    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. Read more

    Bludso’s 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 Read more

    Really good BBQ!!! Call first and also place your order before going because the line can get really long & they get so busy they actually run out of food often times. Definitely a must try- worth it!

    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. Read more

    This place is awesome!! Don't let the line scare you away, it is well worth the wait. We waited for over an hour just to order, and I have no complaints! But calling ahead is recommended. YUM!!

    It was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, so you know it’s legit. They’ve opened a spot on La Brea now that serves alcohol, but if you want the original, head to Compton. Read more

    Bludso’s is a great place to get all kinds of barbecue, like brisket and ribs, but their chicken sausage and hot links are perfectly spicy and delicious. Read more

    Tonight was my first time here and it was delicious! Rib dinner w/ Mac n cheese and greens was great. Philips and woody's ain't got nothing on them. Worth the drive.

    The ribs are off the hook. They are my absolute favorite! The pulled pork sandwich is good too and it's massive.

    Take out only; no sit down area but it's so worth it. Brisket, ribs, mac n cheese....EVERYTHING was so good.

    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.
