The bar here is fantastic! The cow chair out front, also fantastic! I ate the burger, it was okay, they used a muffin or something for the bun, not such a fan of that, my vegetarian wife had to order the grilled cheese off the kids menu, i would go back for the bar, but would eat somewhere else first.

Cool atmosphere and a great location right on Ventura Blvd. A lot of my meat eating friends love coming here but there is only one entree on the menu for vegetarians. Lots of sides to choose from.

You'll LOVE Mr. Cecils. It has the dried out grilled ribs, soggy fries and bland sauce direct from Smart & Final's that you CRAVE. And then the pretentious Chuckie Cheese meets Nightmare on Elm Street decor will make you swoon. And you

Pros: Nothing like Dr. Hogly Wogly's

Cons: Not expensive enough.

I have been here two times, and both times have I left saying "I should come here more often!" I am thinking of adding it to my list of regular haunts. I tried the pulled pork sandwich the first, then last week I enjoyed the BBQ'd brisket

Pros: GREAT RIBS and STAFF

Cons: ITs a drive over the hill for us but worth it.

In a half-empty restaurant, the hostess parked us at the bar, left us for thirty min. then when I asked her what we were waiting for, told me that she had walked through the (empty) bar calling us (!). UNBELIEVABLE! The unbridled

I heard so much about this place that I had my daughter take me here for Mother's Day. BIG MISTAKE!!! I love Baby Back Ribs and love grilling them at home. Someone even said this place was as good as Tommy Bahama's in Palm Desert. THEY CAN

Pros: Location!

Cons: The Worst Baby Back Ribs I've ever had!

We came here for 2008 Super Sunday - all you can eat for $20.00 & it was the greatest. Now they're serving sliced brisket which is the best thing since sliced bread!!! And those beef ribs are easily the best in southern California. Looks

Very good ribs (warning: there's pretty much only ribs on the menu so only come if everyone in your party is in the mood for ribs) and the cornbread's really good, too. BUT the prices seem way, way higher than what they should be.

What a disapointment. I've been going there since they opened and also brought many friends and family there. The food changed. I don't know what happened but it's GROSS now. GROSS! The ribs are so fatty I couldn't eat them and the fries

I had the beef St Louis style ribs at the Sherman Oaks location. The meat was falling off the bone, and the dry rub seasoning was fantastic. Several years ago I moved to CA from South Carolina, and ever since I have been searching for good

Pros: Great ribs and service

Any place can do a decent job with pork ribs and spare ribs. Not many places know how to make beef ribs where the meat practically falls off the bone the way Mr. Cecil's does. The Sherman Oaks location is a stark contrast to the original

I was excited to finally try this place after hearing so much about "great ribs." Well, I found out - they suck! I can't believe how much hype this place has gotten. Have peoples taste buds been compromised by air pollution or some

Cecil's is a great addition to the Valley's restaurant scene! The food is very good (the hushpuppies are and the BBQ sandwiches are great). Desserts aren't their strong point, but the full bar and drinks they pour make up for it. Staff is
