Max City is an all-around solid BBQ spot in Eagle Rock with a big menu filled with everything tri-tip to brisket sandwiches to chicken wings. But what makes this tiny spot unique to LA are its St. Louis-style ribs. Smaller and fattier than baby back ribs, these are ideal to put out during a backyard BBQ when you simply aren’t in the mood to stand around at the grill all day. Depending on the size of your crowd, spring for one of their “Feed The Crowd” platters that feed anywhere from four to fifteen people and come with a variety of meats and sides.
