JR's Barbeque was founded in 1998 in Culver City by Jeanie Jackson and son, Bobby Johnson. With a combined restaurant experience of 52 years, we decided to bring our brand of Memphis style barbeque to our home in Los Angeles. Now our passion for delivering the best food possible is available for all of L.A. to enjoy.
Our food is homemade and prepared with no MSG or other preservatives. The magic begins with the wood we choose to slow cook our meat: mesquite, white oak, and pecan. We use our custom blend dry rub to enhance the meat flavor. Slow cooking and quality are our secrets to food that soothe and satisfy the palate. Every mouthful is as TENDER AS MOTHER'S LOVE and that's the reason to pay us a visit. We are close to one of the greatest sources of celebrities in the world and they like to eat well too!
Our award winning barbeque sauce is a family secret consisting of the finest herbs and spices and is sure to hook you from the very beginning. Make sure you sample the HOT beforehand because it has been known to knock the best of them out in the very first round.
We are sure you will enjoy our family home-style atmosphere. Whether you decide to sit at the horseshoe shaped bar or one of the tables in the adjoining room, you will enjoy the live flowers on the table and the wonderful artwork on the walls. We go out of our way to make your dining experience comfortable.
