, Los Angeles, CA. See it on Google maps.

3. Burnt To A Crisp Truck

This innovative food truck is making a name for itself when it comes to Los Angeles BBQ spots. If you happen to have the chance to try their truck out, go for one of the non-traditionalist menu items like the brisket quesadilla or brisket fries.

Location: 787 Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA 90021. See it on Google maps.

4. Baby Blues BBQ

The Baby Blues Venice location is now expanding to Echo Park. If you’re on the Westside and craving some Memphis-style BBQ “for the soul,” this is your go-to spot.

Location: 444 Lincoln Blvd, Venice, CA. See it on Google maps.

5. Maple Block Meat Company

Maple Block Meat Co is relatively new and can generate quite the line on a busy day. If you want to have a bite of their infamous Brisket then be sure to arrive early before they run out!

Location: 3973 Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA. See it on Google maps.
