I grew up in North Texas and have eaten BBQ in Tyler. We do know and appreciate good Que. When we moved to LA, we felt like we needed to try this place out. The story, IIRC, was that a dentist from Tyler retired out here in the Valley in the 1950s and opened a BBQ joint. I have no... More

I was here about 1 month ago. Last time I was here was 5 years ago. The beef ribs I ordered were fatty, and about 1/8 of an inch of meat on the bones. Bad BBQ . I know my BBQ. This place used to be really good. If diners keep showing up, the will keep offering poor bbq. Try... More

We shared the brisket, pulled pork, and hot link combo. Still had tons left over. BBQ sauces are good but the meat's natural juices are all you need. Fantastic! No extra charge for burnt ends. Love this place.

Been goin' to this place for 20+ years. Some of the best BBQ in the city. Nothing fancy, not cheap, but great tasting food. Located deep in the San Fernando Valley just South of Roscoe on Sepulveda Blvd. Worth the trip if for nothing else but the loaf of bread they serve and their "secret" BBQ sauce...enjoy.

I do believe this is ONE of the best BBQ in the valley. The food comes out really fast. And you have great options to choose from. It's a very casual sit down place. I love their brisket and all their different sauces. You really can't go wrong with this place.

It would be quick to pass the place by due to its small location, and not so appealing curb appeal. However, if given a shot is everything you've dreamed of and more. This place has the BEST food in CA no joke. The Brisket is my favorite, and the best I've ever had (and I've had it in many places).... More

Taken here by a friend who's been visiting for years and was not disappointed. The brisket was good and my husband had beef ribs, which were enormous. Our dogs enjoyed the bones for a couple of days afterwards. The restaurant may appear dated but the food is good and the cost very reasonable.

Surprising find in a very busy neighborhood. Service friendly and fast. Made recommendations that were on point. Brisket cut like butter. Nothing heavily sauced - you can add spicy or regular. Beans tasty, fries good and bread very yummy. Very clean. Will be back next time I'm staying at the hotel close by. Big portions too.

We're big fans of Doctor Hogly Wogly's. My husband and I ordered a trio combo: beef brisket, spare ribs and baby back ribs. The beef brisket was so tender and delicious! The spare ribs were good but we could have passed on the beef ribs; they were huge and meaty but just not as good as the other two meats.... More

I went to this restaurant for two reasons one it was written up in Westways Magazine and two that I had seen this place many many times figured it was a mainstay. I ordered the baby back ribs and beef ribs with baked beans and coleslaw. My wife had a rack of baby back ribs with baked bens and macaroni... More
