I was so sad the first time I drove by the West L.A./Pico one and it had turned into a car dealership...
We used to go there all the time in college- and have prime rib- my roommate would order fries for all 3 sides... so the waitress remembered him and would call him "fries, fries and fries"

aw... and my grandpa used to take us there when I was a kid too- a different location (musta been in the valley)

you're making me sad- I used to love that place.

Hmmm- it still has a website:

although it only says Jakarta, Indonesia if you go to "Locations".. I wonder what happened?

I just found about the Chula Vista location
it closed as of 7/31/07

    i believe they closed down some years back, the one in the San Gabriel valley has been gone for maybe 5-10 years.

    I love Love's Wood Pit Barbecue. That was my first job as a hostess, 10 years ago when I was in high school. They have the best ribs and barbecue! From what I know, the only one left in LA is in Lakewood. They do have one in Chula Vista (San Diego County) and to my surprise, Indonesia.


    Used to work at Love's

    Wow! That goes waaayyyy back! I even remember the slogan/song. The web shows two; one in Chula Vista and another in San Diego. The url doesn't work for Chula Vista, though.

    I hope you find one.
