Shady Groves Foods review image
7.1
$$$$

After nearly a decade of BBQ pop-ups, the father-son duo behind Shady Grove Foods opened this brick-and-mortar space right next door to Gusto Bread on 4th Street. The restaurant specializes in what they call “Long Beach-style BBQ,” which pulls from Cajun, Cambodian, Mexican, and Thai flavors. You’ll find pulled pork sandwiches and sticky beef ribs as well as specials like a honey chipotle tomahawk steak with a side of chorizo rice at this unique BBQ joint. Nothing has completely blown us away, but we do enjoy seeing so much creativity at a BBQ restaurant. Shady Groves is open for lunch and dinner on weekdays and brunch on weekends.
