If you want some Ribs I definatly recommend this place from the outside it looks like a little hole in the wall but the ribs are out of this world!!!!!! The flavor is unique and comes in 3 different spice levels.when i first got introduced to phillips while pregnant it became one of my cravings and its funny because I never was big on ribs but i sure lov e me some phillips. I go there every chance i get. some may say its a lil pricy but you pay for what you get......some MEATY FINGER-LICKING GOOD BBQ RIBS

The food is delicious! But, the service is awful. James, the person that takes telephone orders was very rude. When I asked him to explain what comes on a large platter, he responded with a huff and frustration in his voice that sounded like he didn't want to serve me. I will not go back to this restaurant, eventhough the food is good.

I know people who love this place but I do not see what all the hype is about. I like my barbeque smoked slow so my meat is pink from the smoked flavor and falling off the bone. I have never experienced that here and I've tried both locations. It really is just okay...nothing to write home about.

Coming from Florida I have a pretty good idea what I want in BBQ. Unfortunately I was let down by Phillip's as with many BBQ restaurants in LA. I had the pork rib sandwich with cole slaw and a shredded pork sandwich on the side. The concern started from the start when I was informed that they did not have ice tea or french fries. Two things I really want when I'm having a good pork sandwich. I had the sandwich first and it was what it was. A lot of unnecessary sauce, maybe to cover up the lack of flavor in the meat. The ribs were right along side with the sandwich. A lot of rub on them and then doused with sauce at the end. The cole slaw I had a hard time eating. There was very little if any smoked flavor in any of the meat. I will say that there was plenty of meat on the ribs and the service was very nice. However if you're looking for a solid pork sandwich or good smoked pit bbq this is not the place for you.

A few wks ago my cousin and I were craving BBQ and we went to the Church in Compton that sells dinners and the line was around the corner, I was too hungry to wait, so we drove back across town to Phillips. It was my first and last time.... THat was not BBQ... That was mud sauce... I love to eat and I love BBQ, but I was very very Disappointed, it made me wonder "" will people hype anything becuase someone else does"" I know we all have different things we enjoy, but the bitter flavor was awful. Service was nice, the people were great, i was all too eager after being there to eat since it was a pleasent visit, but that sauce was not the BIZZ
