Had a chance to go by Pecos Bill’s Pit Bar-B-Q in Glendale, CA today. It had been a really long time since I’d been there and I recall fondly how I would stop there with my parents when I was a kid to get a pound of pulled pork, bag of buns, and enough cole slaw and baked beans to feed an army (or just our family for two or three meals).
Here’s a view of their sign when you first walk up:
It’s a tiny little place with a window where you order and watch the pitmaster chop the meat (beef or pork) right in front of you:
Here’s their bare bones (no pun intended) menu:
I had a beef sandwich and a pork sandwich. Wolfed down the beef before I could take a photo, but here’s the pork:
Both were just as great as they were when I first had them (note they are a little sloppy and greasy, but that’s the way I expect them to be). I’d order a side of their hot BBQ sauce too as it really makes the sandwich. Here’s what they used to look like many, many years ago:
I’ve never tried the ribs (or the ham or turkey sandwiches), but I hear they are all really tasty. If you’re in the area (near any of the studios in Glendale/Burbank) you should check it out. They are only open until 3 though (or until their meat runs out).
