Bear Pit BBQ Restaurant
10825 Sepulveda Blvd (just north of 118 Frwy)
On the way home from a doc's appointment last night, my landlord wanted to stop for dinner and had a taste for BBQ. He knew this place was on the way home, on Sepulveda near the 118.
The place has been there for decades. According to their website, it looks like they opened in the late 40's. The decor and paintings on the wall certainly are from a time gone by. The floor is covered in wood shavings. I thought it has a great ambiance to it! It feels like some place you'd find out in the boonies.
We ordered the chicken and ribs combo. It came with choice of cole slaw, soup or salad as well as BBQ baked beans, fried fingerling style potatoes and garlic bread. The cost was $16 and change which didn't seem too bad. When the food got to the table, we were amazed at how much there was.
The ribs were huge and tasty, with the meat practically falling off the bone. Two different types of BBQ sauce were served on the side. We chose dark meat chicken and got a leg and back. Also very juicy and tasty with the meat easily pulling from the bone.
I don't know if any of you valley peeps have ever been there. But if you like good BBQ, I'd certainly recommend it. I've been to Hoggly Woggly's Tyler Texas BBQ just 3 miles down the road and I'll take Bear Pit over it ANY time!!
Watti, I know this is over in your direction!!
