Discover the Best Barbecue Restaurants Around Westwood

If you’re craving some good old-fashioned BBQ, we’ve got you covered. Three of our favorite barbecue restaurants around Westwood serve everything from pulled chicken sandwiches to saucy ribs. Best of all, they’re just minutes from Westwood Glen Commons. So whenever you’re ready to meet your friends for a delicious meal, visit one of these eateries near our Westwood apartments:

Blue Ribbon BBQ

Founded in 1995, Blue Ribbon takes inspiration from the classic roadside barbecue joints of the American South. The pitmasters cook over oak and hickory hardwoods to create bold, flavorful meats. The sides are just like grandma used to make, and nearly every dish is prepared from scratch daily. Choices include pulled pork sandwiches, barbecue burritos, and St. Louis-style ribs. Round out your meal with a side of potato salad and a slice of key lime pie for dessert.

Pit Stop Barbecue

At Pit Stop, you’ll enjoy dishes inspired by Tennessee and Carolina BBQ. The recipes come from five generations of three families. Steeped in the unique traditions of barbecue and soul food, Pit Stop is truly one of a kind. Popular dishes include pork ribs, beef sausage sandwiches, and chicken. On the side, you can order a generous helping of macaroni and cheese. Pit Stop is open Thursday through Saturday.

Sweet Cheeks Q

Sweet Cheeks Q invites all of its customers to pull up a chair and stay awhile. Indeed, Tiffani Faison, the restaurant’s owner and chef, designed the entire restaurant with comfort in mind. In fact, she used her own childhood backyard for visual inspiration. When it comes to food, Faison also offers her own unique take on Southern-style barbecue by blending traditional recipes with modern culinary techniques. Menu offerings include sliced prime brisket, heritage pulled pork, and giant smoked beef ribs. You can enjoy your main course with a side of buttermilk biscuits and the rocky road cheesecake for dessert.
