22 LA Restaurants That Have Thanksgiving Dinner Covered

Legendary pitmaster Kevin Bludso has already sold out of his fabled fried turkeys for the holiday, but there are still many massive meats, signature sides, and whole pies available for your holiday dining pleasure. Order up a smoked turkey or try a whole nine-pound smoked brisket or pork shoulder. Look for sides of cornbread stuffing, collard greens, and mashed sweet potatoes, along with Bludso’s good-and-gooey mac and cheese. For dessert, do a sweet potato pie or a half-tray of banana pudding. And if you’d rather be in Maui right now, grab a bottled Mai Tai or Jungle Bird.
Takeout details: meats $100-$295; sides $12-$90; desserts and pies, $32-$45; cocktails, $25.

23 Essential Black-Owned Restaurants You Should Know in LA

Though Bludso’s owner Kevin Bludso hails from Compton, you’re unlikely to find authentic Texas BBQ of this caliber west of the Lone Star State. That’s because as a child, Bludso spent his summers in Corsicana, Texas, where his aunt Willie May Fields introduced him to Texas-style BBQ. By the time he reached double digits, Bludso was cooking alongside his aunt, and in 2008 he opened Bludso’s first location—a small takeout BBQ stand in his hometown of Compton. The empire has since grown to include locations in the LAFC Soccer Stadium, the Proud Bird Food Bazaar by LAX, and a sprawling restaurant and bar called San Antone by Bludso’s in Melbourne, Australia. Cousin to soul food, BBQ is also best shared with friends who won’t judge you for slurping sauce off your fingertips: order The Bludso’s Tray, which serves six to seven people, and includes a half-pound of brisket, half-pound of pulled pork, half-chicken, full rack of pork ribs, half-pound of rib tips, two Texas red hot beef links, half-pint of all sides, pickles, cornbread, and BBQ sauce for just $130—or less than $20 per person.
