El Paso BBQ in Tarzana

Good ol' American BBQ is often a matter of taste and style. Do you like it sweet, smokey, spicy? Do you prefer it Kansas, Missouri, Texas or Southern style.  And these are just a few of the variations out there. 

Cooking methods, sauces and rubs all play a role.  But I think the most important foundation for great Q is the quality of the meat.

The key to the food here is quality. The ribs are succulent, the brisket and the steaks are tender, salads are crisp and fresh.

I particularly like the spareribs, and really good ones are hard to find. That's why I have trouble ordering anything else when I eat here - these are the really good ones.  Most of my friends love the baby backs. Dinners come with a choice of two sides.  Sandwiches usually include one side.

Half rack of spareribs with steak fries and salad
Full rack of baby backs with beans and coleslaw

BBQ chicken with slaw, beans and fries

Brisket sandwich with bbq sauce or order it as a au jus dip. 
This is one of the best dip sandwiches around - melts in your mouth

I can't believe I haven't written about this place sooner!  I eat here all the time because it is really good.  This is a very friendly place and Teddy, the owner is almost always on hand.

  1. Wow!!! Mouthwatering dishes… I think I should visit once. Hey you know there is also one lunch restaurant in Ventura? They serve BBQ, burritos and mesquite in authentic Mexican style. They also serve these foods with accompaniments like rice, beans, tortillas etc. For more information please visit http://sbchickenranch.com/menu/.
