Reviews and Recommendations from Trusted Sources
Gus's Barbecue features retro touches like a tin ceiling, but the feel is decidedly modern, with soft lighting and dark wood details in the rear dining room. In a nod to the establishment's history, vintage black-and-white photos of South Pasadena line the walls, while a chalk mural of a blues musician looks down on diners seated in stylish red booths. Start off with appetizers like shredded onion strings or an iron skillet of dense, moist cornbread served with a neon green jalape
If such SoCal perennials as Phillips Bar-B-Que in Leimert Park are hall of famers, then think of this as the rookie of the year. Brothers Chris and John Bicos took a beloved though tired restaurant that dated back to 1946, updated its interior, and reinvigorated the barbecue menu with superior versions of classics like beer-braised Texas brisket.
