Driving to the airport, I found a very good new barbecue place has opened on Century Blvd, about 3 blocks east of the 405. It's called Bad 2 Da Bone; the address is 4565 W. Century Blvd, Inglewood. It's open until 3am most nights.
This is serious, authentic barbecue, better than the places I've tried in Crenshaw and Leimert Heights. The meat is tender (we tried the ribs and the brisket); the sauce is spicy, sides and desserts all fresh and high-quality.
