BBQ, like pizza & burgers is very subjective to each of our taste preferences. My brother-in-law coming in from Chicago wants to go to the coolest retro Rib Joint in SoCal. He wants great music, lighting, fun, vibe and above average ribs,sides and extras. What he doesn't want is take out from a window/counter otherwise I'd take him to places like Phillip's or Tasty Q. It's got to be sit down. We'll check em' all out. What's the scoop?
