Moo's doesn't just make some of the best BBQ we've ever tasted—it makes some of the best food, period. Of course the BBQ is the draw from husband-and-wife team Andrew and Michelle Muñoz, who started Moo's Craft Barbecue as an underground Eastside pop-up before becoming one of Smorgasburg's most popular vendors. Now they've opened their first brick-and-mortar restaurant, right in the heart of Lincoln Heights, and offer their signature Texas-style smoked brisket that's perfectly encrusted with a peppery blend of spices. There are sausages, too (one of our favorite bites in town, in fact), along with their signature "CaliMex" sides such as esquites; heaped-high sandwiches, like the Sloppy Moo, which combines brisket, sausage and pork; and a rotating tap list that features mostly L.A.-area breweries. Be sure to look for specials, too, such as the smoked pastrami, which is always worth an order, and grab a seat on the patio.
