Phillips Bar-B-Que is all business. The sign out front at the Southern-style spot reminds you that it’s to-go only (although there’s a spare table in the parking lot, if you’re lucky). Ordering and pick-up lines are separated, the former is organized by an efficient divider. Which is all to say, expect things to get busy. Very. Around mealtimes, the entire West Adams community pours in for their excellent smoked meat, like succulent pork ribs and rib tibs smothered in a thick, glistening sauce. Everything can be served either a la carte, in a sandwich, or combined with a few sides, but the sleeper hit here are their chicken links. The sausage is sliced into air hockey puck-like rounds, tasting spicy and gritty from the ground meats. Order this by the pound.
