    Robert Earl's BBQ - Long Beach, CA

    Though I live in Long Beach this place is way across town from where I am - like 12 miles across town - so it isn't in my neck the woods so much. i finally found myself in the area because i scored a sweet '75 Weber kettle just a few blocks away so i had a chance to stop by.

    So, let me preface this review of sorts with a few points that i think made this a less than grand experience.

    1. It was a Wednesday at 2:30 pm
    2. I didn't see smoke.
    3. I didn't smell smoke.
    4. there was no smoke.

    Conclusion -

    i was not served bbq. i was served reheated leftovers

    Now, had I visited on a smoking day, say a weekend maybe? Probably coulda had some better results because i was not entirely displeased with the experience.

    Pros-
    Great beans made with leftover brisket
    Great "patato" salad (love that spelling )
    nice tasting rib tips - good smoke flavor, tasty rub ( but re-warmed leftovers)
    properly served with plain white bread
    authentic bbq shack feel
    requisite wobbly fan in orderin' area
    real smokers in back lot
    friendly staff and family run

    cons-
    shitty, re-warmed brisket
    re-warmed leftover bbq on non-smokin' days
    not sure what grade meat being served
    it took 30 minutes to re-heat the leftover bbq meats
    no ice for the lemonade (but there for bbq so suck it up!)

    End Game -
    I will go back. i found enough flavor there that i have to give it a second chance. it was chili day for sure. like to hit it on an actual smokin' day to see if this place can deliver as promised. i think it has the pedigree for it. i want to believe it can. i'll follow up visit two when i make it happen.
