the barbecue blog, so I thought a post here would be in order (something like 200x more people read this blog, though to be fair I only update the other one a few times per year). Zeke's can be inconsistent, but when it's good it's great, and I find their sides addictive. I don't go there nearly as much as I used to - it's actually been over a year since I'd been there - but the other day I got a strong craving for two of their items, so Elizabeth and I headed up to Montrose for lunch.
The kettle chips were great, as usual, some of the best homemade potato chips I have ever had. Often restaurants over-salt their chips but Zeke's leaves them alone, letting the flavor of the fried potato shine through. (The mustard sauce always goes well with the chips, though usually I request a side of spicy chili mayo. But I didn't this time.)
It will probably be a few more months before I return to Zeke's. There are several barbecue places in Los Angeles that I prefer. But I do like the place and I am sure that one day in the future I will get a craving for some of that slaw and those potato chips and I will be back.
