This is the perfect place if you are looking for something different - it's not the usual molassas based pork and beef Louisiana Q like everyone else around here (like Bear Pit or Chris' & Pitts) makes, but the Texas style dry-rub and vinegar-based-sauce Beef BBQ, Brisket or Ribs, with Hot-links or Chicken for alternatives. A handful of sweet pickle chips, some Cole Slaw or Potato Salad, good beans, bread to soak up the sauce...
There isn't any decor to speak of - but you came to eat well, and eat well you will. Simple food done right. Reasonably priced for the huge portions served - $12 - 18 per person. Beer and Wine licensed.
Be prepared to take some home with you for tomorrow's lunch, bring an icebox to keep it cold overnight if you're a tourist - and don't ask the hotel to microwave it for you without watching that plate at all times, or it might come back a bit lighter...
About an hour's drive north of Disneyland if you're visiting. Up I-5 to 'Ventura Fwy' US-134 West, to 'San Diego Fwy' I-405 North, to Roscoe Blvd. exit. Go East (right) on Roscoe about 0.3 mile to Sepulveda, turn South (right), 0.2 miles on left.
Cash - Visa - AX - Diners - Discover - MC.
On-site parking (just enough) or street parking.
HC Accessible in ground floor restaurant but it's an old building with smaller aisles. NOTE: The restrooms are clean but tiny, have token locks (ask for one on the way out) and are NOT ADA Compliant - fine if you can transfer or get 6 feet on crutches or cane. (Bring someone out to watch your chair, the restrooms are outside.)
Damn, now I want to go "Get a prescription filled at the Doctors" for dinner. Oh well, what a way to go.
