Okay, so I haven't had ribs in every place in LA, but that's because once I dined at Jake's - I just can't bring myself to eat BBQ anywhere else.
It's a small family run restaurant, but it's generally busy - a good sign on a street where every other business is a restaurant. It's old school with a bucket of peanuts on every table - throw your shells on the floor!
The portions are huge, the service is great and the prices are reasonable for the quality and amount of food you get.
This is honestly one of my top 10 places to eat!
