For anyone north of the 101, getting to Bludso's Compton during an hour where they still have meat can be a challenge.

Me too. Like you, I gambled and took some out of towners there w/o having been there myself. Was pleasantly surprised, especially given the time.

Bludso's For White People™- first visit.

Had a pretty fine meal over at BFWP on Friday night. Pretty diverse crew, not many tiny hats but white people black people, asian people, mexican people, pretty much all kinds of people.

We got "the plate" to split amongst a party of 4. At 9:30pm on a Friday night (aka 30 minutes before closing) we got the last hot link and they were out of chicken. They subbed with an additional half rack of pork ribs - in hindsight we should've triple downed on the brisket.

So, onto the food

- Hot links - tasty enough, no arguments
- Pulled pork - same as above
- Half rack pork ribs - tasty, well smoked meaning not totally fall off the bone but having some tooth left in the meat, great spice rub + smokey taste
- rib tips - also fine but not spectacular, really smokey but would have preferred them a little mor etender
- brisket - holy shit second coming of christ brisket, we pretty much inhaled the brisket on the plate. had some pieces that tasted like prime rib it was so ridiculous.
- sides - I was really, really impressed by the sides here. Didn't love the cole slaw or collared greens but appreciate what they were trying to do. destroyed the corn bread, pickles, beans, & potato salad. Mac salad was decent too.

$5 PBR's, $10 old fashioneds. Total bill for plate + 5 beers = $130 + tip. We had enough leftovers to feed 2 people for lunch the next day.

Final note: In all honestly, the place wasn't that hipstery.

Petit Trois, No Reservations, No Phone, No Cash & No tipping...

appreciate the report back, the line isn't so long and the sandwich prices (lunch time, after 10pm) are reasonable to me.

If I drink water that's $16.52 out the door.

thanks for the detailed review, how long did you wait?

btw, Langer's sandwich + drink + tip = $20, so it seems Petit Trois is a mere $3 markup beyond Langers.

I was actually expecting way more than $14.

High cost of entry will keep lines reasonable and the riff raff (aka me) out

Not gonna hate. If I could sell less and make the same amount of money I sure as hell would.

Shibucho, boy, have I missed it.

He told one customer who inquired about whether the uni was from Santa Barbara with "How should I know ? I just cut fish. Maybe the fisherman knows."

that's pretty ridiculous.

anyway, you've turned me off.
