The Outdoor Grill was established in 1996 by Neil and Jeff Paul. Their philosophy is “Good food, fast.” The restaurant immediately received sensational reviews from the L.A. Times and LA Weekly! This was news to me… I live close by and had never tried it. I have totally been missing out. It’s amazing!
They are boasting that they offer “unbelievable taste and exceptional quality,” and they sure do! And Outdoor Grill is really an outdoor grill on the corner of Washington Place. I must have driven past it hundreds of times! Who knew?!
The menu offers everything you’d find at a classic barbecue joint such as decadent tri-tip, baby back ribs, beef ribs, chicken, and catfish! Everything is smothered in their signature seasoning and special barbecue sauce and grilled to perfection. Yum.
They have fun ways to combo up your order so you can have a great sampling of menu items. With wonderful salads (with homemade dressings), pulled pork sandwiches, burgers, and authentic tacos to round out the choices it will be hard to decide on your meal. All orders/combos come with a wide selection of sides such as macaroni and cheese, corn bread, garlic bread, cole slaw and potato salad, baked beans, french fries, and rice. Try them all!
Outdoor Grill is located 12630 ½ Washington Place in Los Angeles.
