Nice laid back friendly place. No problem booking. We all sat out on the terrace which has no view but it's ok. The food is as you'd expect. Straight forward BBQ fayre. Good cold beer with hot tasty food - what's not to like?

I love barbecue. I mean, I *really* love barbecue. Barbecue is important to me. I take all-day road trips just to try out a distant barbecue joint; I have barbecue shipped to me, packed in dry ice, from great barbecue places around the country; I compulsively sample every neighborhood BBQ place I can find... which is how I wound up...

I consistently order the same thing, because it's consistently yummy. Tri-tip sandwich, beans, and corn on the cob with a soda. Yummy during lunch or dinner, and I like eating on their little patio.

Love that place! They give you home-baked corn bread! The beef ribs were really good, love the thick fries, the beans are a little too sweet for my taste. The BBQ tri-tip sandwich was also really good. Will definitely go back!

I probably passed this place 100 times and never paid attention until a friend took me there. Now I have been there twice in one week. Bigger than it looks from the outside this is a neighborly place that has great food at good prices. Friendly people who want you to have a great experience. I have so far had... More

I love the double stuffed potatoes which is a meal in its own but the bbq is also great here specially the ribs.I love the beef ribs but I have tasted everything else and everything tastes great. The only reason I give this place 4 stars is because I think it''s too expensive and I wish they would add some... More

Rib ranch...right on topanga blvd...more residential area looking than business. It's been here forever. Kinda country atmosphere inside. When they got the smoker working on the street...Big smile. I've had baby backs, hot links, as well as the sides. Hot links are kinda weak, sauce is ok, but gotta admit that the baby backs are above average... Tender, juicy, nice... More

I usually really like the food from here. Most of the time we order ribs and hot links and such to go. I guess my mistake was going to the restaurant. We walked in and sat down. We ordered relatively quickly, since we knew what we wanted. We had a 5 year old with us. We ordered an appetizer of... More

The baby back ribs were meaty and tasty. The barbecue sauce is my favorite of all time. Been going here for years. Literally my favorite that i have had around the whole country. The thick cut steak fries are awesome. And they even have chippy ice for their drinks that will remind you of your child hood. Great tip is... More

This BBQ restaurant has been in the San Fernando Valley for over 40 years. As many BBQ places come and go, this one has remained as one of the best. It is family owned and operated, from cook to waitress. Friendly service to the point of on our second visit they told us "you are now family". After trying several... More
