Moo’s Craft Barbeque
Andrew and Michelle Muñoz played a major part in the rise of backyard barbecue, pumping out stunning Texas-style brisket and Mexican-American sides from their home in East LA in 2017 before moving to Smorgasburg on Sundays, followed by a pickup model from the Arts District’s Crafted Kitchen and then, finally, a brick-and-mortar home of their own in Lincoln Heights, which opened in June 2021. Throughout it all the BBQ has been stellar and stunningly consistent, and their menu has grown and changed to include a variety of specials influenced by the flavors of LA like burnt ends with Korean-style glaze, smoked chicken tostadas, mushroom tacos, and a bonkers smoked burger. It doesn’t hurt that their new restaurant also has more than 25 taps of the best local beer.
How to enjoy: Walk up or order ahead via Toast.
