Great place for dinner with friends. Meat is juicy, flavorful and tender, and the bbq sauce you can’t beat! Medium was perfectly spicy for me, but if you like it hot, the hot sauce option will make you feel it for real, right up to...More

I have to admit - JR's was typically a place I zoomed by, always thinking, 'I'll come back to it...' Today - I made the decision that I would DEFINITELY stop there. I was working on a photo-blog project along La Cienega, so the timing...More

Our family is visiting there for over decade and we were never disappointed. The tritip, brisket and links are the best ever. The Memphis style BBQ is hot and delicious. Nowadays we live in Israel and everytime we arrive to LA our first stop from...More
