Wrigley BBQ & Grill


If a foil-lined container of smoky pork ribs with a side of candied yams and collard greens sounds like your brand of self-care, we highly suggest Wrigley BBQ near Signal Hill. This casual takeout-only operation is short on frills (there’s a drink cooler and a few Lakers posters inside and that's about it) but they more than make up for it on the barbecue front. Brisket, spare ribs, rib tips, chicken, hot links—all the staples here are nicely tender and rich in smoke flavor, enhanced by a molasses-tinged sauce that is dabbed on everything. They also offer a standout selection of Southern-style sides like mac and cheese, fried cabbage, and dirty rice, each satisfying enough to make a meal. Get whatever dessert is on special that day (shout out 7-Up cake) and a cup of their peach lemonade, which might not involve real peaches but is so refreshing on a hot day you won’t mind.
