J and J Burger and Barbecue

Nothing Fancy, But Good Q!

I'd read about J and J Barbecue somewhere online. I've driven by this place hundreds of times. I go to the Sterling Beauty Supply, just west of the stand. After reading the online review, I decided to give this place a try. Larry and I went over for lunch this past Saturday.
It was fairly busy at 1pm. The window on the corner is for burgers, hot dogs, etc. The window around the side is for barbecue. We wanted to order one brisket sandwich and one pork sandwich. They were out of pork, so we both had the brisket sandwich with a side of barbecued beans and lemonade for $6 and change.

The brisket was smokey and tender. The rolls used for the sandwiches are crispy and firm so that the barbecue sauce doesn't totally drench the bread. The beans were slightly honeyed and sweet for my taste, but Larry loved 'em. Next time, I'd like to try the potato salad.

There was a large party of people near us that ordered platefuls of ribs. They looked divine.J and J Burger and Barbecue, 5754 W Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, (323) 933-7366
