Where we've featured it
The guy behind Slab started out as a secret pop-up in his Studio City driveway (that he called Trudy’s Underground BBQ) and is now operating inside a shiny space on 3rd Street in Beverly Grove. The order-at-the-counter space is casual and straightforward, and the BBQ is some of the best you’ll find in LA city limits. Most people are here for the brisket, but it’s the spare ribs that we’re still thinking about. Be sure to throw in a side order of mac and cheese, and leave yourself some extra time - lines get long during peak lunch hours.
Slab is a casual, order-at-the-counter BBQ spot in Beverly Grove where you can get huge trays of meat that you’re not sharing with your vulture coworkers. The ideal order is a half-rack of spare ribs, a quarter-pound of brisket, and a side of mac and cheese - for yourself. If you want to be generous, you can let Alan take a bite of the pecan pie bar you got for dessert, but one bite means one bite.
