Much like our style in the eighth grade, A’s BBQ refuses to adhere to any one label. Masters in craft BBQ, smash burgers, and fried chicken sandwiches, you’ll find them slinging ribs that taste like tamarind one weekend, then super-thin patties injected with birria consommé the next, with Chicano flavors at the heart of all of it. This is Los Angeles cooking at its peak.
