I was recently at Bludsos La Brea and it was not the same as Compton. The bbq tastes like McDonalds, which is not a bad thing but not the same as Compton. Also, the ribs don’t taste the same at all. They are more heavy on the smoke and less of a sugar based rub. I really loved Compton ribs and rib tips, but La Brea is not Compton. Most of the food tastes different. I did think the brisket was better than Compton, but the ribs are more of a less is more approach. I really wish they served up the ribs and rib tips more like the Compton location. I used to buy a whole chicken, rack of ribs and a pound of rib tips. And the greens were delicious as well.
I guess what I’m saying is, the name Bludso is on the restaurant, but the food is markedly different.
