Traditional American BBQ with an Asian flare. What else would you expect in LA? Why go to this BBQ spot over other ones? 1. Catfish Nuggets, 2. Hushpuppies, and 3. Cornbread. Aside from having great BBQ, this spot serves some staples of

We have been coming here since they have been open. The rub on the meat is really good. The hush puppies are so good that I can come here just to order them. Although I like this place I feel as if the quality has been sliding for a while.

Dont forget to check out all the little piggies adorning the walls in this uniquely shaped eatery. Definitely a meat eaters paradise. The sauces, mild and spicy, are great.

Mr Cecils has terrific ribs - with a range of sauce types from mild to super spicy. Hot links too. Small dining area so we usually call ahead and do take out. Very friendly staff. Reasonable prices.

Why does anyone come here anymore? I went a few weeks ago and drove past it today and thought what exactly is it that keeps people coming back; or their new customers coming in? Even from the outside the place looks dirty - going in it

This place is pretty small but has really really yummy food. The hush puppies are to die for, as are the sausages with mustard. The wings were okay, and I'm not really a rib eater but my husband liked them a lot, especially after smeraing

What more can I say, let your mouth be the judge. One full order of Mr. Cecils beef ribs will feed 2-3 hungry people because there is so much darn good meat on dem bones. We tried Baby Blues and my oh my what a disappointment. My friends

Many people feel that this place is a shabby shack with poor BBQ. Mr. Cecil ambiance is unique and feels like a real BBQ joint. Yeah, it's small but the ribs are worth waiting for. The price is right and the best deal is the Triple Combo

Being from Tennessee its hard to find good ribs out here in LA. Very hard in fact! Mr. Cecil's would be considered average compared to what i'm used to back home but its definetely the best i've found in los angeles for baby back ribs.

Since there are limited BBQ choices on the Westside in LA - this is a good choice. Decent pork and beef ribs and the standard sides. The prices are a little too expensive though - $25 for a pork and beef rib combo. It's good, but not

This place is small, but boy, does it pack a punch! The hush puppies have got me hooked: they're sweet and scrumptious! The corn is grilled to perfection. Everything is delicious, even dessert, which I normally skip, but their coconut cake is somethingelse. The service isn't spectacular, but the food sure is. I'm definitely coming here again.
