Porky's: My new fave place for BBQ

Hackenbush | Aug 6, 2006 12:04 AM

Just got back from a dee-licious lunch at Porky's, which is located in Inglewood on Manchester, right near the Great Western Forum. It's in an old drive-thru fast food building that was once a KFC but there the resemblance stops.

Great ribs. Great pulled pork. Great brisket. Great sides. And if you really want fried chicken, they serve the Golden Bird variety.

I had the smoked chicken and a side of beans. The beans are especially good with little pieces of shredded pork and finely chopped onions mixed in. My companion had the pork ribs (which I've had before and loved) and she was amazed how moist and meaty they were. She also had the greens and a side of fried okra and liked both. On the way out, we got more ribs and a pound of pulled pork "to go" for tonight and tomorrow.

I've been to all the local BBQ places -- Woody's, Phillip's, J.R.'s, J and J, The Pig, Zeke's, Outdoor Grill, Santa Maria, Dr. Hoggly's, etc. Some of them serve some pretty good food but Porky's is now my favorite.

No, I don't own stock in the place. I wish I did because I'm going to be spending a lot of money there in the future. Here's the website...
