The first time I tried Smoque, I was unconvinced, but I'm so glad I gave them a second chance! Every time my boyfriend and I go here (which is kinda often, since it's just half a mile from our apartment), we stumble home rubbing our food-baby-bellies and groaning. My favorites: the St. Louis style ribs, the chicken, the brisket chili. I'd skip the fries if I were you, but the boyfriend disagrees.

As a native Texan, I give Barry (owner) MAD props for satisfying my high expectations for smoked meat. All the hub-bub that I've heard about is spot is true. Run, don't walk to this meaty haven... but be prepared to waddle out.

Tried Smoque BBQ while on vacation in Chicago. This is honestly some of the best BBQ I have had. It makes me sad that in Los Angeles we lack good BBQ. The staff was attentive and helpful. They are more than happy to find you a seat once you place your order. They also bring the food to your table and cleanup once you are done. The food was amazing! I was able to try the Sliced Brisket Sandwich with some Mac n Cheese. The brisket was super juicy and tender. Literally melts in your mouth. We also ordered a platter with Chicken, Ribs, and Links. All the meats were perfectly smokey, with a great bark on the outside. The sides were also delicious, but obviously the meat is what people come for. It was definitely worth the drive outside the city!
