Where we've featured it
Located on that bizarre Eastern fringe of Culver City where every major street merges into one, you’ve probably passed JR’s a thousand time on your way to LAX, and never knew it. So next time you’re headed out of town, give yourself an extra half hour and go stop by the best Memphis-style BBQ in LA. The ramshackle space is a complete throwback, and sitting on that U-shaped bar while going to town on some ribs and baked beans is our definition of personal success.
JR’s BBQ has been operating in Culver City since 1998, and is one of the few spots in LA where you can get real-deal Memphis-style BBQ. The meat is cooked with a custom dry rub and served with house BBQ sauce. As with most Memphis-style BBQ, pork is the name of the game here, so we recommend starting with either the pulled pork sandwich or the pork ribs. That said, their brisket is not to be missed.
