LAReview

Popping up at various locations around Northeast LA, River Street is a tiny operation cranking out excellent Texas-inspired BBQ. We like their peppery brisket a lot, but the stand out dish here is without question the pulled pork. Cooked in a simple salt and pepper rub and finished in an apple juice bath, it’s sweet, salty, and profoundly buttery, and is always the first thing cleared from our tray. Also, be sure to keep a lookout on their Instagram for whatever the daily special is, which can range from Tex-Mex tacos to hot chicken.
