Ribs, Steaks & Hot Spicy Wings

Can anyone please recommend some Man vs Food type restaurants in LA. We're looking to eat in some restaurants that specialise in mouth watering 'fall of the bone' ribs, steak sandwiches, hot buffalo wings, etc

Many Thanks

Chas

For steaks, there is a Stuart Anderson's Black Angus right across from Del Amo Mall on Carson Street that is reasonably priced. For more upscale, try Fleming's in Manhattan Beach on Rosecrans (dinner only) they have very good steaks but pricey.

I think most people here do their best to help people AVOID those restaurants that have the gimmick huge portion items without quality to go along.

The best places in LA for ribs include BigMista’s, Bludo’s BBQ, Woody’s BBQ, JNJ Burger Shack, Original Texas Barbecue King and Smoke City. Some of these places are spots I have no problem going to during the day, but I wouldn't spend much time there during the night.

Some of the above might have chicken wings as well. For places that specialize in hot wings look at the Hot Wings Cafe, California Wings and you can also look at the chains like Hooters, Wing Stop and Buffalo Wild Wings.

For steak sandwich, do you mean Philly Cheesesteak or just steak?

Great sandwich places, not necessarily steak are, Bay Cities Deli, Boo's Philly Cheesesteaks and Hoagies, Big Mike's Philly Steaks & Subs and Langer's Deli.

In Torrance there's Lucille's Smokehouse BBQ and in nearby Long Beach there's Johnny Rebs' Southern Roadhouse . Below are their reviews on TA.

Lucille's and Johhny Reb's are chains with fair to middling BBQ. The ones I listed are the real deal, down home BBQ.

When you say "Man vs Food" type places, I assume you're looking for places with big portions? Those are my kind of places!

Two other chain restaurants that aren't bad are the Cheesecake Factory and Claim Jumpers. Both are known for their big portions on most items.

If you're looking for fast food type places, go to the Hat, which has the best and biggest chili fries!

And since you're in Torrance, go to this place for some good ol' Hawaiian food! And of course, big portions too!
