A South Pasadena landmark since 1946, Gus’s BBQ was purchased and remodeled by brothers Chris & John Bicos (owners of The Original Tops in Pasadena). The new Gus’s BBQ specializes in Traditional BBQ - California Style. Dive into an enormous plate of Memphis style baby back ribs or St. Louis spare ribs. You’ll definitely be back for their juicy Carolina style pulled pork sandwich, delicious cast iron cornbread or one of their many 100% Nebraska Chuck burgers. In the mood for classic comfort food? Try their Jack’s Mac and Cheese smothered in 4 cheeses, applewood smoked bacon, crimini mushrooms & drizzled with white truffle oil. You’ll leave knowing exactly why Gus’s food has been hailed, “….so good that we found ourselves eating more than we’d imagined” by S. Irene Virbila, Los Angeles Times. <br /><br /><br />Recently named one of the top 10 BBQ restaurants on the west coast by Sunset Magazine, Gus’s boasts a super hip bar that serves an impressive list of bourbon and draft beer.

In 1984, Rosa Mexicano set a new standard for Mexican cuisine when it first opened on the Upper East Side of New York City. Having served legions of fans for 25 years, we are thrilled to bring Rosa Mexicano's signature brand of authentic Mexican cooking in a relaxed, stylish setting to the West Coast for the first time. The 205-seat restaurant debuts at L.A. Live, a 5.6 million-square-foot sports and entertainment development in the heart of the revitalized downtown area, alongside many of the city's greatest attractions, including the Staples Center and Nokia Theatre. Bathed in our signature vibrant hues, this location features our award-winning guacamole en molcajete, our signature frozen pomegranate margaritas, modern architectural elements, flexible private dining options and comfortable outdoor patio seating--a perfect environment to introduce you to the festive atmosphere and delicious cuisine of Rosa Mexicano.

 Gardens of Taxco
Gardens of Taxco
Since 1971, The Gardens of Taxco has built its reputation on consistently providing the best Mexico-City Style Cuisine in Los Angeles. Your unique five course dining experience begins when your menu is presented verbally; combining details about the entrees with colorful signature sayings such as ‘born in the sauce’ and ‘Not hot, spicy’. The understated decor and festive atmosphere will transport you to a fine home in Mexico City.
