It’s been said many times, in many ways - LA is not a BBQ town. That’s what makes Gus’s all the more special. One of our favorite BBQ spots in the city, you can’t go wrong with the St. Louis spare ribs or Southern fried chicken, and you definitely can’t go wrong with bringing your own bottle of syrah to go with both. And with a corkage fee of $10, you can do just that.
