Phillips Barbecue (Bar-B-Que) is a longtime L.A. ’cue staple that serves legit smoked meats under slatherings of tangy sauces. That narrow corridor leading up to the counter fills up quickly with crowds waiting to get their hands on Phillips’ signature spare ribs, and for good reason: Tender and smoky, the ribs come with a sauce that ranges from mild to spicy (though your hands get dirty either way). There’s corn on the cob and beans, potato salad and yams, and BBQ meat to the max. What’s lacking? Enough chairs and tables, so be prepared to take your tinfoil of pulled pork and your styrofoam containers of side dishes elsewhere.
