Slowly but surely, L.A.'s barbecue scene is becoming respectable, and this latest addition has elements of simple Texas-style 'cue along with some Argentine elements. The Pit Smoked BBQ opened in Burbank last week after a relatively quick turnaround from the former Don Diego's. The menu starts off with a trio of sandwiches, from chopped brisket to pulled pork, then ventures off in a by-the-pound offering of sliced brisket, chicken wings, and baby back ribs.

Side dishes include baked beans and a swell version of macaroni and cheese. Finally, a worthy empanada can make a friendly companion to the meat, as well as some chimichurri sauce. Like popular barbecue spots in Texas, The Pit serves from 11:30 a.m. until the meat runs out. [EaterWire]
