We are coming with friends to Pasadena from Texas for the BCS game on January 4th and want to take them to a top rate BBQ place in the area. We are all staying in Pasadena for 3-4 days and will be traveling by cab. A cousin who recently moved there recommended Jakes Roadhouse or Barnburner as well priced & the best BBQ. Any comments on these 2 or any local recommendations that will satisfy our cravings? Nothing fancy, just good value & barbeque. Will leave comments on any places that we visit. Thanks.
