WOW I AM AMAZED – If you want some Ribs I definatly recommend this place from the outside it looks like a little hole in the wall but the ribs are out of this world!!!!!! The flavor is unique and comes in 3 different spice levels.when i first got introduced to phillips while pregnant it became one of my cravings and its funny because I never was big on ribs but i sure lov e me some phillips. I go there every chance i get. some may say its a lil pricy but you pay for what you get......some MEATY FINGER-LICKING GOOD BBQ RIBS
Good Food, Terrible Service – The food is delicious! But, the service is awful. James, the person that takes telephone orders was very rude. When I asked him to explain what comes on a large platter, he responded with a huff and frustration in his voice that sounded like he didn't want to serve me. I will not go back to this restaurant, eventhough the food is good.
Best Bbq in Los Angeles. – The best BBQ in L.A. ,the sauce is the best and the rib tips are meaty and tender . Also the prices are fair and the service is friendly. The peach cobbler tastes homemade and the smell there is so nice .
BEST BBQ EVERRRR – I HAVE BEEN EATING PHILLIPS BBQ FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS NOW...AND I LOVE IT! THE FOOD IS ALWAYS GREAT, AND SO IS THE SERVICE...I ALWAYS CALL IN MY ORDER AND PICK IT UP, BUT ON SATURDAY NIGHTS THEY DONT ACCEPT CALL IN ORDERS SO BE PREPARED FOR A LONG LINE!
j_scott ** please post what the name of the church is your talking about. I've been trying to figure what the name of the place we used to eat at as a child and im pretty sure your talking bout the same place sure would help. Thanks a bunch if you happen to see this note
Not all it's cracked up to be! – I know people who love this place but I do not see what all the hype is about. I like my barbeque smoked slow so my meat is pink from the smoked flavor and falling off the bone. I have never experienced that here and I've tried both locations. It really is just okay...nothing to write home about.
FAR FROM THE REAL DEAL! – Coming from Florida I have a pretty good idea what I want in BBQ. Unfortunately I was let down by Phillip's as with many BBQ restaurants in LA. I had the pork rib sandwich with cole slaw and a shredded pork sandwich on the side. The concern started from the start when I was informed that they did not have ice tea or french fries. Two things I really want when I'm having a good pork sandwich. I had the sandwich first and it was what it was. A lot of unnecessary sauce, maybe to cover up the lack of flavor in the meat. The ribs were right along side with the sandwich. A lot of rub on them and then doused with sauce at the end. The cole slaw I had a hard time eating. There was very little if any smoked flavor in any of the meat. I will say that there was plenty of meat on the ribs and the service was very nice. However if you're looking for a solid pork sandwich or good smoked pit bbq this is not the place for you.
NOT! I was so upset – A few wks ago my cousin and I were craving BBQ and we went to the Church in Compton that sells dinners and the line was around the corner, I was too hungry to wait, so we drove back across town to Phillips. It was my first and last time.... THat was not BBQ... That was mud sauce... I love to eat and I love BBQ, but I was very very Disappointed, it made me wonder " will people hype anything becuase someone else does" I know we all have different things we enjoy, but the bitter flavor was awful. Service was nice, the people were great, i was all too eager after being there to eat since it was a pleasent visit, but that sauce was not the BIZZ
the shade under a bar b q tree – i just recently checked out baby blues, and it was good. but there is a difference between "Da Bomb" and "good". Phillips influences/compells me to utter this phrase at every grubbing adventure. Phillips Isssss da Atom nucleus of Da Bomb Fool ! no doubt
Where is it? – I live around in the west LA area and on last Friday night after work, I decided to have some good food and headed to Phillips. But I couldn't find it with this address, and later I spot another one with the same name right around the exit of the CA-10 freeway. I went in, but to my surprise, they just offer take away. So I am wondering do they have another one where I can sit down and enjoy the food or that's just it? And if the address on this website is correct, where is it? I mean is there anyway that I can find it easier? (around what other stores?)
