Uncle Flip's (what the?)

Ok, being a transplant from Tennesse for over five years, I sometimes have a craving for some BBQ in LA when I am desperate for a taste like home. Don't get me wrong, I know that LA is not BBQ central but I try to weed out the good and bad places on sites like this. Since this place was recommended(Uncle Flips in NOHO), I wanted to try it out thinking that, hey it's recommended, it can't be that bad right? wrong. My God, it was the worst BBQ I have ever tasted,unedible, and I was a desperate for some, any kind of BBQ. I went in full stock and barrel, ordering the full slab of St. Louis Ribs for $17.99, my mistake, the ribs were burnt beyond belief with this sauce that takes like I was eating cigeratte butts. But I do agree that the sides were ok, but that was a little more than a spoonful of helpings. How depressing, I don't think I ever go to another BBQ place in LA again. Not worth the price or trouble for places who do not know what passes as BBQ in the real world. Stay away....stay far away..
