The food was good, not great but will get you out of a crave. The menu doesn't have enough BBQ items. The meatloaf was really good along with the mashed potatoes. The Carolina pulled pork sandwich was ok, the kids chicken littles are more

I have never had a bad experiance at Zeke's. I am frankly rather surprised about the below bad services reviews. Maybe because I have only gone for lunch and it's not too busy? Either way, I usually get the rib combo plate. Beef, baby

Pros: Great rub, nice sides, good beer selection

I eat a lot of BBQ all over the country and Zeke's is on par with great BBQ that you'd find anywhere including the south. The portions were extremely generous and the pulled chicken and pork were just the right tenderness with extra sauce

Dissapointed by all the hyped reviews on this site. Sweet potato fries were soft and squishy and their $20 beef ribs were bone and sauce, and like most LA joints service was lousy. Best part was eating outside by Santa Monica Blvd.

Another place that is conveniently located near my work. Unfortunately, like most of the other eateries around Highland-Santa Monica-La Brea intersections, the food is not so hot. The one thing I can wholeheartedly recommend is the root

This place is right near my house, so I go there all the time. It's really casual...perfect for a cheap and quick meal out. They have a variety of delicious BBQ items and sides to go with them. The beef brisket is the best I've had and the ribs are great as well. They also have 4 different BBQ sauces, so I'm sure everyone can find something they'll love. The service is always great too!

When we walked in, we seated ourselves after standing there for about 10 minutes. Then as people who came in after us were waited upon, we complained, only to be brushed off and told, they'd be there in a minute. They continued to ignore

The pulled pork BBQ sandwich, with hush puppies, and mashed potatoes is about the tastiest combination I have ever had! They're prices were reasonable, and I was ridiculously stuffed. But somehow found room for the pecan pie a la mode:)

The Denny's of BBQ, Zeke's is corporate drek at its worst. Not only over-priced but you have a waiter to tip also, unheard of in any BBQ joint I've ever been in.

The atmosphere can only be equaled by an airport or a police station.

My roots are in Kansas City so I know good ribs when I taste them. Zeke's has the best I've had in LA but the ribs aren't even my favorite. For me it is a toss up between the beef brisket and the pulled pork. No one else in LA comes
