LA Weekly's Description
Crusted with black and deeply smoky, the spareribs at Phillips Barbecue are rich and crisp and juicy, not too lean. Beef ribs, almost as big around as beer cans, are beefy as rib roasts beneath their coat of char, tasty even without the sauce. They are the only ribs that can compete on equal terms with the best from Kansas City or Tuscaloosa. And the extra-hot sauce, so crowded with whole dried chiles that the ribs occasionally look as if they have been embellished with Byzantine mosaics, is exhilarating. The newest location, in the well-scrubbed chalet-style Crenshaw building that until recently housed the well-regarded Leo's Bar-B-Q, is only a couple of blocks south of the 10 freeway.

The quality of their Sliced Beef is evident, even if you're not an expert. (very lean & so tender). I don't eat Pork, but their's looks/smells so good, I'm tempted, each time I go in there. The Beef Ribs are meaty and long. (The last place I used to frequent, began cutting the Ribs in half, about 2 years ago, so I looked around, found and tried Phillips and have sold every since. My company used them to cater a lot of their events). I try new places and some come close to the quality and/or quantity, but never both at the same time. My wedding planner thought I wa nuts when I said I want Phillip's B-B-Q for that event. Turned out; everyone loved it!
